Simon Cox, Swansea born and bred, shares some of the past, present and future and tells us why he invested in Gower Regeneration:
“…perhaps we can all make a contribution to a brighter future for generations to come”
I work as a HR manager for Invacare a manufacturing company based in Pencoed. I have spent more than 30 years in HR and I am pleased to say that for most of my career, I have been based in Wales. I am a Swansea boy by birth and have lived in Three Crosses for 17 years with my wife Cath who is a primary school teacher and we have 3 children at various stages – all educated in Ysgol Gyfyn Gwyr – Rhydian graduated in Environmental Science from Aberystwyth Uni, Carys 2nd year in Exeter Uni studying Biology and Iwan embarking on GCSEs.
“I am a proud Welshman and feel privileged to live on Gower…”
“I am a keen runner having completed 10 marathons since the age of 40 and more recently a cyclist (yes a Mamil!) and hence spend a lot of time out on Gower roads and beaches trying to keep/get fit. Once a month I volunteer with the National Trust Saturday group – a great bunch of people trying to do our bit to help conserve the place we love and it’s also a fantastic antidote to sitting in an office all week! I am a proud Welshman and feel privileged to live on Gower and whilst I have seen lots of beautiful places around the world none compare to what we have here and I hope it stays that way.
“…if I can do a little bit for renewable energy on my door-step then so much the better!”
I am excited by this project, primarily as it is an investment in our future and if I can do a little bit for renewable energy on my door-step then so much the better! Hopefully there are more like minded people out there, so perhaps we can all make a contribution to a brighter future for generations to come.
