Darren Cannan
I've always been curious about what makes a community tick, and that interest has led me to be involved in the life of the neighbourhoods I've lived and worked in since growing up in Ladywood, Birmingham, in the 1980s. I work in the voluntary and communuty sector as a regional manager for a national charity, and I have previous experience of working in local newspapers and radio. I've lived, studied and worked in parts of Merseyside, Greater Manchester and the West Midlands on the way. I enjoy swimming, football and cricket as well as writing/listening to poetry. Birmingham City Football Club is in my DNA, for better or for (mostly) worse. I'm a dad, a husband and a poor disciple of DIY. Thanks for dropping by.
