Hi. Welcome to my page on the Barrow Council website. I am one of your Labour Councillors for Ormsgill along with Lovinia Williams and Bill McEwan. Our contact details are all on here but you can also get in touch with us through our Facebook site ‘Ormsgill Labour Councillors’.
For the last 25 years I have worked for Cumbria County Council. My job title changed every couple of years but I basically worked with community groups, sports clubs and charities. I am proud to have been involved in setting up projects like Sure Start, Barrow CVS and Barrow Sports Council which have had an ongoing benefit to our community as well as helping to improve numerous sports and community facilities.
Since taking voluntary redundancy from the County Council in 2014, due mainly to ill health, I now work a few hours a week for Barrow Sports Council.
When I finished working for the County Council, I wanted to carry on supporting my community in some way. I was born in Pine Road and went to Ormsgill School so I was really pleased to have a chance to become a Councillor for Ormsgill. The Council obviously doesn’t have unlimited resources to do everything we would like but I hope I can make a difference. Myself, Lovinia and Bill are happy to work with anyone to make Ormsgill a better place for our community.
