Your Council


Richard Tanfield

Councillor Richard Tanfield

I have been an Easingwold resident since birth. I currently work as an Electronics Technician at a company in York and also run my own electronics design business in my spare time. I am involved with the design and build of many motorsports and timing products and also build special effects for the film industry. My designs have been used in films such as The Dark Knight, The Numbers Station and Spectre.

In my spare time I am co-organiser of Rockin’ All Over The Wold, Easingwold’s annual music and beer festival. I have recently become a volunteer at the Galtres Centre where I am learning the lighting and sound desks for live productions. I also have an allotment where I grow a wide variety of weeds and the occasional vegetable!
