Born into a family of six children (with 4 brothers and a sister) of Worsbrough families on both sides going back three generations. My maiden name was Findlow and my mothers name was Clarkson. Attended White Cross secondary  school 1954 to 1958.

N Corah. S R Gents and as a Housing Warden.

Took a active role in the Rowntree Community Cares project that identified that the priority  need for Worsbrough was support for families with children under 5 years old. This led to the Barnsley Healthy Living project. Following this we were successful  with big lottery Home Start bid. Obtaining £125 000 over three years to train volunteers so that they could support local families .

I am currently Vice chair of Home Start. Also I have been a governor of Ward Green school for 6 years and have just started another three years term. In addition I have served for a good number of years as a management member at the Worsbrough Sports & Development Club, known locally as the Welfare.  

As part of my Council responsibilities I serve on the Children's Scrutiny Commission, which looks into all aspects of children's services (i.e. children in care, education and youth provision). I am a member of the Planning board. I also attend the Berneslie Homes meetings regarding: Decent Homes programs, Regeneration projects and the estate walk abouts with  housing officers. In addition to all of the above I attend as many Community Safety meetings as possible.
