Richard Norton

Councillor, Trustee of the Barlow Charity and a member of the Open Spaces Working Group

I am a Mattishall man, born and bred. I still live in the house in which I was born and am part of a large family that has lived in Mattishall since the 1700s.  I used to run the bakery on Church Plain but since having to give it up I now work as a nurse at the N&N Hospital.


I have been a Parish Councillor since 1983 and served as Chairman for many of those years. I am also a Trustee of the Barlow Charity responsible for the old school site and its affordable housing project.

I want to see the community thrive but to grow in a well-planned and appropriate way for the rural village it is.  I still enjoy this work and find it rewarding - it is something I can do to help this community where my roots are and one which I love.
