Cllr. Ron Baker - 0151 290 1011
Chair - Melling Parish Council
Born in Liverpool in 1946, he is married to Elaine and they have 3 children plus 6 grandchildren. They moved into the village in 1983 from Waterloo for a number reasons: So that Elaine could be closer to her Nan Skeaping, who had lived in the village since 1936, back in the days when Rainbow Drive, Stuart Road etc was all farm land, they paid £450 for their house back then. It was a nice area to bring up a family. It was closer to Ron's employers (Littlewoods) in Kirkby.
Ron became a councillor in 2001. He thinks it may sound corny but it was to try and improve our village where possible and make it a better place to live in.
Ron is a former Citizen's Advice Bureau advisor and gained a lot of skills and knowledge within that organization.
