We are devastated to announce our Chair, Mark Davies passed away suddenly on Thursday 13 February.

Mark has been involved with BAVO since inception, and was a board member for more than 16 years. He served as Chair for the past eight years and was a great source of support to BAVO and the team.

Mark had been involved in just about everything that happened in the Ogmore Valley at one time or another. He was a stalwart supporter of BAVO and of community action.

He was also a full time volunteer for decades, supported of course by his wife Kath. He was our grass-roots champion and made sure BAVO remained community and member focussed and member-led.

We are heartbroken, and our thoughts are with Kath and his family at this time.

Mark, you will always be a huge loss to us, and you will always be loved and remembered fondly.
