We moved to Hilton in 1990 because of work and stayed. Both children born here and have now moved to careers elsewhere. I first joined the Council in 2000 and am now serving my fifth term. Now retired but Parish work helps to fill the employment gap. I liked the village, still do, and my ethos is to maintain it.
I was born and raised in Cambridgeshire and have lived in Hilton with my wife Alison for 30 years, bringing up two children. Hilton village has a rare and vibrant community and I feel fortunate to be part of that and to have spent so many great years here.
In that time, I have restored a number of important and historic buildings in the village, including The Manor House and The Limes. I hope the village heritage handed down to us, can be conserved for future generations, and at the same time believe the parish can grow to face todays challenges and opportunities.
Moved to Hilton in 1997 and have been on the Parish Council since 2013.
I joined the Parish Council in May 2020 having lived in Hilton for 18 years. I’m married to Dave and we have 2 grown up children who both attended Swavesey Village College. I was Vice Principal at Long Road Sixth Form College in Cambridge and retired in 2018. I am actively involved in a church in Cambridge, enjoy walking and cycling, boating on the River Ouse and looking after our young grandson one day a week. I enjoy gardening and entered the Hilton produce show for the first time in 2019. I was delighted to win 3 cups! I am very keen to listen to parishioners views and to work on improving life in the village for all villagers.
Rob was born and raised in Hilton and later returned to live here with his family in 2007. He now lives with his wife and three children and are about to build, what will be between them, the 8th house they have lived in the village.
I joined the Parish Council in 2021 for my second term, having served nearly 5 years during my first. My wife, Fiona, and I moved to Hilton in 2007 with our son Tom. Very soon after, our daughter Francesca was born. I have always been village focussed, previously having been on the Hilton Feast Week & Hilton Ball committees for several years.
My professional life is in aviation, working for easyJet as a Captain on the Airbus fleet. In my spare time, I am a keen cyclist and love skiing when the chance permits. I look forward to hearing from parishioners on their views, ideas or concerns. Hilton is a great village and I look forward to being part of a team that continues to keep it flourishing.
I moved to Hilton in 1982 with my wife and two children. This soon became three. They have now all married and moved away, – although two of them would like to move back to the village, the place does that to you. Apart from a three year break, I have been on the Parish Council since 1992.
My working life was in the agricultural industry. Before retirement I was involved in helping DEFRA devise the various Countryside Stewardship schemes and training farmers to implement them. I hope some of the knowledge I gained can be put to good use looking after our village.
I have lived in Hilton since the age of 6, apart from a brief period in London for university. I am passionate about Hilton and its community and I am also involved in several community groups. I am currently Chair of the Hilton Feast Week Committee and serve on the Hilton Village Hall Committee as the Feast Week representative. I am also a Governor of Fenstanton and Hilton Primary School, which my children attend. I am the EYFS link governor covering both Reception and Preschool due to my previous experience as Chair of Fenstanton Preschool.
I am currently working towards my Certificate in Local Council Administration (CiLCA) which is the industry specific foundation qualification.
