Tom Hilliar

Funeral tribute
The death of Mr. Tom removes from the parish one of its oldest inhabitants. He passed away in his sleep on Sunday in his 87th year at Rose Hill Farm where he and his wife had been living in retirement with their son Mr. Frank Hilliar for upwards of nine years. Mr. Hilliar had been out and about, as usual, on the previous day and for his age was considered an active man.
For over 49 vears he lived at The Mill Okeford Fitzpaine and during that period always associated himself energetically with all the parochial activities. He was one of the early members of the Parish Council, an enthusiastic supporter of the village flower shows and Slate Clubs fetes.
The Cricket and Football Clubs also found in him a keen and ardent helper; indeed, in the early davs he was formidable member of both organisations. He also frequently and successfully appeared in the West Pennard eleven during their local cricket contests. He was an exceptional shot, being very quick with the gun, and he could formerly throw a good quoit. Also in the noble art of self-defence, many youngster was first brought to book at the Mill where the proprietor was no mean exponent of the craft. In fact, Mr. Hilliar was an all-round village sportsman.
