Simon Ward has lived in Four Oaks for 16 years and raised his family here. ‘‘I am an accountant by training and am a partner in my own corporate finance practice, advising growing businesses. Outside work and family I am a keen runner and a member of the finance committee of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. I see the new council as a great opportunity for our local voice to be heard. Making local services relevant and efficient is a huge responsibility that I will fight to address.’’
Simon was elected as one of the first Parish Councillors for the Royal Town in May 2016.
