William Holmes -   My working career started at the age of 13 when for 3 years I delivered news paper each morning.  At 16 I entered the Army and trained as a surveyor, being posted to Germany from 1965 to 1968 when I left the Army and worked for 10 years as a civil engineer at various local authorities, specialising in public health engineering.  I then left London and came to live in Wiltshire.  

I worked in the window industry over the next 20 years, running my own limited company for a number of those, and combining 17 years as a member of Wiltshire Special Constabulary, and running Fovant Youth Club in our village during the same period.  I carried out several large projects on my home, ready for my retirement, and my funds make me financially independent for the rest of my retirement.

I support the Forum Stroke Club and the Thursday Lunch Club, both in Wilton, meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays respectively.

Since retirement I have been Chairman of my Parish Council, with responsibilities as Flood Warden, Civil Emergence Coordinator, and Neighbourhood Watch Organiser.  In June I was elected as a Governor, which is my main concern, and am currently writing a biography of my Grandfather.
