Cllr Judy Abernethy - has lived in Wilberfoss since 1999 with her husband who has lived here since 1985. She retired in 2013 from HMP Full Sutton after serving 24 years as a prison officer and now spends some of her time volunteering for Barnardos and as an active member of Harthill Company of Archers at the Pavilion. Judy wanted to have a say and be a part of the things that are happening in the village so decided to become a member of the parish council in 2017.

Cllr James Cann - moved to Wilberfoss from Acomb with his wife in December 2013. A sports journalist working in Howden, he was busy preparing to welcome his first child in the last months of 2015. The imminent arrival inspired him to get involved with the Parish Council, to whose mission of supporting, sustaining and improving the village's beauty, safety and tranquillity he is fully subscribed

Cllr Louise Ward – was brought up in the village for 25 years and returned in May 2015 to the place she calls home.  She works as a student administration manager at the University of York and when she isn’t working, supports numerous events and initiatives in the village.  Louise joined the Council to help continue and support the good work people are already doing thereby ensuring the village is well maintained and is an attractive place in which to live. 

Cllr John Cooper – Having graduated from Hull University and worked as a school teacher in the East Riding, John is no stranger to the area. After a career mainly focused on Training and Development in the IT Industry, he and his wife, Val moved to Wilberfoss in 2014 and the couple run their own organisational development consultancy (although John admits to spending an increasing amount of time in the garden and at his allotment). He is a self-confessed IT geek, has a keen interest in Education and skills development, plays guitar reasonably well – but don’t ask him to sing, you will quickly regret it!
