Derrick Griffin lives on Allendale Road in Walmley Village and has since 1968. ‘‘My daughters went to Walmley First and Middle School, during their time there I was chairman of the Parents Association and I then served for one year on the John Wilmott Parent Teacher Association. Since retiring in 1993 I have been secretary/treasurer of my old Regimental Association in Birmingham. I can bring a wealth of experience to this Parish Council to make it a success. This Parish Council needs experienced people to make it work for local residents.’’
Derrick was elected as one of the first Parish Councillors for the Royal Town in May 2016.
