  1. Peter Hiller, what can I say. A top bloke, someone who always supported me in my role as Councillor and supported Stapleford Community Group. Alongside others he helped us get the Defibrillator at The Co-Op on Hickings Lane. Always welcoming and a pleasure to be in the presence of. A friend who I will dearly miss.

      His devotion to preserving the heritage of Bramcote village shewed a love an devotion to the community he lived in.
      Thank you Peter.

  2. I am so sad to hear that Peter is no longer with us. I knew him as a local artist, resident, community advocate and friend. He will long be remembered by all of us who call Bramcote our home. Heartfelt condolences to Barbara at this sad time.

  3. Having served as a Trustee from the very beginning of the Tower Trust without doubt as the tribute clearly says it was Peters endeavours and his infectious enthusiasm that drove and brought and continued to bring the project life. The Community will be for ever indebted for his Conservation work in the village and his legacy will live on for generations to come.

    Peter our good friend was a unique character, certainly never fearful of bringing to the attention of local Authorities areas needing attention that concerned both himself and his beloved Bramcote.

    Socially he was always great fun, generous of heart, the ‘life and sole’ of any party and his passing will leave a huge gap in many lives.

    Our heartfelt sympathy to Barbara and trust she will be comforted by the affection, love and respect of so many people from the many spheres and interests of his rich life.

    RIP Peter.

  4. I first met Peter some years ago through Neighbourhood Watch. From recollection, Peter, Ian Tyler, Martin Plackett, Roger Jones and I made up the Bramcote element of the quarterly Stapleford Community Safety meetings (too many different names for the group to go into!). Peter was also a keen supporter of the Bramcote CAT meetings – both mainly with his conservation “hat” on.

    Peter was a lovely charismatic man – and a talented artist – and will be missed.

  5. I would just like to echo the sentiments expressed here by saying that I was always impressed by Peter’s drive and enthusiasm to make our area a better place. He was prepared to volunteer many hours to lead, nurture and support community efforts, which included the work of the Conservation Society and the Old Church Tower Trust, as well as contributing much to the creative arts both through education and participation. Peter has left many enriched by his efforts.
