Jonny Mayner – Secretary
Jonny has worked in the private sector since 2000, in roles as varied as bookselling, marketing, accounting and lawyering. He is keen to ensure that the whole community in Sutton Coldfield benefits from the public library service in the town. “For me it’s not just about the books. It’s about the opportunities provided by a place dedicated to satisfying curiosity, whether for study or leisure. It’s about breathing space for the mind, more important in today’s busy world than ever.”
Jenny Wilkinson – Treasurer
As a parent and Sutton resident, Jenny sees the important role that libraries play in the heart our community. Beyond their educational and cultural role, libraries are places where individuals gather to explore, interact, and imagine. Upon hearing of the plans to close Sutton Coldfield library, Jenny took immediate action in kick-starting a community campaign which became The Library Lobby and subsequently FOLIO. Outside of community activism, with her background as a Chartered Accountant she brings financial acumen to the team.

Sutton Coldfield has been John’s home for over 45 years and he is committed to making it an ever better place to live and work. John brings extensive business acumen to FOLIO’s Board of Trustees.
