Although still a relative newcomer to the village, I have always had an interest in all aspects of the village, whether it be historical, environmental or just social, and have tried to play my part in improving many aspects of village life.

Responsibilities: Vice Chairman, Staffing Committee, Planning Committee and Village Traffic Group member and Vehicle Activation Devices. 

Originally from Manchester, Jerry joined the RAF and served 16 years as a weapons technician in posts both home and abroad. This was followed by 7 years in the Middle East before returning to the Cambridge area to marry Christine. He then worked for Network Rail as a signals technician before taking early retirement in 2016. He and Christine (Chrissie) looked to find somewhere away from the city life and decided on Easton on the Hill as a place to settle. They were both struck by the friendliness of the villagers and soon made many new friends. Chrissie is a member of the Horticultural and Crafts Society, both are members of the Bowls Club and Jerry has recently joined the widely acclaimed male voice choir “Harmony on the Hill” and is learning to ring the Church bells. He welcomed the opportunity to give something back to the Village by serving on the Parish Council.

John Ward

Responsibilities: Trees and Greens Working Party

I was born in Easton on the Hill over 70 years ago, and married my wife in Easton Church over 50 years ago. I was educated in both Easton and King’s Cliffe schools, on leaving school, I worked for 2 local builders and a local farmer before going to work for Stamford Construction operating heavy plant, building new roads and repairing old ones. I was self employed in the building industry for 10 years before moving to Linecross Plastics for 20 years. Then thankfully I retired.


I have had dogs all my life and for over 50 years have walked them up Ketton Drift Bridleway. I have had an allotment on the Westfields site for over 26 years, my wife and I spend lots of time working our plot, health and weather permitting.
I have bred exhibition canaries since I was boy and have been a member of Stamford Cage Bird Society since 1985, we have held our monthly meetings in Easton Village Hall for over 30 years. I am currently President of the Society.

I was a member of the Parish Council in the 1990s on the Trees and Greens committee, and was also Allotment Office. I gave it up due to working shifts at the time and other reasons. I was co-opted back on in 2018 hoping I could make a difference for all residents.
