Barbara Sutcliffe-Cole

Managing Director

Barbara, long standing music teacher and musical director, heads up The Old Mill project. A wealth of managerial experience and a passion for the performing and creative arts have been invaluable in shaping the structure and vision for The Old Mill Centre. Barbara is keen to draw upon the restorative and life-enhancing properties of the arts, which are intrinsic to the centre’s unique offering.

A keen flautist since her teens, Barbara plays in various amateur orchestras including Stockport Symphony Orchestra, Lancashire Chamber Orchestra, the recently formed Musica Nova and with Buxton Musical Society.

With a busy family life and music career, Barbara has little free time for herself but finds any spare moments are spent in the absorbing pastime of tracing her family tree.

Barbara’s philosophy of life is rooted in a deep and personal Christian faith.
