Chairman of the council - Biography

Councillor Debbie MerryweatherI have lived and worked in Bassetlaw most of my life with the exception of four years when I lived in Rotherham.

I have been married to Fraser for 18 years, and we have two children, Courtney 16 and Sam 15, both of whom have autism.  They are the most loving and caring children I could ever have hoped for.

I work full time at Bassetlaw Hospital in procurement inventory management, buying all products used in theatres.

This will be my fifth year as a Councillor and every day brings something different. Working with the council and helping people is very satisfying and I hope to be able to continue to do this for many years.

My hobbies are walking our two dogs, going to the cinema and bowling with my family, even though the children beat us every time.

I hope through my role as Chair that I can champion children and adults with special needs as well as to steer a campaign to help people with mental health issues. Mental health is something I feel very strongly about and I hope to reach out and give people someone to listen to, talk to and know they are not on their own. I know this council cares.
