My name is Sharon Parmley and I am the newest member of the Ashington Town Council Team when I commenced employment as Senior Administration Officer in November 2016.

I have worked in Administration roles for the past 15 years, having previously worked in manufacturing. My first administration post was at County Hall for Northumberland County Council in the Education Department, and my most recent employment was with Action For Children as a Business Support Officer for Ashington Children’s Centre.  The role was wide and varied and I was responsible for admin support to the Centre Manager and the Community Development Team. I also designed marketing material, organised meetings and events and maintained the website and facebook pages. 

I am looking forward to working with the Town Council at this exciting time of regeneration in Ashington and as a resident of Ashington I am pleased to be given the opportunity to make a difference in the community.

In my spare time I am a keen crafter and enjoy card making, crochet and sewing and my more active hobbies include line dancing and walking.
