                                                           Hidden Faces Community Project Manager 


Cheryl was born and bred in Rotherham, after leaving school she became a seamstress in a curtain factory.  

Aged 20 she embarked in a career in the Army which changed her life for the better, joining the Women’s Royal Army Corp (WRAC) in 1988, until April 1992. The WRAC was disbanded and its remaining members transferred to the Corps they served with, which for her was to be the Royal Logistic Corp until 2010. She served in Bosnia, Afghanistan, Iraq to name a few and earned her Long Service and Good Conduct (LS&GC) medal along with a few others. She was also a Service Steward at the All Lawn Wimbledon Tennis tournament for 18 years. 

Arriving in Civvy Street after 22 years’ service, Cheryl successfully embarked setting up her own Pet Sitting business which lasted for 10 years until the Covid 19 Pandemic unfortunately closed her down in Mar 20, as everyone was at home and there were no holidays. She put her spare time to use by helping those in the community who were shielding or isolated.  

Recently Cheryl was elected as a Parish Councillor in Brinsworth making history as the first female Chairwoman in Brinsworth Parish Council BPC, and looks forward to serving her community. 

Cheryl is keen gardener, as well as an active member of the RBL (Poppy Appeal Organiser) and the WRAC Association. She loves Cycling and has been involved with fundraising to help Veterans and will continue to do so. 

She lives with her Loyal Friend Mikey the KCS and her two feline friend Denis and Archie.  During the 3rd Lockdown, Cheryl was offered the role of Project Leader for Rotherham MCVC Hidden Faces and is looking forward to delivering this amazing project over the next two years.

Andrew Ball

Having grown up in Portsmouth it seemed inevitable that I would my father and join the Navy, however, the Army provided a stronger draw. In Mar 1980 I travelled to Sutton Coldfield for the first stage of my 15 years military service. Having spent over 10years in various locations in BAOR with units belonging to Household Division, Logistics, Medical, RA and Divisional HQ and the remainder around the UK, I always sought tropical postings but sadly the Manning Office thought otherwise. I left in 1995 and settled with a ‘local’ girl in South Yorkshire.

I spent the first few years testing ‘civi-street’ and finding my place in it before getting into IT and extending this into Project Management. Being a ‘people’ person programming held little excitement for me so falling back on 15years in the RAPC/AGC I focussed on the Control aspects of projects, Governance, Planning and Risks, helping Project Managers deliver key programmes around the UK. I now work as an Interim Business Consultant, sharing my view and persuading others of a better way of doing things.

I live in Bramley with Ann my wife, a retired Police Officer and now Criminal Analyst with South Yorkshire Police and have 20 years old Twins. My son is working in the local economy and striving to find his place in the world and my daughter is 2/3 of her way through her Sports Business and Management course at Winchester University and looking to take on the International world of Cycling.


Capt Sam Rodgers REME

Sam had a full service Army career, serving mainly in army aviation and retiring as a Captain in 2005. He then joined the Army Reserve serving at 146 Field Company in Rotherham and latterly at Sheffield University Officer Training Corps. He is a trained and current Unit Welfare Officer who often comes in to contact with serving personnel and veterans within South Yorkshire. In the past this contact encouraged him to become a School Governor as he felt that the unique situation of serving personnel and veterans children were occasionally misunderstood.

Sam’s hobbies include repairing things, camping, walking and military history.
