Having always loved the village, we were lucky enough to find a plot to complete a self-build in 2004. My two daughters attended the local schools and I have worked at our local hospital as the Community Team Leader Midwife for 32 years, which is a job I love and a feel privileged to do.
I have always been passionate about our local community. I was on the Hilton Feast week committee for twelve years, and was Chairman for five of those. Each year we put on a full week of entertainment for everyone in the village with many memorable times of laughter and great satisfaction seeing the villagers come together to celebrate Feast week. I have also been involved in organising the Hilton Summer Ball alternate years which is another wonderful event for the parishioners to socialise and enjoy the beautiful landscape we are fortunate to have in Hilton.
I became a Parish Councillor because I care about our maintaining our village heritage, ensuring parishioners views are listened to and implementing ideas to enhance our wonderful village.
