A FORMER Mayor of Llandudno who has worked tirelessly for the local community, will be made a Freeman of the town on Friday.

Terence Richard Davies, a retired school teacher, who lives in Penrhynside, was a town councillor for nearly 40 years. He has been recognised as an ambassador and role model for Llandudno.

A spokesman for Llandudno Town Council said: “Terry has shown outstanding dedication and enthusiasm for a number of local organisations and is well known for his hard work, wisdom, and humour.

“His voluntary work is driven by a strong desire to support local groups but also to make a difference in the town. He has served as a Trustee of Llandudno Museum, Oriel Mostyn, and Conwy Citizen’s Advice Bureau. In addition, he has devoted time and energy as a member of Llandudno Town Band, Llandudno Youth Club, the North Wales Playing Fields Association and as a governor at Ysgol Creuddyn and Ysgol Glanwydden. He has a particular love for the communities of Penrhynside and Penrhyn Bay and has represented and supported these communities well.

“He is a keen sportsman, having played for Llandudno Rugby Club and has facilitated a number of school sporting events. He is also a long serving member of Llandudno Catholic Church.

Terry said: “It was quite a surprise to hear a member of the public had asked the town council to make me a Freeman of Llandudno, I never expected anything like that. I am absolutely delighted to have the honour conferred on me.

“It never occurred to me that what I had done as a town councillor and in the community would result in this honour.”
