Mr Chris Elmore MP
I was born and bred in South Wales. I live in Pencoed with my fiancé . I studied History at Cardiff Metropolitan University, but before that I trained as a butcher. I've worked in many different roles, including Further Education, office management and before being elected as the MP for Ogmore I was a full time County Councillor and Cabinet Member leading on Education and Children's Social Services. In my spare time I enjoy reading, listening to music and spending time with my niece and two nephews.
Since I was first elected, in 2016, I've been proud to represent the people of Ogmore in Parliament. I've been privileged to meet community groups and residents from up and down the constituency. I'm proud to be a patron of the choir and have enjoyed so many of their concerts over the years and I look forward to attending many more.

Natasha John Singer
Natasha John (25) is from the small town of Pencoed, in South Wales. Her parents are hairdresser Natalie and driving instructor Stephen John. She has a brother Corey and a little dog that she loves very much called Jasper. She attended Pencoed Comprehensive School where she passed all 11 GCSE’s and 3 A level subjects.
Natasha’s first job was in the local rugby club, but her latest employment has been working part time at her mother’s hair salon whilst trying to pursue her singing career. Living and working in Pencoed all her life has given Natasha her down to earth easy – going personality, which people love as well as her singing. When she is not singing or working you will find her song writing, or exploring her artistic flare with cake decorating, she has even baked and decorated wedding cakes.
Natasha John is one of the UK’s most talented and versatile singers. Her voice is a soulful sound with a limitless range. Her soprano range comes from having classical vocal training since the age of 16, but her music genre taste is very broad.
Since the age of 16 Natasha has had Classical Vocal training with Louise Ryan. Louise’s student successes include Charlotte Church, Lucie Jones (XFactor, West-End, Eurovision) and Hollywood actor Luke Evans (The Hobbit, Dracula, Girl On The Train, Fast and Furious). Louise helped to discover and develop Natasha’s soprano range, which has vastly expanded her repertoire. Natasha can sing anything from mainstream Pop and acoustic covers, to Classical-Crossover, Musical Theatre, RnB, Sacred and even Opera.
Natasha’s incredible performances and growing fan base have taken her to venues all over the UK. In 2016, Natasha was invited to sing at half time for a Cardiff Blues Rugby Game, in front of 7000 people, in the Arms Park Stadium in Cardiff.
