I have been on the Parish Council for 22 years, including as Chairman prior to being District Councillor for North Molton Ward.

Being a Parish Councillor enables me to know and understand the needs of a rural community and I am keen to develop the relationship between the Parish Council and parishioners to represent the needs of the community.

Mr Ron Procter

Mini Poole, Fore Street, North Molton, Devon EX36 3HL.
Tel: 01598 740206
Victory Hall Representative
Cllr Proctor - Having spent my life running my own motor repair garage in London, the thought of retiring to Devon was tempting. We moved to North Molton in 1986, bought a beautiful Victorian house which we made into a guest house, then in 96 we bought a thatched cottage which needed restoring, completed various building repairs for friends/neighbours, also restoring furniture, finally at the age of 77 building my own home here. In my spare time I am a drummer for two choirs and two entertainment groups. I have been a councillor for over 22 years, and enjoy supporting the village.

Mr Andy Radley

Frayne House, East Street, North Molton, Devon EX36 3HT.
Tel: 07720 445453
Cllr Radley - I am a retired vet returning home to Exmoor in 2020, having worked in a mixed vet practice in Leicestershire for 30 years. I was brought up on a family farm near Brayford although research into the family history suggests the Radleys were living in North Molton in 1636. Having been visiting the village for 20 years and now living here my wife, I care deeply for it and see my role as a Parish Councillor being a way of supporting and developing a positive future while maintaining its sense of friendly community in a wonderful rural setting.
