About this website

This website is the brainchild of me (Howard Hill). In general, it’s all about my family in Wantage and further afield, but the blog contains my own personal ramblings.┬áThe three parts are as follows…

  1. Photos. Highlights of the photographs I’ve taken over the years, arranged into albums. I’m adding a paragraph on each album as I get time. This section also includes some old family photos, taken before I was born
  2. Blog. I started this during 2021, but I have also written and added a few blog posts from before 202, and presented them as if I’d written them years ago. I did this as I can present the photos in a more attractive galleries. Not sure if I’ll have the time to continue this; we’ll see.
  3. Christmas. The digital Christmas letters Annie and I wrote on our computers, starting from December 2003.

The Hill Tribe is the name I use online to refer to my family. My family, although expanding all the time, hail from the North East of England. Northumberland and Tyneside; my family roots are very important to me. The family contains plenty of Scottish genes too, as Jamie, Vicki, Gordon and Robert’s Mum was Scottish.

The family is headed up by my lovely and amazing wife Annie and myself and it grows in size, strength, wisdom and love, year by year. I am incredibly proud of my roots and my family.
