Welcome to Hilton's Website

Within the last Poppy Appeal our fantastic door- to – door collectors raised £812.47 from your donations but due sadly to the current crisis , our instructions do not allow them to do so in 2020. The income nationally for this year will clearly be much reduced but the Legion still have over 6million past and present service men and women and their families in our care so every donation will be even more hugely appreciated than ever.
HOWEVER, due to the very goodwill of the owners of the businesses listed below and in return for your donations you will be able to acquire poppies, wooden crosses, and VE Day 75 and 2020 pins, together with appropriate sanitising arrangements for your safety: -
Simon – Prince of Wales
Sunil - Hilton Shop and P/ O
Roland – Monach Farm
Lindsey – Barkley Grange
Also : - Margaret Shardlow – 4 Mill Hill End
Julie Briggs – 5 Flackdale Road
Saturday 31st October to Saturday November 7 th
(NB not the usual fortnight )
Thank you for your patience everyone.
Margaret and Julie

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
