Hiltons Pantomime

A modern-day Cinderella

We would like to thank everyone who came out and supported the first pantomime in Hilton in living memory for a sell-out run. It seemed like everyone had a great time (including the cast!) and made a great contribution to the upkeep of our village hall, one of our greatest, but often undervalued asset.

What was Hilton like eighty years ago at the beginning of the second world war? A National Register compiled on 29th September 1939 provides a remarkable insight into every household in Hilton. Evacuees had already arrived, but there was not enough room in the village school. The National Farm Survey, two years later, gives a detailed account of farming in the parish. There is so much which can be found out about Hilton at a critical point in its development.

I have brought all this together in a book so that everyone can share what I have discovered. If you would like a copy (£7 to help cover printing costs), please contact me at 3, Mill Hill End, or phone 07484 650209
