Each county in the West Mercia force area has its own dedicated Community Ambassador who represents the Commissioner.

These individuals act as additional ‘eyes and ears’ for John and ensure community concerns and issues are fed back and dealt with accordingly.

Your ambassadors for North and South Worcestershire are Margaret Sherrey and Phil Grove. Margaret represents the north (Bromsgrove, Redditch and the Wyre Forest) and Phil represents the south (Wychavon, Malvern and Worcester).

If you want to talk to Margaret or Phil, they can be contacted in the following ways:
