Board Chair, Community group and Marketing & Media team.

My family has lived in Church Hill for nearly forty years. Our three sons attended the local schools – Moons Moat and Church Hill Middle. I was a Parent Governor of Moons Moat 1st school for a few years.

It was while I was working at the local Post Office that I really became aware of the friendliness of Church Hill people and also some of the problems people faced on a daily basis.

My hope is that Church Hill Big Local can make a lasting difference in people’s lives and make Church Hill an even better place to live

Board Vice Chair

Chair of Community Group 

Marketing & Media team 

I worked in Church Hill for almost 6 years as part of YMCA Worcestershire.

In 2014, I moved to the area with my children who both attend the local schools.

I joined Big Local to help make a difference. I could see the opportunities we could offer the local community and couldn’t wait to be involved!

I have such a passion for this area and want to help to make it a better place for all of us to live in.

Christopher Thomas

Community Coordinator.

I have been working with various communities of Redditch for 10 years now. During this time, I have worked in various roles and locations, and had the fortune of working with some amazing people on some fantastic projects.

I have worked for Redditch Borough Council’s Anti-Social Behaviour Team, Redditch Partnership’s area of highest need project ‘Winning Winyates’, and REACH CIC, a community focused organisation operating within the east of the town.

Most recently I have been working as a Community Coordinator for Church Hill Big Local Partnership, helping the volunteers focus on the needs of the community and assisting in the delivery of projects to help make Church Hill an even better place to live. I have always been extremely impressed by the dedication of the volunteers and this has led to some great projects being delivered.

In addition to this, I am currently a Governor at a local school and am also delivering a ‘Dads and Lads’ project as part of the Boys 2 Men charity that looks to strengthen the relationships between boys and their father figures.

Roger Hill

Board Treasurer, Green Spaces Group

I was born in Moseley Birmingham and Married to Carole for forty three years and have lived in Redditch for forty of those years.

My working life has been in engineering starting with a 5 year apprenticeship, then through tool making to tool design then to product design within the automotive and aerospace industries.

Of course there have been a few detours on the way, teaching within engineering, Sales and marketing, direct selling and not to mention four years as a borough Councillor in Redditch representing the Church Hill ward.

I am currently a school governor for Moons Moat First School.

I have been very fortunate within my working life in that my work has taken me to many parts of the word, enabling me not only to see countries but to be working within the different cultures.

I am currently still working. Not found the time to retire yet.

Stephen Betteridge

Chair Green Spaces Group

I moved to Redditch 23 years ago and in that time my wife Julia and I have had two boys Adam and Daniel.

I run a landscaping business, and this helped enormously when I was invited to run the Green Spaces team.  We have had a busy couple of years from planting 3/4 of a tonne of Daffodils on Bomford Hill, planting all around Church Hill Centre and revamping the Scouts courtyard.

I’m looking forward to the future especially with what with what we have planned over the next few months.

One of the many bonuses is that I get to meet some great people who have helped make it all happen. I really appreciate people who give up their own time volunteer and help to make our community a better, colourful wildlife-friendly place to live. 😀
