Civic Mayor Councillor Pat Haith
Councillor Pat Haith was born in Doncaster on the 31st March 1954. She was the eldest daughter of five children of Douglas & Betty Heath. She spent her childhood in Guildford Road, Wheatley. Pat attended Kingfisher Primary School, passed her "11 plus" and went to Doncaster Girls Grammar School. During her teenage years she loved watching Doncaster Rovers and travelled to many away games with her pals. She was also a member of the Girls Venture Corps and her most memorable experience was doing aerobatics in a chipmunk 2-seater aircraft.
When Pat had finished school she went onto Doncaster Technical College to train to be a cook. Her first role was in the Doncaster Borough Council school meals service. She then went on to cook for the firemen at Doncaster Fire Station. She spent many happy years cooking for her big 'family' of firefighters at Doncaster and Edlington. Unfortunately in the 1980's a decision was made that cooks were no longer required. Pat stayed with the fire service doing various roles and ending up in the Personnel department. In 2008 Pat became a Business Support Advisor with SOLACE Enterprises working in Pontefract and has now recently retired.
Pat married Alan in 1973. Their first home was in Grove Avenue off York Road and they now live in Scawsby. Pat and Alan have 3 boys, Darren, Lee & Andrew. They are also proud grandparents to Annabelle born in 2009 and Eliza, born in 2013.
Pat became a Councillor for the Richmond Ward in 2003 which then became part of the Great North Road in 2004. During this period of office she was a member of North Doncaster Development Trust, St Leger Homes Board, vice Chair of a scrutiny panel and Cabinet member for Neighbourhoods, Environment & Housing. Pat was re-elected as Councillor for the Hatfield Ward in 2012. Pat is also a Parish Councillor for Sprotbrough & Cusworth Parish and Brodsworth .
Pat is a school governor at Rosedale Primary and is pleased to announce that Mai Evans has agreed to be her Junior Civic Mayor this year. Well done Mai. I'm sure you will enjoy the experience and have lots of tales to share with your family and class mates.
Pat has decided to support charities that are solely for the benefit of the residents of Doncaster. Her first charity will be Donmentia which was formed early last year by a group of volunteers who offer their time, skills and expertise to help those affected by dementia in Doncaster. Pat’s mother sadly suffered from this illness in the last few years of her life.
Pat would also like to support young people in the Borough so will be raising funds for The Childrens Fund at Doncaster Hospitals.
It is a great honour that the people of Doncaster have bestowed on me and I aim to do my best in representing the town throughout my time as Civic Mayor.
