Council Members

Councillor Christopher Betts


Christopher Betts 

I was brought up in North London and after moving around the country I have now lived in Kibblesworth for over 20 years. I particularly enjoy the open spaces where I go walking with my wife on the common. 

I regularly litter pick in the Moormill Lane/Greenford/Kibblesworth Bank area and have helped in painting the community seats. 

After a teaching career I was elected to the Parish Council in Cockermouth and served as Deputy Mayor for a year giving me useful experience of working with local councils. I am currently Treasurer of Gateshead Local History Society. 

During my time in the North East I have been deeply involved in athletics at Gateshead Harriers and as Secretary of the North East Counties Track committee where I produce minutes and an Annual Report. 

I now look for new challenges in my own locality. 

Christopher Betts.
