I have lived in Hilmarton for over 10 years with my partner, 2 dogs and a cat. I have made some fantastic friends who all enjoy what Hilmarton offers.
I wanted to get involved with the parish as the upkeep, safety and any crime issues are very important to me, so we can ensure everyone can enjoy the lovely surroundings that we have.
My day job is with a UK connectivity infrastructure company and I look after the south-west region, which keeps me very busy.
High on my priority list is to encourage residents to become more vigilant about what is going on around them – Hopefully we can wipe out incidents of car vandalism, dog theft, property damage and other such upsetting crimes.

Happily, my banns were read in St Laurence’s in 1980, my parents living at Cowage and the parents of my wife Sally at Avon. Christened in Bishops Cannings and at school in Savernake Forest, I am a furriner with admiration for the way in which the parish manages its affairs; looks after its churches, school, alms houses, halls and cricket club; contributes to housing development; seeks improved road and verge management; and for how it draws together its different interest groups and as a community, both in good times and bad; with distant memories of the Duke...
Living at Corton since 2005 and working in international financial services since 1976, I serve on the board of the Marlborough Downs Space for Nature and sit on the finance committee of the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust.

I moved to the village in 2018 with my husband after falling in love with it in the pouring rain, and never looked back! Since then we’ve explored every public right of way and can’t think of anything better than being outside enjoying the charm that the village and neighbouring areas have. It’s this that inspired me to get involved, meet the local community and hopefully play an important role on sharing our love for the place we all choose to live in. By day I’m an optician and customer services manager for a national domiciliary company after realising I wanted to help support people when volunteering in a nursing home as a teenager. One thing led to another as they usually do and that’s where I find myself now. I’m passionate about the countryside, sustainability, health and well-being and hope I can promote and support ideas to continue ensuring we have a fantastic place to live in and share with one another.
