County's new Lord Lieutenant appointed.

A NEW Lord Lieutenant for Gwynedd has been appointed.

Edmund Seymour Bailey succeeds His Honour Huw Morgan Daniel in the post.

Mr Bailey farms on his family's extensive holding in Llanbedr and Dyffryn Ardudwy in South Snowdonia.

He is a director of a tourism business and of a small renewable energy firm.

Each county has a Lord Lieutenant, a local representative of Her Majesty the Queen. The role is non political.

He said:I am deeply honoured to have been appointed as Her Majesty''s representative in Gwynedd and Mon. I intend using this role, amongst other things, to promote a good atmosphere and a spirit of cooperation by encouraging the voluntary activity that is present amongst the business and social life within my Lieutenancy.

Mr Bailey has recently retired after serving for four years as President of the NFU Cymru. He is a member of the Lord Chancellors Agricultural Land Tribunal and was High Sheriff for Gwynedd (2012 to 2013). Before being appointed Lord-Lieutenant, Mr Bailey was a Deputy Lieutenant for Gwynedd.

Lord Lieutenants are appointed by the Queen to serve until they are 75.
