The outgoing chairman of Ceredigion Community Health Council has described his experience as a ‘rollercoaster two years’.

Cllr Paul Hinge recently became appointed chairman of Hywel Dda CHC and Dr Gabrielle Heathcote has become Ceredigion CHC’s new chairman, with David Thomson as vice-chair.

CHC colleagues thanked Cllr Hinge for his work at Friday’s meeting.

Cllr Hinge said: “It was a roller-coaster for two years. It was interesting, challenging and hopefully productive.

“At times, I must admit, it gave me some sleepless nights, and other times I felt we did some good for the people of the area.”

Dr Heathcote said: “Thank you for your sterling work in the Ceredigion locality.”
