Robin Millar was born and raised in Bangor, north Wales where his father was chairman of the old Conwy Conservative Association. His first experience with politics was with former Conwy MP Wyn Roberts on his successful “Win with Wyn!” campaign during the 1974 general election.
Robin went to Ysgol Friars School before graduating in engineering from Manchester University.
He moved to Suffolk to support his wife’s work as a leading equine veterinary nurse. While living there he worked in Cambridge, Russia, the Netherlands and USA as an engineer and businessman before working on social policy, health care and public sector reforms.
He also developed an interest there in community work and local politics. He was Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member on two councils, started an assisted reading programme in local schools and co-founded a small charity investing in young people.
He was elected as Member of Parliament for Aberconwy in December 2019 and in addition to working on constituency issues he supports groups promoting outdoor learning, a stronger UK, better responses to poverty and children's diseases.
Robin takes part in triathlons, trail running and together with his wife they enjoy walking their dogs. He is occasionally called on to play for the Parliamentary XI football team but has yet to win a game with them!
Robin said: "My story is very familiar to many young people in North Wales - leaving for an education, a job and to build a career. It doesn't have be this way. I'm determined to see North Wales leveled up - preserving its terrific culture, environment and heritage but with better connections, a stronger economy and more skilled jobs; the kind of opportunities that come with being part of a strong, global UK."
