About Cllr Mike Hyman

I stood for election as a Farnham Town Councillor as I felt there was a need for Farnham’s residents to be represented without being subject to party political diktat, so that decisions could be made in accordance with the evidence, the law and one’s conscience, rather than the party whip.

I have lived in Farnham with my wife Trish for 44+ years. We have two daughters, a son, eight grand-children and five great grand-children.

I was educated at Loughborough College School, starting work as a motor engineering apprentice, before moving to Tanganyika, East Africa, in 1954 as a garage workshop manager. Trish, my fiancée, followed me and we were married there in 1956, returning to England in 1958. I worked for HMG as a Vehicle Inspector, then as a civilian engineer attached to the Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers, serving in Chilwell and Germany.

In 1970 I was posted to the Fighting Vehicles Research and Development Establishment at Chertsey, and in 1984 appointed Deputy Project Manager for the British Army fleet of Light Armoured Vehicles, until my retirement in June 1994.

Since then I have enjoyed restoring historic Singer cars, producing the Singer Car Club Magazine and website, as well as gardening, playing the organ at Bordon Garrison Church (now over 41 years), and more recently in Farnham’s United Reform Church. I have also been Willow Way’s Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator for over 20 years.

The things I most enjoy about Farnham are walking in the tranquillity of Farnham’s beautiful park, and the warm feeling of belonging when walking around our lovely town.
