Biography of current Mayor

Mayor Underhill

Angela has lived in the Walsall borough since 1965, when her family moved into Willenhall to keep a pub. She met John, her husband, some time later and they have been married for over 40 years. John has lived in Bentley all of his life. They have children and grandchildren.

Angela has been a Councillor since 1996 and now represents the ward in which she lives Bentley and Darlaston North. Prior to becoming a Councillor she worked as a Manager in industry for many years.

Angela and John were involved with Amateur Dramatics and Operatics, Angela directing and acting, John doing set and lighting design. However as Angela became more involved with politics and then the council they found that they had less time to do this, although they do go to the theatre as much as possible.

Angela has been a govenor at Jane Lane Special School for many years and is really proud of the young people who attend the school and the staff who work with them especially with the brilliant OFSTED they received last year.

She is involved with the Friends of Darlaston Town Hall and is determined to see the Town hall being used as often as possible by local people. Together with her fellow Councillors she is a member of a group who put on several events throughout the year encouraging local people and children to enjoy themselves.

They both love travelling and she and John have visited many different countries, often with her family.
