My name is Barbara Mason and I have been the Business Manager at Parkfield Nursery since 2002. I am married to Keith and we have our own Agricultural Engineering business. We have one daughter Laura who is married to Nick who is in the Air Force. My qualifications and background are in Business Studies and Human Resources. I spent 15 years working for C&A moving around the country working in stores in Glasgow, York and the Metro Centre. My last position with C&A was Deputy Manager in Carlisle. When C&A closed I came to work with my sister Anne at Parkfield to help deal with the mountains of paperwork that it takes to run a busy, successful children's nursery. In my spare time I enjoy looking after our two German Shepherds, Molly and Sky. We are fortunate to live in the country just outside the village of Wreay and I enjoy growing vegetables and fruit in our garden. I enjoy being part of the team at Parkfield providing support for my colleagues, accessing training and balancing the books.
