During 2006-2016, i served as an elected branch communications officer and branch steward for the trade union UNISON Local Government Branch in Darlington. Although i am no longer an eligible member, (as i no longer work for the local authority and therefore cannot stand as officer or steward), i do however continue to maintain the branch website, domain and hosting for the Darlington branch and also a second branch within the region.
