Elaine Panchal

Hello, I’m Elaine and I am the Circuit Administrator for the Vale of Stour Circuit. I am born and bred in the Black Country, with Brierley Hill Methodist Church being my usual place to worship on a Sunday.

I come from a background of working for a national charity which supports older people in later life. I have managed a Day Care Centre, a mobility centre in the Merry Hill Shopping Centre, and administered Insurance products for the over 50s. I have worked in office administration over many years. I am a people person and love to chat to all people from all walks of life. Being made redundant in February 2018 gave me the opportunity to support my parents at a time of great need, with my father being taken critically ill and passing away.

I have two grown up sons, both living in the local area - Matthew, who is married and a School Teacher, and Daniel, who is currently training to be an Estate Agent. Having been mesmerised by the glitz and glamour of the Ballroom World, I am a very keen Ballroom and Sequence dancer. I have made many friends along the way, and still continue to meet them regularly in the Ballroom. My biggest accomplishment has been having a twirl on the hallowed floor in The Tower Ballroom, Blackpool. I enjoy cooking and entertaining family and friends.
