Gethin Jenkins and his son Rhys Jenkins are members of the Stop The Spur campaign.
The Jenkins family farm, Model Farm, has been operational since the 1930s. In fact Rhys is the fourth generation of the family to live and work on the farm.
Among the many other reasons why the Vale rail spur proposal is a bad idea, it would build on a large section of the farm and render it completely unviable as a business.
We have good reasons to think that the driving force behind the rail spur proposal is not primarily the airport but agendas on the part of the landowners and developers.
