Cllr Tony Abbey (Netherhall Ward)
I have lived in Birstall since 1999, and joined the council in February 2008, initially as a Councillor for the Greengate Ward, but now for the Netherhall ward.
I am now retired, but prior to retirement, I worked for 20 years as the IT Manager for a large charity. Previous to that, I spent 27 years working for a large international company, where, after serving an apprenticeship I worked as an engineer developing automated roof support systems for the coal mining industry, and wagon control systems for railway marshaling yards.
I enjoy being on the council, and hope that my experience gained maybe of some benefit to the council and the community.
