…a little bit about our speakers…


ALAN BURGE – Minnie Pallister

Alun first came across Minnie Pallister forty years ago when researching the labour movement in South Wales. Two years ago he put aside the history of the co-operative movement on which he was working to dedicate himself to finding out more about Minnie which has taken him far and wide including Bexhill, Welwyn Garden City and Almondbury.

Alun lived and worked in Latin America for years and then worked for 10 years in the Department of Social Justice of the Welsh Government.


DAVID LLEWELLYN – Marie Stopes  

Dr David Llewellyn is a keen and experienced family and local historian, particularly with regard to Abertillery, where he was born and bred. An academic research molecular biologist by training and former profession, he is now involved professionally in landscape and community-based development and research, involving storytelling approaches amongst others. He established the original Abertillery Online website back in 1995 where the Tyleri Tales section featured little-known stories of the area’s heritage, including the Marie Stopes connection.

He is currently heading up the development of the proposed Valleys Landscape Park with the Valleys Taskforce team in Welsh Government.
