I was born in Barnsley but lived and worked in different places before settling in Bamford in 1992 with my partner Trevor. I help to run a walking / outdoor activity group and enjoy modern jive dancing. Meeting people and feeling part of a local community can be difficult, perhaps more so in rural areas like Bamford and Thornhill. It is good though to make connections, talk to each other and build on what we have. I'm happy to be part of an organisation that seeks to support that.
