Committee Member

Heather Scoffield, Scottish by birth - and I suspect, by nature.  

Derbyshire is my adopted home where for 30 years I have lived, worked and now retired.

Music, books, history and food are great loves, as is Midge the Border Terrier who owns me.

Committee Member

Joyce Keating, I grew up in Poulton-le Fylde, on the Fylde coast near Blackpool and on leaving school went into the Civil Service. I lived in London after getting married and we spent time in Reading and Fleetwood after having two sons. We moved to South Wingfield in 2003 on retirement. I can easily say this is the best place I have lived. I am presently part of a group within SW History Group recording people’s memories within the village. We hope to make this into a publication that everyone will enjoy.
