CHAIRMAN – Arthur Ratcliff

I have lived in Neen Savage my whole life. I was born and brought up at Detton Hall Farm, and farmed there for 30 years, before moving up to Shunesley Farm 10 years ago where four generations of our family now live. I am keen to help Neen Savage remain a caring and inclusive community, and a great place to live and work.

Olwen Sales

I have lived at Reaside in Neen Savage since 2003, along with my mother-in-law, husband and two children. Together with my husband we run an international travel business from Reaside. I love to ride and walk in our beautiful countryside and am committed to retaining the peaceful and essentially rural nature of Neen Savage, while supporting appropriate development. I believe regular and full communication is key and maintain the Parish Council Facebook page and Website.
