I have been a councillor for Darnall Ward for 10 years and I have lived here most of my life.  I have enjoyed working in all areas of the Ward and meeting local people. 


Having worked in community development and regeneration, I understand how councillors can work with different organisations to support residents to get things done and solve local problems. I have also focused on helping individuals with their particular problems.

I have been a member of the Labour Party since 1992 and represented Darnall Ward on the Council since 2003 and feel very privileged to be a candidate again in the 2016 local elections. I came to live in Sheffield in 1981 and worked as a nurse in mental health services in Rotherham. Since my election in 2003 I have promoted youth activities and took an active part in the regeneration of our local parks. Alongside Clive Betts MP I campaigned to ensure we had a new health centre in Darnall and was able to ensure we had accident prevention schemes on our local road.


I have worked with the local Taras and other community organisations to achieve their ambitions for their neighbourhood and local people. I chair a number of local groups including the Darnall Environment Group which works with the large and small organisations to improve our neighbourhoods. I have good relationships within the Ward. I believe that this is essential in these difficult times and believe we have to work together at a local level in order to make best use of the resources still available. My priorities for Darnall remain, health, young people, the environment, training and employment.
