Picture of Meg Munn, MPI was born in 1959 in central Sheffield, moving into the Constituency when I was 3 years old. I went to Mundella Primary School and Rowlinson Comprehensive School. I attended York and Nottingham Universities, and later studied with the Open University.

I joined the Labour Party when I was 15 years old, becoming a City Councillor in Nottingham for the period 1987 – 91. I also joined the Co-operative Party and am a Labour and Co-operative Member of Parliament.

A trained social worker I worked in Berkshire, Nottinghamshire, Barnsley, Wakefield and York. I was a social worker for a number of years and finished as Assistant Director for Children's Services at the City of York Council.

I speak fluent French and German and conversational Italian and Spanish. I am a member of the Methodist Church; I’m married to Dennis and live with him and our three cats.
