Cllr Graham White – Chairman

I was co-opted onto Parish Council in August 2016, following retirement of previous Councillor who had served 47 years. I will not be competing with that term. I have lived here for the last 20 years but in 1970 I rented a flat in Chantry House, then called Daglingworth Towers, when an Estate Management student at the Agricultural College, now Royal Agricultural University. I was a member of the Village Hall Committee not long after arriving in the village. Now retired I am still a Chartered Surveyor with 40 years experience in planning, development and house-building with New Town Corporations, private companies and PLCs.

I believe a good parish councillor should promote and protect the interests of the residents, whilst having regard to the policies of the County and District Councils.

Cllr Roger Giles

Originally from Dinas Powis, I had a retail floristry business with outlets in Cardiff and Penarth, and other business interests. We moved to Daglingworth in 1985.
One of the last called for National Service in the RAF, I was posted to Riyan in Arabia ( after six months training as a wireless operator) and seconded to the Hydrami Bedouin Leigon for a year. Returning to the UK, I was stationed with the American Air Force at Mildenhall 3 Group Bomber Command - it was the time of the "cold war".
I retired from the Ambulance Service eleven years ago where I was a driver/assistant to the duty Doctor with the Emergency Doctor Service.
