I am an active member of the Bournheath community having lived most of my life so far in the Bromsgrove district. I am a keen supporter of the community with a special interest in health and safety issues and the environment and have worked with a cross-section of service providers to progress drainage improvements for our residents. I also represent the district’s parish councils on the Bromsgrove Safety Partnership. In May 2015 I was elected to serve the new district council ward of Perryfields which is complementary to my role as chairman at Bournheath PC.

I have lived in Bournheath for over 40 years, having been brought up in the village at Bumble Hole. I became vice chairman of the Parish Council in May 2017. I am a keen runner, having ran a number of different marathons, and often can be seen in my lycra running around the village.

I have lived in this Woodvale area since 1975 and have been a Bournheath Parish Councillor since May 2007. I have volunteered for the role of parish tree warden for many years and have a particular interest in environmental matters, regularly liaising with the parish Lengthsman and grass cutting contractor and overseeing the planting of spring bulbs and other village enhancement schemes. We are lucky to live in this pleasant country environment yet so close to urban facilities!

Having spent many happy years in the Village (since September 1994), as many others do as a Working Commuter, on retirement in 2010, I decided it was time to put something back into this wonderful village of ours and perhaps use some of my business experiences along the way. When asked to consider becoming a Parish Councillor and being happy to volunteer some spare time I thought this to be a good way of achieving this aim. In the meantime I also became a member of Bournheath Village Community Centre and I am the current Chairman. I engage in a number of activities around the Village and I am prepared to talk and listen to other Villagers.

Carolyn Marshall

Parish Councillor

I have lived in Bournheath for the past eight years but have lived nearby in Catshill and Fairfield for most of my life. I spent my whole career in banking until a few years ago when I took early retirement and now work for just a few hours for the NHS. This gives me some spare time and I can often be seen walking my dogs around the Parish and as I really enjoy living here I’m very happy to do all I can to help keep it an attractive and friendly place to live.

Jayne Warwood

Chairman

Originally from the Black Country, I have lived in Bournheath for over three years and in Bromsgrove for over 20 years. After a long and varied career working jointly across the Dept of Health and NHS, particularly in Mental Health, Public Health and Health Promotion, I now work part time in a local Care Organisation and as well as volunteering at Primrose Hospice, both in the Day Centre and Complementary Therapies Centre.

Being a resident of Bournheath I am pleased to be a member of the parish council where, along with my fellow councillors, I can help to bring about improvements in the parish. I have recently taken on the Parish Footpath Warden role which involves checking on the accessibility of our 6.6km of footpaths in and around the parish that includes a short section of the Monarch’s Way from Mill Lane to Top Road. I am often out and about in the parish and happy to talk!
