Matt Rogers

Driffield And Rural

Born in Bridlington but brought up in rural North Yorkshire I have always loved the countryside and have been involved in Agriculture since I could drive a tractor! Working as a contractor to local farmers I covered a range of agricultural services, anything from milking cows to combining grain in the summer months and attend the Education day on the Driffield Show Ground each year with various items of vintage machinery.

I am currently involved with the clearance of the former Driffield Cattle Market site, which has blighted this area of Driffield since foot and mouth closed the market 17 years ago. Once this work is completed this abandoned area can be released for future projects.

In my view, it is very important to have these derelict sites cleared to stop undesirable people congregating in these areas as often it causes undue stress and anxiety for those living nearby.

My keen interest in music led to a side career as a weekend DJ in the Original Keys, which in turn led me to take over the lease on this venue three years ago. Now, along with my husband Leigh, we are transforming this popular drinking pub with an ever-increasing food offer.

Alongside this I have a small holding/hobby farm, with sheep and pigs destined for our pub kitchen! Our own bacon & sausages make our breakfast a must if in Driffield for food!

Currently enjoying my sixth year as a Councillor on Driffield Town Council, and as a former Mayor of Driffield, I am excited to offer my services and experience as a candidate for the East Riding of Yorkshire Council and if elected would work hard for the local area and the residents of Driffield and the surrounding villages that make up the Driffield & Rural Ward.

I can be contacted at the Original Keys in Driffield on 01377 253343
