Whatever it is that you think the Council might be able to do to improve life in the Parish, the Councillors are there to help.  Just contact any one of them and explain your ideas or concerns.


These are held in the Village Hall at roughly 2 month intervals, usually on a Wednesday evening.  Notices of each meeting, along with the Agenda, are posted on the Village notice boards and all are welcome to attend.

Minutes of meetings are posted on the Parish Council notice board (outside Herbie's) and on the website.  Click on the Parish Council LABEL for these, and other Council information.


Richard Green (Chairman)


A Parish Councillor since May 2011. A Chartered Accountant, bringing to the Council 30 years’ experience in business, with a sound understanding of finance as well as legal and regulatory issues. My motivation is simple: to work on behalf of fellow villagers to maintain and improve village infrastructure and surroundings and to make our voice heard with NYCC and RDC authorities on local matters which may affect us all. 

Andy Dorman

I have been a Parish Councillor for some 10 years.  I enjoy being part of the first point of contact for villagers whose democratic rights we represent. 

Jessie Garnett


My name is Jessie Garnett. I have lived in Huttons Ambo Village for ten years enjoying and participating in many aspects and activities of village life. I have served on the Parish Council for eighteen months and also on the Parochial Church Council of our village church St. Margaret's for a number of years.

I have two children. My daughter works in America as a Chief Engineer in the aeronautical science industry and my son is a Research Scientist and Lecturer at the University of York.

I retired in 2014 from a long career in health care qualifying as a State Registered Nurse and Midwife at The Harrogate School Of Nursing in the early seventies. During my early career I specialised in Intensive Care Nursing working in specialist units up and down the country. Later I retrained in the Immediate Post Anaesthetic Recovery, Clinical Teaching, Assessing and Mentoring of Student Nurses on placements and Health care Assistants working in the Operating Theatre environment.

Five years ago I joined a weekly ballet class at The Northern Ballet Studios in Leeds, music dance and performing arts being activities I enjoyed prior to the start of my career in the late 60s. I also attend a weekly Pilates class at our neighbouring village of Welburn.

Outdoors I enjoy growing a large variety of vegetables and flowers on my large allotment at California Gardens Castle Howard Road, the plots are owned and let by the Fitzwilliam Estate.

My more leisurely pursuits are relaxing and enjoying the countryside both near and far.

Simon Lealman

I have been part of Huttons Ambo for the whole of my life and a permanent resident for the last 12 years. The village has changed significantly over this time. My ideal is for parishioners to become more active in bringing their views to the Parish Council. This way we can direct our resources towards influencing decisions and dealing with the matters of real concern. This is why we had a consultation and subsequent plan. I care about Huttons Ambo and want to see it thrive, but acting on your behalf.

David Banks

David lives in the village at The Old School, with his wife, Sarah and their three sons. He has been a journalist for 28 years, writing for The Guardian, The Mirror and The Independent and now works for clients all over the UK as a self-employed media law consultant
