Jeff Davies, Chair

Shirley and I have enjoyed living in Chadwick End since 2002 and as a Parish Councillor I look forward to being involved in its future development. The bulk of my working life was spent in the Banking Industry and latterly 13 years as Bursar at Arden School in Knowle. Interests include voluntary work, playing tennis and racketball, gardening and watching my football team, Sheffield Wednesday. We have 2 children Carolyn and James who both live locally.

Andrew Taylor, Vice Chair

I moved to Chadwick End in January 2020 and live with my wife Fionuala and her two adult sons. We have all enjoyed the move here and really value the village life hence why I am keen to get involved with the Parish Council to support and give something back to the community. I hope to live here for many years and look forward to being an active member of the council. By profession I work in Banking and am also a Chartered Director. 

Duncan Mathison, Councillor

I moved to the village in 2011.  My wife and I both grew up in Solihull and having lived in a few other places are happily settled back in this area.  We came here to be able to enjoy a little more space, fresh air and peace and quiet.  I work full-time in a Business Planning role but am happy to use a bit of my spare time to try and have a positive impact on our community, and I gain a lot personally through meeting other volunteers.

Karen Bell, Councillor

We moved to Chadwick End from nearby Knowle and Dorridge in early 2020, having fallen in love with the area through walking, running and visits to the Orange Tree (all of which we continue to enjoy now that we’re here!). A qualified nurse, I now work in Medical Communications/Digital Healthcare, and have 2 grown-up children and a new baby grandson.  I’m also a keen gardener, enjoying experimenting with plants that will grow in our heavy clay soil and looking forward to working with some more volunteers to develop our Village Hall garden.

Kerry Finlayson, Parish Clerk

I joined the Parish Council in November 2018. I live in Coventry with my 3 teenage children, Romy, Freddie & Alfie. I undertake this role in addition to my main job as cabin crew for British Airways.
