The village hall will be decorated with Christmas trees. lights, Christmas decorations , Snowflakes, all to get you in the festive spirit.
You are all invited to the village hall and will be shown to your table to sit with your friends.
We have a fabulous program of festive Christmas entertainment for you all to enjoy.
Shh; and Father Christmas may make an appearance !
You will be served warm minced pies, sausage rolls and mulled wine at your tables.
You will then all be invited to sing along to well know carols and songs.
Its going to be so much fun and laughter. You don't want to miss this event.
Order your tickets very soon as there will be limited numbers and they are selling fast.


I am reticent to bring up the fact that Christmas is approaching fast, but now only a couple of months to go! I am sure that most of you all remember the wonderful Xmas tree and lights that were outside the Village Hall last year, well the VH Committee are now planning for this year. We have been so fortunate for the last couple of years to have large trees donated by generous villagers, and we are now hoping that someone has a tree that they could donate this year. If you do, please get in touch ASAP. Your help is very much appreciated, many thanks. Hilton VH Committee.

*** Update on Hilton's 24 Hour HGV Ban ***
*** August 2022 ***

Dear Fellow Hiltonians

It has now been over six weeks since the 24 hour HGV ban came into force and thought that it was a good time to give you an update, sorry it is a little long but a lot has been happening.

The Hilton Acton on Traffic (HAT) team have been very busy being proactive in trying to get those vehicles/operators who have contravened the restriction to comply, which has not been an easy task. You may have seen HGV Watch sessions being run, this is a Cambs Police initiative which will write to the registered keepers of vehicles who are “caught” by the team. To date the teams have spent over 40 hours monitoring and over 230 vehicles have been reported. The SpeedWatch team are also reporting HGVs observed during their sessions.

We would like to thank you for the reports you have been sending in, which are invaluable, as we can only spent a very limited time “kerbside” monitoring and reporting, and certainly going forward we want to make sure the numbers don’t creep up again, so please send us everything you see with preferably a photo, registration number, date/time and company name to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

What is a positive sign is that most recently a number of sessions we ran didn’t observe ANY HGVs during the hour monitoring period, however there is still some way to go.

We have also contacted over 200 companies whose vehicles were identifiable, to work with them to understand why their drivers were contravening the prohibition and getting them to cease. This has been very successful, in particular with those companies who previously had the most (and heaviest) HGVs using the road, such as Mick George, Hansons, Midland Quarry, Tarmac etc and fleet logistics and supermarkets like Stobbart’s, DHL, XPO, Waitrose, Morrisons, Tesco, M&S to name a few. These companies have taken these complaints very seriously and now discipling’s drivers for contraventions.

I think you will agree there are now very few of them.

The main “excuses” for the drivers using the road where, poor signage, sat navs, hadn’t realised the change as had been using the route for years and even some honestly admitting using it as a short cut!!

We have tried to address some of these “excuses”, and you may have noticed some additional signage (although more is required as recommended by the police), we have been in contact with major mapping and sat nav and routing logistics systems companies to get their system sup to date and as previously mentioned direct education to the vehicle operators.

We have met with a police Inspector to discuss plans for them to help with enforcement and they are keen to help as much as they are able within the very limited resources they have available, but you should be seeing the police in the village stopping offending HGVs and handing out tickets and fines. They will also support us by visiting repeat offending companies to “educate” the drivers, and with written reports.

We know that we will never stop all HGVs, but with continued monitoring and reporting, should be able to keep it to a minimum, and again that really needs all of us to help with reporting any seen contravening. Please send if possible a photo, registration number, date/time and company name to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We are happy to try and answer any of your questions and would be very pleased to hear your ideas.

Next project “SPEEDING”, more of that to come, but we are already working on that and was part of our discussion with the police inspector.

Best regards

Andy Bush, Ken Attwood and the HGV Watch team and HAT “Hilton Action on Traffic”
