Michael Lilley is the Green Councillor for Ryde East (including Appley Beach) on Isle of Wight Council and trustee of IW Youth Trust and Wight Aviation Museum.

He has created a children’s story character called Papa Owl with local artist, Helen Stiles, based on himself and his late father, Geoff.

Geoff Lilley was a pioneer in aviation and astronautics. Michael will be telling stories of how Geoff worked with Barnes Wallace on the bouncing bomb, and how he worked on the design of Concorde and the Sea Harrier. He even designed a flying toilet for Churchill!

Michael was a pioneer in the field of mental health specialising in Post-Traumatic Stress. He is now aged 60 and moved into politics. He believes that we are all unique creators and all have inner inventions.

The Annual Dinner celebrates his Dad and the need to encourage young people to be the inventors and innovators of the future.
