Mel Wilkins

I have lived in the Parish most of my life and follow in the footsteps of other members of the Wilkins family who have lived here since 1620.

I have served on the Parish Council for nearly 30 years and am now in my second term as Chairman. I am also Chairman to the Trustees of the Poynder Almshouses, Chairman to the Trustees of Hilmarton Community Association, a member of HAGGIS, Co-ordinator of the Hilmarton Speed Watch Group and producer of ‘Neighbourhood News from Hilmarton Parish’

The wellbeing of the whole Parish is my highest priority and I take great satisfaction being involved in community events and projects, giving a little back to the Parish that has supported my family and I most of my life”.
