Meet the staff team at Aberdulais

Our small but dedicated band are waiting to welcome you. We think Aberdulais is a very special place. We hope you do too.

    Leigh Freeman

    Jane's our shop manager and the longest-serving member of the Aberdulais team - 15 years and counting. She's a local girl too, so she knows more than most about how the place has changed over the years.  'It's almost like welcoming people to my home,' she says.

    Georgina Snook

    Georgina's our property ranger so you're most likely to find her out and about around the place in her overalls. She'll be planting something or painting something, whatever it takes to keep Aberdulais looking its best.

    Mandy's also on the visitor services team. As well as meeting and greeting, she helps with our membership and volunteer recruitment.

    Paul Beckett

    Paul Beckett

    Seldom seen but often noticed, Paul is up with the lark, mop in hand, to ensure everything at Aberdulais is spick and span in time for your arrival.  And apart from keeping the place clean, he helps out with our vital conservation and maintenance.
