Colin Percy - Vice Chairman

Colin is a native of Stockton-on-Tees, though with Scottish parents, so a move from Gosforth to another pioneering railway location here in Wylam in 2016 seems appropriate. He studied first engineering and then town planning (the latter in Newcastle) in the early seventies, moved to Edinburgh then returned with his now wife Liz to work in the region in 1978. First up was a brief stint at Northumberland County at the old County Hall and then he worked at Newcastle City until he retired (early) in 2009. Whilst there he served on the Council of Northumberland Wildlife Trust, though more as a planner than a wildlife expert. He took up rowing with the rest of the family down at Newburn about 10 years ago and now regularly cycles down to the club with Liz and then rows back almost to Wylam, when high tide allows. They also go walking and cycling more widely when rowing allows. Colin joined the Parish Council in May 2017, hoping to put his skills and interests to good use.

Jim Martin

Jim and his wife moved to the area in 1990. Initially living in Hexham and then moving to the lovely village of Wylam in 2007.

His work with the police helicopter and then as chief pilot and fundraiser for the air ambulance with units at Teesside, Otterburn, and Appleby, gave him plenty of time and opportunity to meet and work with local community groups. He is very aware of how much effort goes into keeping these groups afloat.

He is keen to give his time to support all those volunteers and organisations who willingly give up their time to make our village such a great place to live.

His interests are travelling in their camper, walking and long days out in our beautiful local countryside - whatever the weather!
