ALRIC EDRED TIMS (1927 - ) & MOIRA TIMS (1926 - )

Ed and Moira Tims have lived in Fetcham since 1955 but Ed's family lived in the area for centuries earlier. His career in agriculture involved a transformation of livestock breeding with international implications. They have seen Fetcham change dramatically during their lives and recall a very much smaller and more open village surrounded by fields.
