Parish Councillors

Portrait of Councillor Adair

Councillor Terry Adair (Chairman)

I moved into Treeton in 1985 although no stranger to the village.

My working life was at Fence workshops as an electrician & NUM official until its closure. I then moved to the Cooperative Insurance section. Qualifying as a financial adviser.  I was also elected as a Union official. In 2009 due to run down of the industry, took early retirement.

I took this opportunity by being involved and working for the community. I have been an active Parish Councillor for the last 5 years. I have also been elected as Company Secretary to Rotherfed Charity.

Portrait of Councillor Swift

Councillor John Swift (Vice-Chairman)

Born in Catcliffe I have lived in Treeton since 1964, with my wife and two daughters.

I worked at Treeton Colliery until leaving in 1982.

My main interests are the countryside and environment and my love of walking. Unfortunately, this is being spoilt by 'off road' motorcycles and we must try to curtail this so that people can go out and enjoy the countryside with pleasure.

I am also Chairman of the Board at Aston Academy.

I have been a Parish Councillor since 5 June 1979.

Portrait of  Councillor Cooper


Councillor Gary Cooper

I have been a resident of Treeton for a number of years having relocated from Aston. I had served on the Parish Council there for approx. 10 years so an opportunity to serve on Treeton Parish Council had great appeal.

I retired from my job as an IT Business Analyst working in the public sector and decided to use my skills by becoming involved with a variety of voluntary organisations, for example I have been a Primary School Governor for many years, I am also a Governor representing Rotherham on the Rotherham, Doncaster and South Humberside Mental Health Trust. I also represent the Parish Council on the Treeton Memorial Community Centre and Playing Field Trust.

I enjoy supporting local football and cricket teams and, take an interest in my community and local events.
