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. Lockdown Blog. Some ramblings from December 2019 to June 2021. Most posts are about the period of enforced lockdown.
  3. Christmas. The digital Christmas letters Annie and I wrote on our computers, starting from December 2003.

About the Hill Tribe

The Hill Tribe in Wantage August 2017

The Hill Tribe (and Hilltribe) is how I refer to my family online. 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 Rob’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.
