Parish Council Staff
Katrina Baker - Clerk to the Council
Hi, I am Katrina.
I am the Clerk to Hollinswood & Randlay Parish Council
and have been here for 10 years. Prior
to coming here, I worked as PA to the Mayor and Members at Telford & Wrekin
Council and I am also clerk to two smaller Parishes in the Borough.
I have six O Levels and other Local Council
Qualifications. I am a Member of the
Institute of Qualified Private Secretaries and a qualified Member of the
Institute of Local Council Management.
I have recently attained the qualification as a CILCA
Trainer, so I am able to assist and mentor other new clerks as they join this
In 2006 I was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday
Honours. This was an extremely proud
moment for me, as it was for services to the community.
I live at Waters Upton, in the northern part of the Borough
and I enjoy spending time walking and fund-raising. My main hobby, however, is my work. I enjoy my job, I like working with my
colleagues and I get a lot of pleasure from serving the communities within our
Together, we achieve so much and we organise community
events which local people love to come to.
My job is very rewarding and satisfying.
At Hollinswood & Randlay Parish Council we get things
done – we are a can-do Council and have helped and supported many local people
and will continue to do so.

Rose David - Finance Manager
Hi, I am Rose.
I have worked for Hollinswood & Randlay Parish for over
10 years and have progressed to the position of Finance Manager. I have
responsibility for all aspects of the financial management of the Council and
work with the Clerk to ensure that there are strict audit trails for all our
work. I have always enjoying working in a financial world and had my own
accounting consultancy business at home before moving to Telford. I do
not live in the Parish but am eligible to work from home – which has advantages
for myself and the Parish Council. I enjoy the challenge of education and
have achieved excellent grades in all my studies. I am AAT qualified and
am currently training for payroll and employment law.
I have over 45 years of experience in accountancy and have,
over those years, established efficient and effective working regimes, which
have the full support of the Parish Council.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my dogs and
attending a local Writer’s Group. Recently I published my second book of
Whilst I can be a team player, I am used to working on my
own. The ability to have a work from home agreement is both support of me
as an individual and has benefits for the council. I usually attend the
community events hosted by the Parish Council.
Glyn Johnson - Parish Warden
Hi, I am Glyn
I have worked for Hollinswood & Randlay Parish Council
for around 6 years. Before working for a local council, my experience was
in a factory and a restaurant. This different type of job really appealed
I have been a caretaker and have more recently been
appointed as the Parish Warden. This role means that I manage the
community buildings and allotments and I really enjoy working with the
I have lived in Hollinswood nearly all of my life and gained
my qualifications locally. Since being employed by the Parish Council I
have been supported in undertaking additional training. I have
qualificaitons in health & safety, good hygiene, ladder training and in the
use of the defibrillator. I am also a qualified first aider and PAT
(portable appliance tester). I also represented the Parish Council on a
specialist course for First Aid outside – this is particularly useful for our
work within Randlay Valley.
I am a team player, but also used to working on my own
initiative. I very much enjoy working with the Councillors and
Colleagues, especially when the parish Council hosts community events.
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, radio cars, carpentry and
tracing my family tree.
Liam Seabury - Parish Assistant
Hi I am Liam.
I am a member of the team at Hollinswood & Randlay
parish and I first joined as an apprentice through the TWC scheme when I joined
as an Environmental Operative. I have now been with the Council for 2 ½ years
and although I do not live in the Parish, I care very much about the areas
within the parish boundary and I am always on the lookout for jobs that need
doing to keep the area clean and tidy.
I studied for GCSEs at college and previously undertook a motor
vehicle course. Since my appointment to the Parish Council I have
attended numerous training courses and am now qualified in the use of mowers,
strimmers and leaf blowers. I am also a qualified First Aider and have
knowledge of the use of the defibrillator out in the community.
In my spare time, I enjoy football and going to the gym –
keeping fit is important to me.
I enjoy working at the parish council we are a family team,
helping each other and work together to help and support the community.

Jackie Welch - Parish Assistant
Hi, I am Jackie.
I am part of the team at Hollinswood & Randlay Parish
Council. I have worked here for over 12
years and I really enjoy my job. I have
worked for other Councils before this one and I have a lot of experience. Whilst I do not live in the Parish, I am only
a short distance away and I do know a lot of local people in the area.
Whilst working for the Parish Council I have gone to a lot
of training courses. I am a trained
first aider and I have passed the health & safety and food hygiene qualifications.
In my spare time I like to read and walk. I also enjoy socialising. I like helping at the Parish Council events –
we work as a team and look after the people who attend. I am a team- player, but I also work on my
own. The Parish Council organises a lot
of community events and they are enjoyed by everyone who attends them.
Stuart Fisher - Administrator / Receptionist
Hi, I am Stuart.
I joined the Parish Council in June 2014. My
job description would lead you to believe that I am an Administrator and
Receptionist, but my role is much more than that. My previous employments
gave me a wide range of skills, the most useful I have found in this role, is
the ability to deal with people.
On a daily
basis, I communicate with Councillors, community leaders, colleagues,
volunteers and the public – my life skills certainly help me in a variety of
different situations. I am educated to A Level and have attended many
training courses over the years. However, the training I find most useful
is hands-on – learning as I go. An example of this is the creation of the
Parish Council website. I hope you have taken a look at it recently.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my
family, walking, reading and eating out. We also like travelling and
joining the Parish Council I have been surprised at the wide range of roles
that are undertaken by this organisation and our small team of staff work
together to support the community at every opportunity. Working with the
community for the community and being able to make a difference in the
community where I live is very worthwhile and rewarding.
