About Us

Until December 2020 the field and Pavilion was managed by the Creigiau Recreation Area Management Committee (CRAMC), made up of members of the sporting clubs and a few volunteers.

In December 2020 the Creigiau Recreation Charity leased the recreation ground from Pentyrch Community Council to enable us to make some much needed development and renovations. We aim to improve the area by improving access both to get to the recreation ground but also to use the changing facilities. Pentyrch Community Council are the ground owners/landlord.

Creigiau Recreation Charity, Charity number 1184914, 36 Parc Castell-y-Mynach, Creigiau, Cardiff CF15 9NW.

Below are the current trustees of the CRC and a little information about them.

Originally from Abingdon, I moved to Wales in 1971, and to Creigiau in 1979 with my wife Jenny.

Now (semi) retired after over 40 years in IT, specialising in Information Assurance, I am a Fellow of the British Computer Society and a company director.

From 1985 to 1992 I worked in Vanuatu where I managed the National Data Processing Department.

I have been involved in many local organisations and I am a passionate sportsman. I am currently captain of Creigiau Cricket Club 3rd XI (which I think had to be formed so that I could continue playing).

Hobbies: Family and mending things.
