At the AGM on the 22nd April 2017 Malcolm Ridge, having served two years as President, was succeeded by Byron Davies, who was MP for Gower.
Malcolm joined the Society in 1970 and, after becoming a Committee Member in 1983, he was elected Chairman in 1990, retiring from that position in 2014 before being appointed as President in 2015.
Byron has shown a real and general interest in the affairs of the Society and indeed in Gower. He was brought up in Port Eynon and lives in Penclawdd. Whilst MP, he showed a real interest in the affairs of Gower, including Mawr, but particularly matters that were of particular concern to the Society, such as the proposed windfarm on Mynydd y Gwair, the cockle industry and the Cwm Ivy Sea Wall.< Back
