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.
