Mr B Waddell

Born and bred in Glasgow, I gained a BA in Business and Administration from the University of Strathclyde in 1976 and then I successfully completed my PGCE at Jordanhill College of Education, Glasgow. In 1977 I joined the Burnley Building Society in Glasgow as a cashier in 1981 I moved down to Didsbury, Manchester as branch manager. In 1982, the Burnley BS then merged with the Provincial BS to form the National and Provincial BS and I worked for the “N&P” in Didsbury, Ashton-under-Lyne, Oldham and finally Rochdale before, at long last, taking up a class teaching post at Warmbrook Junior school in January 1981. I am happy to say that I never escaped Chapel-en-le Frith ever again!
