Councillors

Dan delaMare-Lyon

Born in Cambridge, I grew up in Over going to the Primary School, and then Swavesey Village College. I've lived relatively close to Cambridge my whole life, and have worked for local businesses large and small.

I moved back over to this side of Cambridge to be close to family in 2011 when we moved to Longstanton.

An Engineer by training, my focus has become global telecommunications and I now work for a California company that is at the cutting edge of telecommunications, enabling the Internet, Telecoms Operators and Businesses to scale and keep pace with the growth in demand for communication technologies.

I've always felt a strong connection with the local villages having grown up here, and was glad to be able to offer my support to the Parish Council. Longstanton has a long history as a village, and has strong ties with those villages surrounding it, and I look forward to helping Longstanton grow and develop over the coming years as our community grows, the development at Northstowe expands, and our village continues to be a desirable and family-friendly place to live.

Steven Burns

I’ve lived in Longstanton for 5 years with my wife Sam and moved here from Waterbeach after 25 years in the RAF. I now work as an aircraft engineer at Marshall ADG in Cambridge.

Whilst in the Forces I was actively engaged in Service welfare on various committees. After leaving I missed this engagement with my community. I therefore elected to join the Parish Council to help maintain and improve my new village.

I moved to Northstowe in 2018, from my hometown of Ipswich, Suffolk.  I have worked in management and customer service for the past 15 years, before moving into the charity sector.  I was co-opted to Longstanton Parish Council in 2019.  I am on the Sustainability Working Group and also part of the Allotment Committee in Northstowe (not part of the parish council.

Neil McPhater

I became a Parish Councillor when I retired a few years ago from a Cambridge high-tech firm. I have had to get used to the formality of a Parish Council but procedures have to be followed and be seen to be followed – that is the way of public life. My wife (who is active in the local branch of the Women’s Institute) and I have been resident for 30 years in the village where we brought up our two now grown-up daughters. 

One of the things that attracted me to the Council was the ambitious plan to develop a community hub in the village fit for the 21st century. With Northstowe and the A14 reconstruction on our doorstep it is an understatement to say the Council has a lot on its plate. To address this however we have a proactive and very constructive group of Councillors from a wide range of backgrounds with whom I very much enjoy working.Roles

I have lived in the Cambridge area since 2011, and moved from Cambridge into one of the first houses completed in Northstowe in 2017.  An astronomer by training, I am now a product manager for a financial software company in Cambridge.

I decided to apply for co-option to the Parish Council in 2018 as I see it as a great opportunity to contribute to the development of the area, and to help ensure that the interests and needs of both Longstanton and Northstowe residents are represented as Northstowe grows.

I have lived in the local area most of my life, growing up around Cambridge and have lived in Longstanton for over 13 years.  I love the history of the village, from the old airfield to the very rare thatched church, so was keen to join the Parish Council and be part of village life.  Especially keen to make this a great place to live and ensure that villagers have great amenities to enjoy, while keeping it independent from Northstowe.  Both children attend/attended Hatton Park and my son plays for the Colts team.

After years of working across the country I am fortunate to now work in Cambridge and enjoy biking (and occasionally running) to/from work on nice days!  Also passionate about photography and sports.

Mike Sinclair

I have lived in the local area for the majority of my life and moved to Longstanton 7 years ago to raise my young family. I am a qualified accountant and work for the University of Cambridge.

I was intrigued about becoming a Parish Councillor due to the development of a new Community Village Hall and to understand the developments in Northstowe and how this could affect our village.
