Kenneth Roy ATTWOOD, Crossroads, Potton Rd, Hilton

Hi, my name is Ken Attwood, I am a retired Police officer, I am married to Helen we have lived here for almost 4 years. I am standing in the forthcoming election because I want to see a fair and democratic system in our village. I love living here and fantastic social events that we have and I believe in fairness in all things. So, if I am elected, my promise to you all is, to strive to unite the village and give each and everyone of us the right to a fair hearing and a voice in all decisions.




Andrew Julian BACCHUS

Uninvolved with recent parish issues and would seek to contribute a new, fresh and forward-looking perspective in serving the interests of all villagers across the inevitable broad range of what may seem mundane matters. Whilst you may not know me you might well have come across me walking with ‘Pele’ !


altPeter David BALICKI
8 Kidmans Close, Hilton, PE28 9QB

It is important for the Parish Council to attend to its business and for councillors to honour the commitment they make to serve the village in this respect. I was so disappointed to witness the events and personal attacks made in an effort to divide a village that I love living in. I am standing as I believe the best way forward is to work from within and start again. I have been involved with Feast Week since moving to the village, serving on the committee for 10 years including 2 years as Chair, and now hosting the Bingo event on Wednesdays.

On being asked to outline my reason to become a Parish Councillor, I looked back over my 38 yrs here and realised how much I have enjoyed taking part in Village life.

· 1977 helped on Silver Jubilee C’tee then 1st Feast Week.

· 19 years (initially) on Village Hall C’tee. Chairman when PM John Major officially opened extension in 1992. *8 years as Playgroup Assistant in ‘80s

· As President of WI was heavily involved in Royal Wedding/Jubilee events.

My sincere hope is to continue to play my part on a newly-formed PC, elected by Residents, and I promise to continue to do my best to CARE for the Village as a WHOLE.

Hilton Hall, High Street, Hilton, PE28 9NE

Hello, I am Ann Goodridge, 3 years in Hilton and over 25 years in Fenstanton. Our Parish Council needs to be refreshed and the difficult issues resolved with different perspectives and ideas, following the recent unfortunate situation and hurt that has resulted.

I have been employed in local government, in the private sector and, as a business psychologist, have worked across most sectors and learned hugely from every level of employee and manager. I am keen to bring that experience to a thriving and representative service for the Parish, operating with trust, soundness of thinking, openness and fair judgement.


altRachel Ann LAWTON

2 The Aisled Barn, The Green, Hilton, PE28 9NA

I am fortunate enough to have lived in Hilton for 16 years, with my husband Steve, children George and Grace, and Lucky the dog.
During this time we have appreciated friendships and a wonderful community spirit that is unique to Hilton.
I’m standing for all of the people who have expressed great sadness regarding the recent divisions in the village. I would like to represent their view that surely a compromise solution is the way forward. I would urge all of those people to vote in the election to ensure their voices are heard.
Give Peace a Chance!

I am Simon Perry. I have lived in the village since I was six and my family have been serving the community for three generations either in the village shop, behind the post office counter or in the pub. I have also served on the feast week committee.

I think I know (and am known by) most of the people in Hilton. If elected I’d like to get to know the few residents I haven’t met yet.

As the pub landlord I’ve learnt to be a good listener. I’m easily accessible and look forward to hearing from people as to how they would the council to help them.

Parish Councillors must manage Parish business by respecting the needs and wishes of parishioners and the available evidence - not just their own feelings. Councillors actions should relate to their impact on the village and the number of households and people affected. Differences of view and complexities should be addressed openly.
