  • Barbara Vaterlaws



    I have a long family connection with the Co-op. My background is in music (LRAM, B.Mus); I have held various teaching and administrative posts at home and abroad (Malaysia and Papua New Guinea). I currently work self-employed in design and print. My aspirations for the Co-op are that we should provide the very best service to our members and customers, acknowledging the vital importance of all aspects of our values and principles. For relaxation, I play in a brass band and enjoy country walking, theatre and concerts.

    I live in Newborough on the beautiful Ynys Môn. My job is as an Agricultural Researcher and I fully endorse our continued support for British produce. My involvement with the co-operative movement began over 30 years ago when I worked, within the food industry, for the Co-operative Wholesale Society (CWS). I was elected by members in 2015 to the Members' Council.

    I am delighted to represent Wales members and staff on the Members' Council, because I’m passionate about helping to make life in Wales better for all. Do get in touch because I’m keen to advocate grassroots feelings to Council.

    I bring extensive board level and trustee experience for this role and I’m particularly keen to support the Co-op’s environmental and ethical initiatives. I live in Swansea and enjoy walking the Wales coast path.
