Welcome to Councillor Mike Huntley
You might recall that last month we called for volunteers to join our happy band of councillors. Well, last week we were delighted to confirm Michael Huntley as our newest recruit. Mike, originally from Stratford upon Avon, has lived at Whitchers House, down in Whitchers Meadow for over 20 years. After 25 years in the Army, he joined Hewlett Packard before setting up as a consultant in 2012. Mike has been actively involved in the village at the Catholic Chapel and as a former president of the local Royal British Legion. Mike is married to Anne, a retired teacher, and they have 3 grown up children. Welcome on-board Councillor Huntley!

About our Village
Alderbury & Whaddon benefit from schools, a Village hall and social club, two rural pubs, a police station, a church, a post office and a village store. There is a working village forge, which continues to this day, although others nearby have gone. Alderbury & Whaddon are two small adjacent villages lying on a hill in beautiful unspoilt countryside three miles to the south-east of Salisbury, in the southern tip of Wiltshire. With a population of about 2,000, this quiet rural backwater belies a thriving and long-standing community with a strong sense of identity. There are a number of footpaths around our villages, please click here to download a map of the local designated footpaths.
