Brian Campbell (Chair)
I was born and brought up in New Zealand where I qualified and worked as civil engineer. I came to the UK in 1972 and continued my civil engineering career with Arup, one of the UK’s leading consulting engineers. I moved with my wife and family to our present house in Spark Bridge in 1987, and until retiring in 2016, worked as a locally based consulting engineer.
I have had an active involvement with the community through being a school governor first at Lowick and then for some years at UVHS. I was also involved in the local tourist industry as a Commercial Member of Cumbria Tourist Board and was on its Board of Directors for three years.
I became a Parish Councillor in 2012 and am pleased to be continuing my involvement with the community as a Parish Councillor.Tel: 01229 861510
Ian Green (Vice Chairman)
I am originally from Barrow-in-Furness, where I lived and worked until my mid thirties. At this point my wife and I made a conscious decision to move to a more rural way of life, and chose the Ulverston area as having a good mix of interesting town and quiet countryside. We have lived at our current house for 23 years and I have really enjoyed the process of getting to know our neighbours and the wider district.
Until my retirement two years ago I worked at a number of outdoor education centres around the shores of Windermere, though always in an estates or grounds maintenance capacity rather than as an instructor. One result of this is that I’m probably happier driving a tractor than any other vehicle.
Retirement brings more opportunities for leisure, and I enjoy cycling, walking and boating around the South Lakes area. I am also a member of The Sealed Knot and spend some of my summer weekends firing a cannon in muddy fields around the country as we re-create battles from the Civil War period.Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Cathy Child (Parish Clerk)
I was appointed ENMO Parish Clerk in July 2019.
I was born in Essex, grew up in South London and have lived most of my adult life in the Bristol area.
My career background has been in Banking and after just over 40 years of service in 2012 I took voluntary early retirement. Since retiring I have undertaken voluntary work with various charities including the National Trust.
My husband had lived in Bardsea during his early teenage years and introduced me to the Ulverston area in 2002. We subsequently visited the area every year. In 2016 we decided to move to the south Lakes and have been busy renovating our ‘New House’.
I enjoy walking in the local area and my other interests are learning the German language and Amateur Dramatics.Email: email@example.com

I moved to Rosside from Lancashire in 1981 after I was married and my husband started work at Vickers Shipbuilding. I then worked at the Education Offices until I left to have a family in 1984.
My two children attended St Mary's RC Primary School before going on to Lancaster and Barrow-in-Furness for their secondary education. In 1994 I started to work for Orcina, a small local engineering company. My job changed as the company expanded and I became their accountant. I retired in September 2012.
I enjoy all things outdoors. I have orienteered for many years as a member of Lakeland Orienteering Club, was a member of Hoad Harriers running club for a number of years pounding the local lanes and I even used to do a few fell races.
As a parish councillor, I look forward to the opportunity to put something back into the community I have lived in for so long and love so much.Tel: 01229 582852
Anthony (Tony) Mayo
I was born and raised in South Buckinghamshire but spent university days in Leeds, where I graduated in Geography. My early knowledge of 'Lake District' was limited to two field courses in the 1960s. However I became 'an off-comer' in 2004, after meeting my now wife on a walking holiday.
We moved to Arrad Foot in 2007 and I retired in 2010 after a career spent in national and international engineering companies in planning and supply chain functions, latterly Network Rail.
I am actively involved with a local walking club, having recently stepped down from being club chairman, am a volunteer at The Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway and with Cumbria Wildlife Trust; my wife and I being the Saturday volunteer team at South Walney.
Summer finds me on Birkrigg 'bashing' back the bracken from the many archaeological and geological treasures on the Common, working with Morecambe Bay Partnership, an activity which this summer extended to Lowick Common. Within the Parish, I support the work of Newlands Furnace Trust and am a member of the Furness U3A Industrial History Group. Thus my external interests are walking, wildlife, transport and things 'historical'.Tel: 01229 861662
I have lived and worked in Cumbria virtually all my life. I loved my childhood, being brought up in the village of Beckermet, near Egremont, and worked as a primary school teacher in the Millom area for 37 years. I love being outdoors and particularly enjoyed aspects of my work that involved engaging children in the environment, especially doing Forest Schools. Another aspect of my work I thoroughly enjoyed was P4C - Philosophy for Children.
In addition to teaching, I worked with the charity Kidsafe UK for several years promoting children’s mental health and safeguarding.
I have two grown up children. I’m studying German. I ran an in house philosophy group, based on the P4C work I’d done with children for 10 years. I walk the fells and have an e-bike, which takes some of the sting out of cycling our hilly terrain! I use public transport whenever I can make that work - love making good use of my bus pass! I came to gardening late in life due to necessity - I have a big garden – but am enjoying a sense of satisfaction from my labours. I have been doing yoga for over 20 years and, more recently Pilates. I sing with a local community group, attend djembe workshops regularly and play the Bodhran. I enjoy holidays in Scotland and exploring other areas of UK – but I love coming home to our wonderful part of the world too!
I am enjoying being a Parish Councillor and getting to know more folk, the community and our immediate environment better.Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have lived in the area since 2011, having moved from Lancashire. I have a long career in Marketing within the construction industry, working with a leading manufacturer of construction products. I hold a Masters degree and qualified as a Chartered Marketer with the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
I became a Parish Councillor in 2022, and enjoying this new challenge, getting to know the local environment and people of the community.Email: email@example.com
We moved to Greenodd in 2020 having lived in Crosthwaite before that for 2 years. What started out as a sabbatical from teaching to study at the University of Cumbria for a year has turned into a permanent move.
I work at the Brathay Trust in Ambleside designing and delivering training for different work-based groups from apprentices to senior executives.
We were made to feel so welcome on our arrival in Greenodd, and enjoy exploring the local area.Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Along with many families, my great grandparents moved to Barrow from various parts of the UK, during the industrialisation and shipbuilding developments. I lived in Barrow with my family and went to Barrow Grammar School until I left for Liverpool aged eighteen. Then I worked in Birmingham before returning to Cumbria.
I gained a MSc in Human Resource Development at Lancaster University and have been a member of the Chartered Institute of People Development since 1991. This has given me a long-standing involvement in helping people to develop in the working environment.
I have spent the majority of my working life as a manager covering a variety of experiences - project management; marketing; planning; operations; information technology; multi-media; people capability; people performance; European and government funding; creating structures for external inspection compliance.
I have lived in Arrad Foot for nearly forty years. I love the area and have made many friends.Email: email@example.com
