Councillor Alison Botten

Email: cllr.botten@gmail.com

Role(s): Human Resources; Defibrillator Facilitator; Christmas Lighting Facilitator; Social Media; ERNLLCA representative

I am originally from Kent where I worked in administration and IT. I moved to Garton on the Wolds in 1990 and soon after set up an art and framing business in Driffield. I now run our holiday cottages at Church Farm in the village, welcoming visitors from far and wide to our lovely part of Yorkshire. I am passionate about the Yorkshire Wolds and all the area has to offer. I joined the parish council in June 2018 wishing to make a contribution to village life.

Councillor Daniel Wilson (Chairman)

Email: wilson.gartonpc@gmail.com

Role(s): Keeper of the Flags; ERNLLCA representative; Finance

 moved to Garton on the Wolds with my family in 2016. Although we are quite new to the village, my family has historic links to the Wolds area and we instantly felt at home here. We love living in Garton and as a family we like to explore the Wolds and go to the seaside for walks along the coast. I have been a parish councillor since 2017 and enjoy taking part in village life. I am a solicitor but in my spare time I like to spend time with my family, doing DIY and playing the guitar.

Councillor Michael Benton-Rose

Role(s): Utilities Facilitator

I am married and have lived in Garton on the Wolds for 31 years.

I am now retired (but busier than ever) after 42 years' service as a BT Telecommunications Engineer.  

My family is grown up but both children attended Garton Primary School. I have joined the Parish Council to hopefully help and support the local village community. Interests and pastimes mostly include motor vehicles, both classic and new, being part of a small team (Backfire Events) organising and running motoring events and meetings throughout East Yorkshire.

Role(s): Village Appearance Facilitator

Hello, I'm Stuart Dixon, 65 years old. I live in Garton on the Wolds with my wife Liz and Son Andrew. We've lived in the village for nearly 3 years. I used to work as a mechanic then a delivery driver, but a couple of falls left me disabled. I try to keep as active as I can by gardening, walking my dog and small DIY tasks.

Councillor Claire Cawkwell

Email: Clairecawkwell0@gmail.com

I have lived in Garton-on-the-Wolds since 2021 when we moved back to the East Riding to be closer to family following a few years living in Devon and Leeds. I live here with my son and husband and we love getting out into the Wolds and to the coast to enjoy lots of walks and fun outdoors.

I was keen to get involved with the parish council to be more active in the local community.

I work as a project manager in a national charity and have a background in community development and advice work.

I have an interest in local history and archaeology which I studied at university and I love reading.
