David Lewis

Role: Trustee

I joined the Merchant Navy at 21, worked overseas for a decade, including Libya, Bahrain and Cyprus.  I returned to the UK with my wife and we started a family, a wonderful Daughter and Son, whilst running a Driving School.  Later I worked offshore in the North Sea and Irish Sea.  At this time I studied with the Open University and graduated after 6 years with a BSc (Hons).
Being retired allowed me to pursue my twin loves of history and my home city by joining the team at Copper Jack as a volunteer commentator, a task I truly enjoy.

Elaine Davies

Role: Secretary

My volunteering days on Copper Jack started the month after the new boat was delivered in May
2014. Copper Jack hosts a variety of events, my Silver Wedding celebration included and it has been
my pleasure to serve the numerous guests who wish to know more about the history of the Tawe
including the educational trips for schools, various interest group including the Ramblers and Senior
Citizen groups along with dramatic presentations, fund raising events, etc. Since 2018 I have been a
Trustee and have the enviable task of taking minutes at our monthly meetings!
