The Deputy Mayor of Normanton

Normanton Town Mayor

Councillor Julie Medford was born at the local hospital and has lived in Normanton all her life apart from one year when she was supported by local churches to help the homeless on the streets of London.

Julie worked at Castleford Hospital on leaving school and also enjoyed time in the local sugar factory, chippy and as a lollipop lady before settling down to a thirty-year career with Citizens Advice. In recent years, Julie left Citizens Advice to become involved in politics, seeing this as a way to improve the lives of local people, and is now a District Councillor for the Normanton Ward.

Julie was a voluntary youth worker for many years, a school governor, a PTA chair and supports many of our local charities, including The Well Project and the Normanton School Uniform Exchange.

Julie spends her spare time gardening with other members of her family and is looking forward to supporting the Mayor, Councillor Fiona Marchant, during her year in office.
