Happy 90th Birthday Michael Hill. Michael along with his late wife Caroline was a founding Trustee of Murton Trust.

Murton Trust was established in 2001 at the conclusion of 12 years of sand and gravel quarrying. After the completion of sand and gravel extraction Michael and Caroline worked with Aggregate Industries to ensure the land was given the best opportunity to evolve into a reserve where nature not merely survives, but thrives.

Michael Hill, a former director of Don and Low, is this week celebrating his 90th birthday and the family will be celebrating with the planting of two trees on the nature reserve.

“My father has always been a passionate and dedicated environmentalist”, says his daughter, Emma Caderni “I can think of no better 90th birthday gift for him than to see how far this beautiful place that he and my mother created has come”. “It is now a thriving community with a dedicated staff and volunteers who feel as passionately about the place as he and my mother did”. “My brother, sisters and I are so proud of our parents and the mark they have left on this beautiful corner of the world”.
