Andrew is married and has two grown up daughters, 4 grandchildren and loves family life in Newton Aycliffe. As a child of eight, Andrew moved to Newton Aycliffe with his family from Hoo in Kent in 1968 and has lived here happily ever since.
He left Avenue Comprehensive School and began his career working as a gardener for the NHS, gaining many skills and qualifications. Andrew honed his skills at Houghall College Durham and became Head Gardener at Bishop Auckland General Hospital working for several years until an opportunity came up at Great Aycliffe Town Council, where he joined the gardening team in Newton Aycliffe.
At the Town Council he soon rose to take on the role of Team Leader. He has had the opportunity to work on some of the fantastic projects which have made our town such a beautiful floral place for the rest of us to take pride in. Just a few of the projects are:
Britain in Bloom, Golf Course Extension, Flower Displays, Our Running Track at the Oak Leaf Centre and the Town Park. He has also supported and help organise events such as: 5k Fun Run, Fun in the Parks, enjoyed by hundreds of our residents, the Great Aycliffe Show Weekends, Remembrance Sunday, our amazing Fireworks Display and, of course, one of Andrew’s favourite events of the year – our Santa Tours which bring so much joy to children and adults alike.
Having retired after 34 years of service on our Town Council, Andrew now has a little time to spend on his hobbies and with his beloved children and grandchildren but feels he can bring a lot of his former experience to good use as a Town Councillor. He is very approachable and willing to help residents with local issues.
Andrew is not drawn to any political party so is standing in this seat as an Independent, where his contribution will be most welcomed.
Andy is the only Candidate who lives in the Simpasture Ward, and has lived at Cumby Road for fifteen years.
Your local Independent Councillors are proud to endorse Andy Hill, he adds quality, experience and ability.
Andrew Hill, 29 Cumby Road, Newton Aycliffe DL5 5JU.
