Vice Chair

Barney Byfield

I have lived in Kirk Smeaton since 1999 with my wife, Sarah, and raised our family here.

We are blessed to be part of such a friendly and caring community, with beautiful scenery and Brockadale on our doorstep plus a thriving Post Office and pub. There is a wonderful community feel which I believe is unique to this special village.

I became a Counsillor in May 2021, because I want to support and give back to the community, and preserve our beautiful village, working with excellent colleagues. I aim to translate my experience of running businesses to helping to get important things done that the community are asking for, working as a team.

My interests are trying to stay a little fit in my lycra, trying to grow edible things at the village allotments before the caterpillars eat them, and trying to cook recipes in the time they claim to be made.
