After working for a few years as a lecturer in further education (latterly at Rother Valley College, Dinnington) I left work to have my family. When my boys were at school I was elected to the Council and served from 1978-83 and 1991-93.


My employment was mostly related to the coal industry. Until 1999 I was an employment consultant in personal injury litigation, dealing mainly with the cases of miners and ex miners. I gave evidence in the High Court for the test cases for miners with Vibration White Finger. At this time many people in the profession were made redundant because of changes to the judicial system.

Not long after this, I developed cataracts on both eyes, which developed rapidly. I was unable to work during this time and after two operations to remove the cataracts I was elected to the Council again in 2006.


I am very pleased to be representing my community and will always seek to do the best I can for residents within my Ward.



Working with you to help build communities that we can all take pride in has always been a priority for the Council.

We value the contributions that people make within their local area, through volunteering and getting involved in decision making, to really make a difference for everyone who lives there. By building on the work we've already done together we can continue to find new ways to meet the challenges facing Rotherham.
