Mr Keith Whitton
I have lived in a variety of places around England (Leeds, Norfolk, East London, Wolverhampton, and Telford). I am married with a total of four adult children, some of whom I have gained by my second marriage, and now 7 grand-children from 6 months – 9 years old. I attended Wolverhampton Polytechnic as a mature student and after completing an access course gained a degree. Since then I initially worked in environmental improvement and latterly for many years in community development around the West Midlands. I have worked in Telford since 1997 and lived here since 2006. In 2005 I started working in Brookside until 2014 working to get more residents involved in changing the centre, improve the environment of the estate and helping to address anti-social behaviour. I now work for the Parish Council as a Community Projects Officer, and welcome any good ideas people have for helping to improve their places or services. I have previously served as a governor at the Lakeside Academy and Lord Silkin School. I was an active member of the Behaviour Standards Committee and acted as a link with the humanities teaching team. I have always given a priority to helping provide a variety of activities and opportunities for young people and children wherever I work.
Term of Office: 10.03.2023
