I would like to thank everyone who voted for me in the recent elections, both in the West Ecclesfield Ward (Sheffield City Council) and in Ecclesfield (Ecclesfield Parish Council).
I was particularly disappointed to lose the parish seat. I had held it for 28 years, during which time I learned a great deal about the whole parish area, having served mainly on the finance committee but also occasionally on planning.
I was also a parish council representative on the Chapeltown Baths Board, and am sorry not to be with those colleagues during their final year before their operations switch to the new leisure facility on Packhorse Lane, Mortomley.
I shall continue to be active wherever I can, including as chair of Friends of Ecclesfield Library.
I wish the newly composed parish council all the best .
