Originally from Liverpool, I moved to Silkstone Common 25 years ago with my husband and two children. Derek and I have lived in the ‘village’ ever since. Our two young daughters grown up, and flown the nest, now having children of their own. This is my second time on the Parish Council, having previously left due to family commitments. I work full time for Berneslai Homes in Barnsley. I hope to use my experience of working within the community engaging with local residents to the advantage of the residents of Silkstone Parish.

With a maximum of 9 Councillors on the Council this means the workload can be shared. Councillors who have recently joined the Council will have fewer responsibilities than those who have served the Council for a number of years until they become familiar with how the Parish Council and its Committees work.

All Members of the Council are required to complete a Register of Interests under the Localism Act 2011, the form is the Notification to the Monitoring Officer of Barnsley MBC of any disclosable pecuniary interests to be entered on the Register of Members' Interests.
