Carol Harper

Carol moved to Burnt Yates with her family back in 1976 and attended Burnt Yates Primary School. FollowING her time at Burnt Yates Primary School, she then transitioned to Pateley Bridge High School. She briefly lived in neighboUring villages, but returned to Burnt Yates in 2008. She PARTICULARLY enjoys the community spirit that village life brings and has taken an active role in various events over the years.

“It is important that as new people come and enjoy our village they are encouraged to become part of the community as they and their children are the villages future!”

“I have lived in the Parish for 14 years and hopefully being on the Parish Council I can help build a better community. I was born in Kettlesing so I have a great knowledge of the local area.”

Robert Parker

Robert’s family has a long history and connection to the Parish – he is the fourth generation to live on and run the Family Farm, which sits within the Parish.

“I enjoy being a member of the Parish Council and value the opportunity it gives to be involved in safe guarding our community for future generations.”
