Deborah Darby

Deputy Chair Planning & Transport, Deputy Chair Recreation

I moved to Melton 3 yrs ago having lived in the north of England all my life. I attended school and college in Rochdale and have an NVQ in catering & restaurant management.

Whilst my children were growing up I worked for Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council as a support worker/Carer and then gained my degree from Salford University in Occupational Therapy. I worked for the Council for 25 years, predominantly with people with disabilities and vulnerable adults.

My career and family life have provided me with the skills and knowledge to help me in my new role on Melton Parish Council. I hope to learn more about the village and support its residents in an ethical and productive way.
