Profile: Roy Wigmore, MATT Representative for Maindee

Hugh Roy Wigmore member of the Ministry Area Transition Team and Fabric Chair for Maindee Parish.

Lived all my life in the City of Newport and on getting married to Margaret some 54 years ago moved to Caerleon.

As a boy of 15 started an apprenticeship as a Gas fitter and plumber with the then Wales Gas Board.

On completion of my apprenticeship and following further academic study, for the rest of my working career I worked as a Mechanical Engineer in local government working for the City of Newport, Gwent County Council, Mid Glamorgan County Council and Torfaen County Borough Council and finally the Water Regulations Authority.

Nothing apart from family gives me more pleasure than being an active member of St John's Church.

I also have a passion for photography, country music and in particular old time country music.
