Betty Clayton (Chair)
I have been involved with St Leger homes from the consultation to become an ALMO serving on the West Board as Chair in the latter months, been co-opted to the board on two occasions and was Chair of TRIP in the beginning and again last year. I have always had a job in the public sector in one way or another. I served as Chair of Don Valley School PTA whilst my children attended, was Vice Chair of Bentley Safety Group initiated by South Yorkshire Police. My personal hobbies are artistic; I enjoy crocheting, knitting and embroidery and work voluntary for Save the Children.
Myself and my wife have been residents of the Intake Flats for 17 years and have seen many changes in our community I have had a varied employment history that mostly involved driving, bus driver inspector, vehicle parts delivery driver, vehicle delivery and collection driver and inspector and being involved in the introduction of the first PDA inspection units in one company for calculating the repair costs for vehicle repairs for ex lease vehicles, and now that I am retired it is time that I used the peoples experience I have gained to help our St Leger Homes community.

I retired from a busy life working for the countryside service in Sandall Beat wood and organising the Doncaster Country Fair. Before that I was a youth worker and a SNA at Campsmount School.
My wife and I got married in 2013, we had both lost our partners, my wife is Latvian and works locally in Thorne. I've had a varied career, when I left Grammar school in my home town of Portsmouth I was determined to be an entertainer, and I pursued that path, both amateur and professionally for over 40 years. I joined the R.A.F. in 1968 and on leaving I moved to Yorkshire. I ran my own business for a few years, and retired as a call centre team leader working for Staples in Kirk Sandall. We moved into a bungalow in Stainforth last year, and love the area we live in. I'm hoping that some of the life skills I have acquired over the years will help me to contribute to the TRIP team.
