Lancashire Life - - Lancashire Heroes -

Al­though she was born in Lon­don and raised in New York, Mar­cia Rei­d­fother­ing­ham de­serves her place on our list for her achieve­ments in the 20 years since she re-lo­cated to Bramp­ton. For­merly a men­tal health ad­min­is­tra­tor and psy­chol­o­gist in Bos­ton, she moved to North West Eng­land to marry a Carlisle den­tist in the late 1990s and has served as a mag­is­trate since 2001. In March she be­came the first black High Sher­iff of Cum­bria, and only the third black High Sher­iff ever in the UK.
