I have lived here in Goatacre since 1976 with my wife and three daughters. My three girls all attended Hilmarton Primary School, which I was very proud of as I had also attended Hilmarton School with my three brothers. During my time in the village I have served on Hilmarton School Governors, Goatacre Village Hall Committee and also previously served on the Parish Council.
I am a Regional Sales Director for a company selling poultry equipment, so my employment still links me to the rural economy giving me a good grasp of many issues facing rural life.

I have lived in Goatacre since 1992, after moving here from Yorkshire with my husband and two sons.
Over the years I have served as a committee member of Hilmarton Toddlers, Hilmarton Playgroup and also Hilmarton School Association. I was a committee member of Goatacre Sports and Social Club and also Secretary of Goatacre Village Hall for 10 years.
I currently work as a veterinary receptionist.
I am no stranger to Hilmarton. I came to Wiltshire in 1953, firstly living in Ratford and then moved to Hilmarton in 1958. I now live in the same house that my parents purchased in that year.
I was educated in Calne and began my career with a local legal firm before deciding to move away to Sussex to further that career. I remained away from Wiltshire for some 40 years but still retained an interest in the village through my parents and wider group of relatives who have lived in Hilmarton continuously for over 50 years.
Whilst living in Sussex I served as a trustee of both the adult and children’s hospices, and was actively involved in running a homeless persons project.
Having now returned to live in Hilmarton and with the experiences I have obtained, I feel that with such a background I can hopefully actively contribute something to the village, and also the local community.
