Little Aston Councillors

Kelly Harrison – Little Aston
Originally from Great Barr, I have lived in Little Aston for just over five years now with my family. I joined the Parish Council in 2019. I wanted to become a councillor because there is a great sense of community in our area. I feel it is important that we protect that community and help it to grow and develop. There is so much to learn in this new role and I am enjoying getting involved. My background is in journalism, public affairs and communications and I currently work for a small charity in Birmingham that supports people with learning disabilities, mental health conditions and dementia.

Nick Smith – Little Aston & Stonnall
I studied law at West Yorkshire University in 1984 and lived in Tamworth immediately after finishing my degree (LLB). Since then I have lived in Sutton & Streetly prior to moving to Little Aston in 1994 and built Forge Cottage where I currently reside. I know the area very well & cycle the area & walk cross country with my wife on a regular basis. My business life has concentrated upon mailing solutions since 1987, dealing with multi million turnover companies to single person start ups.

Phil Whitehouse (Stonnall & Little Aston Ward). I have lived in Stonnall for almost 30 years and been actively involved in various community initiatives including being Chairman of Stonnall Campaign About Roads (SCAR) since 2005. My career involved working in the Banking Industry for 25 years and latterly in the financial services industry as a Management Consultant.

As a new Parish Councillor, I hope to put this lengthy experience and knowledge to good use and contribute across all areas of the Parish Councils responsibilities. Road safety and people welfare in general are two key areas that I am interested in and to try to make a real difference to the quality of life in the area.

I am also particularly interested in working with the various village groups and to encourage as many residents as possible to be involved in activities that should continue to make the area a great place to live.

Duncan Gleig (Stonnall & Little Aston Ward) I have lived in Stonnall since 2002 – my wife Jayne moved here in 1987. I spent 40 years in HMRC / Inland Revenue, retiring in 2018 as a senior Tax Inspector. The range of jobs during that period, from investigating small traders to international corporates, from leadership and management, from strategy and policy roles, have given me a wealth of experience. The ethos of public service is very important to me; I served 10 years as a governor at The Friary school (including three years as Chair), I volunteer for Blood Bikes (providing a free service to the NHS), I have spent a year marshalling at a covid vaccination centre. Motorbiking is an important relaxation for me; I am currently a ROSPA observer / trainer for advanced riding. I am also Treasurer of Tudor Musical Comedy Society who will be using our Village Hall for rehearsals from January.  

Community is important for all of us – something we saw through the height of the pandemic. Bringing people together and helping each other are a core responsibility for all of us and I hope that being a parish councillor will help me to promote community as well as helping those who need assistance, in whatever way.  I use the Village Hall in Stonnall frequently, most recently as a member of Mint Theatre. Living on Main St I am very aware of traffic issues and the potential for more housing / traffic which will impact across the parish
