Bob Hills

Bob Hills

I was born in Bedfordshire but grew up in south London where I was educated at Bec Grammar school. After successful GCE exams I went into the city to work for a leading insurance company. Three years later I began specialising in construction insurance which was a very interesting and challenging area of insurance, so much so that I spent the rest of my working life in this field.

For around eleven years I worked as a leading construction underwriter for two major insurance companies and the rest of my career was with well-known brokers specialising in major construction projects throughout the world. I was fortunate enough to be involved with some of the greatest international civil engineering projects undertaken during the past fifty years, regardless of their geographic location or political sponsorship. My work took me travelling to visit clients or construction locations, often to overseas places where other colleagues would not, or were not permitted to, visit.

I first came to the Jalon Valley in 1986 when I purchased a plot of land in Alcalali and had a villa built to our requirements. Whilst we lived here for a couple of years our home was essentially a holiday residence until we came here permanently in February 2004. We moved to our present home in Xalo a couple of years ago.

Within the Vall del Pop U3A, I belong to the Spanish speaking group which is fun but does require a bit of mental concentration, while my wife, Diana, goes to flower arranging and the Casual Choir.

Outside the U3A, I am also involved with The Friends of the Children of Emaus and the Anglican Church, often playing the organ at Calpe.

I have been Treasurer of other organisations so taking on Val de Pop U3A is not an unfamiliar field to me.
