I moved to Wiltshire with my job in 2005, took a chance on Holt, and haven’t looked back since. I have never lived in village with such depth, and an inclusive attitude. I qualified as a Chartered Accountant in the 1970s, and have spent over 40 years in various financial roles, before largely retiring in 2012. Against this background, I guess its no surprise that I have taken on the role as Chair of the Finance Committee.

Moved to Wiltshire from Sussex – love the countryside and rural life but miss the sea! have lived in Holt for 18 years and became a Councillor in May 2013. I have worked in the NHS as an Information Analyst for many years, have recently reduced hours to one day a week in new job & enjoying the challenge. Having attended Parish Council meetings for many years reporting proceedings for Holt Magazine I am fully aware of the dedication and hard work required to be an effective Councillor. I am on the Village Facilities and Finance Committees and aim to ensure that where possible we encompass views of all Holt residents.

I moved to Holt in 1999 having spent the previous 33 years in the Army. I then worked for B.T for 8 years, but am now fully retired. I served on the Parish Council from May 2003 to May 2007 and from early 2010 to date.
I am chairman of the planning committee and serve on the Village Facilities Committee. My other main interest in the village is as chairman of Holt Magazine.

I currently chair the Village Facilities Committee which is responsible for caretaking, maintenance and upkeep of Greens,the Recreation Field, Dawes Pond and other village facilities. Prior to retiring some seven years ago I owned and ran an International design company based in Bath.

I moved to Holt in 2007 with my wife Chris, having lived in Bath for 33 years. I have a degree in chemistry, but spent my career as a manager in the NHS, eventually becoming a director of the Bath District Health Authority in charge of planning and information services.
We thoroughly enjoy village life and activities ( e.g. minibus driving – me, and lunch club cooking – Chris) and I volunteered to take part in the first go at a village plan in 2009, when I realised that my experience might be useful to the Parish Council.  My centenarian mother moved here in 2011.  I serve on the Traffic and Finance Committees.

cocker spaniel, having lived previously for 6 years in Bradford on Avon. We love the rural outlook, facilities and lifestyle that the village has to offer. I have been an Engineer Officer in the Royal Navy for 26 years and held appointments at sea and ashore, mostly in leadership and technical/project management roles. I have recently taken an assignment in Bristol which should see some relative stability over the next few years, and, as a big fan of localism, I am keen to offer my services to the village community through the Parish Council


Alan Hendon

I am a retired chartered surveyor and have lived in Holt with my partner for 20 years. My daughter also lives in Holt and our grandchildren attend Holt Primary School.

I believe people should be given a say in the management of their community and having been given that say it should be used. I hope my professional and life experience will be of benefit to the council.

I  have lived in Holt since 2016 after buying my first home here and am keen to get more involved in the local community. I live on the main road, so am particularly interested in traffic calming and pollution levels in our village. I hope that I will have the opportunity to work on solutions to these and other problems, to make a difference to the village, no matter how small.
