On committees, Sue has previously chaired the Civic Amenities Committee, been vice chairman of Outdoor Amenities Committee and now is a member of the Community & Environment Committee. As the Mayor in office, she is also a member of the Memorial Park Working Group.
This is Sue’s fourth time to hold the mayoral chains, having previously being in civic office in 1993/94, 2000/01 and 2006/07. Her consort Ed Wallace is her son and a lifelong resident of Coleshill, heavily involved in Scouting in the area.
