Serving the people in the parish of Eckington

Vice Chairman

Vice Chairman

Cllr Jennifer Archer

I grew up in Buckinghamshire and worked both there and in London. It was
my career that caused me to move North to Boots head office in Nottingham as
the company's Training Analyst. As my career progressed, I worked in
personnel, training and education for a broad range of companies, universities
local government and national organisations and this kept me in the North. I
have lived in Eckington with my husband for 39 years. Fortunately, both our professional careers, working in the UK and abroad, enabled us to stay here and both our children went to local Eckington schools before going to university. Some years ago, I decided to work for myself and develop my own company. Whilst I have always tried to participate and support local events and activities, my work as a health education and training specialist often required me to work away. Latterly, having decided to scale back my work activities, I was elected a parish councillor
last summer. I had always said that when any opportunity arose, I would give more time to helping the community which I have enjoyed and benefitted from and where I have made many good friends and colleagues. It has been a steep learning curve in some respects, as the parish council covers several wards which I have had to learn about. I have also needed to find out more about what the parish council does, what it has done in the past and how we can work as a team with the public to ensure our area has a positive and vibrant future.
