Steve Siddall

I moved to Holt in 1999 having spent the previous 33 years in the Army serving in England, Northern Ireland, Germany, Zimbabwe and USA. I then worked for BT Defence 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 with interests in planning, maintaining and developing the village facilities and in highway matters.


Richard Goodman

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.

John Fletcher

I moved to West Wiltshire in 1988 and have lived in the village for the last 16 years. I was born in Glossop Derbyshire and spent my formative years in Bakewell Derbyshire. I am a proud Derbyshire lad. I have spent the last 40 years working in the landscaping industry for both local and national companies. I am very keen to ensure that we retain the rural environment around Holt and to ensure that we prevent as much as we are able the threat of housing expansion to the detriment of our way of life. I am also concerned about traffic issues and to ensure that we have a voice to challenge decisions made by other authorities which impact on our village.

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.

Kate Learoyd

I moved to Holt from London in 2011. I have three children and my youngest was really fortunate in attending the Pre-School and Holt Primary School. I qualified as a solicitor in the 1990s and worked in commercial litigation for many years. I now work part-time for a charity. Since moving to Holt I really appreciate the community spirit of the village, the scenery and wildlife that surrounds us. I wanted to join the Council to contribute to the village and maintaining the community we value so much.

Bob Mizen

I have lived in Holt for forty years and have been a member of the Parish Council for thirty four years. 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.

Carol Warran

I have lived in Holt with my family for 9years having previously spent 31 years in Cornwall

I grew up in Wiltshire and have always valued and tried to protect the beautiful places In which I live, whilst believing in the importance of keeping them alive, vibrant and accessible to all. I have been a Parish Councillor and a District Councillor for 7yrs and hope my experience can add something to the Council whilst reflecting the needs of those living in the village
