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.

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 Cambridge as a student (I read Natural Sciences at Jesus College) and fell in love with the area, living in Chesterton after university and then moving to Longstanton with my husband after we got married in 2017. I work at a science publisher and spend my free time in my garden, walking our much-loved dog Tilly, and sharing Sunday roasts with friends.

I love living in Longstanton and being close to both the countryside and Cambridge city. As a member of the Parish Council, I look forward to helping residents get the most out of our village.

I’m a consulting inventor who moved to South Cambridgeshire from Nigeria in 2014. My job and hobbies mostly involve tinkering with things and fixing them (or at least finding out how they used to work). I like efficiency. A lot.

I’m huge fan of the Longstanton community and am looking forward to all of the great things that will come with the development of Northstowe. I’m also a massive nature nerd, so if anyone needs a bug identified: I'm your man.

My family and I moved to Cambridge (Longstanton) in the summer of 2018 after having lived in Oxford for quite some time.  I work for a local company in the IT/telecoms industry.

We decided to purchase property in the parish as we really enjoy the family feel in the village.

As a member of the Parish Council I am very interested in community engagement, sustainability and green spaces.

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.

I have lived in Longstanton since 2012, when I moved here with my wife from Cambridge.  I work for a global pharmaceutical company in the facilities management space.

I joined the parish council as I want to be able to contribute to the development of the village during a critical time - Northstowe undoubtedly brings some challenges but also a wide variety of opportunities for our community.  My interests are in green/open spaces and village amenities.

I moved to Longstanton with my wife and then teenage daughter in January 2014 from my home village of Wistaston in Cheshire as one of the manufacturing sites I was managing was located close by. 

Having worked on the Parish plan in Wistaston I recognise the importance of the Parish Council in developing and maintaining the village. So I'm pleased to have the opportunity to contribute to Longstanton, a village I've very much come to love since moving here, by becoming a Parish Councillor.
