The Mayor of Redditch

Councillor – Ann Isherwood

I am Ann Isherwood the newly elected Mayor for Redditch Borough Council, I am also the elected member for Church Hill.

Born to an Irish mother and English father I have a great love of my heritage.  I am originally from Birmingham, but I have lived in Redditch since 1982.  My husband Paul and I have 5 daughters, Rachel, Erin, Holly, Jordan and Hannah.  We also have 3 grandchildren Ford, Eve and Liberty…

Whilst my children were small, I volunteered for Charitable organisations such as Victim support and the Royal British Legion of which I am a member. I spent many years working in the third sector as a fundraiser and event organiser in Birmingham and Stourbridge.

I have worked in Redditch both in the public and private sectors. As well as being self-employed.

I currently work for the Heart of Worcestershire College here in Redditch and it is an absolute pleasure to work with young people supporting them in their future careers.  The youth of Redditch are tomorrows Employees, Employers and Leaders they need our support.

It is indeed a privilege and honor to serve this town as your Mayor. It is my intention to represent Redditch to the best of my ability and will strive to promote our town, our council, our businesses and, most of all, the wonderful people of this great town of ours.

 Redditch is a beautiful place to live and a great place for families. We are often called a new town but should also remember the rich heritage of this town of which I am fiercely proud of.

Being appointed Mayor is the highest accolade that this town can bestow upon a Councillor. I am extremely proud to be given the opportunity to serve the communities of Redditch during my Mayoral year of 2022 / 2023.
