On the 5th March 2018 Paul Howcroft was elected to serve as parish councilor and will represent the Harecroft Ward until May 2019.

Paul has lived in Harecroft for 5 years.  He is marred with a daughter who attends a local primary school.

He said " I feel passionate in bringing a much needed voice for Harecroft.  Being on the border of Wilsden it is of shared opinion that Harecroft has been forgotten and I am extremely keen as a parish councilor to make any improvements."

We wish Paul well in his role as our new councilor.
