Congratulations to Michael Norman MBE!

Michael Norman, one of the founding trustees of the Tywi Gateway Trust, has been honoured in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list.

Awarded for his services to heritage, Michael was one of the founding members of the Welsh Historic Garden Trust 30 years ago and was a volunteer, director and trustee of the Penllergare Valley Woods up until three years ago.

From 2014 Michael worked tirelessly to set up and raise funding for the Tywi Gateway Project and without him we wouldn’t be now restoring the Bishops Park.
