Nigel Phillips (Chairman)

I came to live in Chillerton in 2014 with my wife Gill when she took up employment on the Island where she had spent most of her life before meeting me on the mainland.  Once here I became involved in village life and serve as the Treasurer of the Community Association.

I used to work as a supply teacher to schools on the Island but have now retired.

Before coming here, I have in more places than I care to remember.  I was born in Cornwall and have lived in Scotland, Singapore, Worcestershire, Peterborough, Nottingham and Derbyshire.  I spent many years in the IT industry and followed that with a career as a Science Teacher.  I also spent some years working for the Citizens Advice Bureau in Derbyshire.  I served for some time as a Councillor for the City of Peterborough while living there.

Gill and I have two daughters, a son and a grandson, all living in the Midlands.  A granddaughter is expected soon. We live here with two little Jack Russell terriers who have us wrapped round their paws.

My hobby is to play wargames with miniature figures, most of which I have painted.  Ask me if you want to know more – it’s great fun!

I have recently completed the training to be a Citizens Advice Bureau Advice First Aider. Contact me if you need help in getting advice.

Sara McWilliam

As part of my childhood, I lived in Gatcombe in the 1960’s/70’s and attended Chillerton school; returning to live in Chillerton in 1994.

I worked for the Isle of Wight Council in Children and family services for 29 years, taking early retirement about four years ago.

I am so fortunate to live in such lovely countryside and one of my greatest pleasures is walking my dog Evie in the village and surrounding areas.
