Hello & Farewell!

It was with a heavy heart that Harborne Parish Lands said goodbye to Lynda Bending on Friday the 24th January 2014.  After working for the charity for 21 years Lynda decided it was time to retire.  She made the most of her retirement by jetting off to Australia where she wanted to learn to scuba dive!  Her brother lives down-under and his two children got married in March, so Lynda and her family are had two weddings in the sunshine.   

Lynda has been succeeded by Steven Simpson who has taken on the role of Chief Executive.  Steven comes to Harborne Parish Lands from Remploy, where he led their national business development team.  He has previously filled senior roles at Capita Business Services and the Jericho Foundation and he brings a wealth of business, partnership and organisational development experience to the role. 
Steven is a local chap having spent most of his childhood in Bartley Green and his hobbies include music (he plays the piano), literature and vintage cars.  He is the Chair of Governors at Forestdale Primary School in Frankley and has volunteered with a number of local charities and causes. 
On receiving the keys to the charity’s offices Steven said, “ Naturally it is a little bit daunting but everybody has been so welcoming and I have never worked with a more capable team.  I am really looking forward to getting to know our residents over the next few months.”

Dates for grant applications:  Please refer to the Grant Strategy for the dates and details of the priorities that are considered during the grant approval process.
