My name is Dave Parker, I was elected as Maltby (Rother Valley) Lions President in June 2018. I was born and raised in Thurcroft and attended local infant and junior schools. I attended Maltby Grammar School and on leaving I went to the Sheffield College of Art where I studied to become a Commercial Artist. I later trained as a joiner in Sheffield at the River Don Works and got a City and Guilds qualification. I also worked at Laporte Industries as a Technical Advisor on Chemicals including Safety procedures on spillages until I retired and I am now the owner of a local business, JJL Services, based in Maltby. I have 2 daughters, 1 son and 3 grandchildren.
