Hilton Community Garden


GRAND OPENING!  Saturday June 26th 10.30am-1.30pm

We have been delighted by the response to our invitation to join us for the launch of our new community garden and thank all those who have signed up.
Tree Trail.
Each of these posters represents a tree on the Hilton Green Tree Trail which takes place on Saturday 26th June, starting at 10.30 am. At the Village Hall you can collect a pencil and sheet with leaves on. Match the leaf with the tree. Good luck!
*** We are now fully booked as, with Covid restrictions still in place, we are, reluctantly, unable to welcome any further guests and this means that, unfortunately no-one can just turn up on the day. ***
We are sorry that it is not possible to extend our numbers on this occasion but look forward very much to welcoming you to the garden in the coming months and hope that together we can create a beautiful place for all to enjoy.
We are running a waiting list, in case places become available, so do contact Heather (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you would like to be on the list.
PS If anyone has a gazebo they can erect  for the day, please contact Heather.

From 1.30-2.30pm The Village Hall Committee will be delighted to welcome you into the Hall to see the new video equipment and hear the sound system.

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.

Was it too dry? Was it too wet?
A review of the 2020 rainfall record for Hilton

Gillian Sheail, our local Rainfall Observer for the Meteorological Office and Environment Agency, measures the daily rainfall in Hilton. 2020 was a year of both dry and wet spells, culminating in the floods of Christmas Eve and she has written an excellent article which would have been in Spectrum if it was being published. Please find a copy HERE

The ongoing measurements for 45 years provide a useful record of the village’s climate. Monthly and annual rainfall totals for the years from 1976 to 2020 are now available on the village digital archive, copy HERE

Arts Society Huntingdonshire

The Arts Society Huntingdonshire meets monthly in the Burgess Hall to listen to a lecture on an aspect of fine art. Subjects range from painting to sculpture, design, jewellery, architecture, photography, cartoons …even art fraud. Lecturers are selected at a national level and travel around the country to various societies. They are all excellent.

The programme for the first months of next year is typical of the variety in each series and can be found HERE

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
