New Year Notes

New Year’s greetings from a slightly snowy Pontypridd.

We have had nothing like the snow that Ebbw Vale and Merthyr have had, but last night’s dusting was enough to get today’s Pontypridd vs. Ebbw Vale game postponed.

The 2000s were a tumultuous time for me; becoming a husband and father, and relocating to Pontypridd have all been enormous changes.

Work wise, my appointment as a non-executive at South Wales Probation Trust has been very rewarding, and further changes are afoot with an application to establish an all-Wales Trust currently under consideration by MoJ Ministers.

The one unchanging thing through the past decade has been the day job. Whilst it’s changed from the National Assembly for Wales to the Welsh Assembly Government, it’s still the same civil service. I joined on its establishment on 1 April 1999, so I’ve been in the organisation for over 10 years, my longest stint in one organisation, albeit doing a range of different jobs. Perhaps 2010 may be the time when this changes too.
