“I am the proprietor and editor of The Darton East & West arrow magazine.
“I live in Barnsley and I moved here over 20 years ago, originally arriving to study music at Barugh Green Music College. During this time I left for a few months whilst I explored numerous countries and cultures. I soon returned to Barnsley and again made this my home.
“I started The Darton arrow in December 2006 and initially catered for the districts of Mapplewell & Staincross, of which I delivered to around 2,500 homes.
“Over time I expanded The arrow to include Darton East & West, which is now being delivered to approximately 10,000 homes (Staincross, Mapplewell, Darton, Kexborough, Barugh Green, Dodworth, Haigh, Higham and Woolley Grange), 10 months of the year.
“Within The arrow magazine there are a variety of articles such as community news, what’s on guide and the puzzle page with Sudoku and crosswords, which is a particular favourite.
“I love creating The arrow and I hope to continue the magazine for many years to come.”
