Meet your councillors
John Jefferies
John Jefferies was born and brought up on the family farm at Fullers Hill, Little Gransden, where he continues to live and work. He has served on the Parish Council for several years, including two terms as Chairman.

Oliver Hipwell
Born in Little Gransden and now moved back into the village, as well as working on my familiy’s farm for the past 8 years: these connections mean I have a true passion about the village’s rural environment and fascinating history. I understand the importance of everyone having a voice, and feel that I am able to provide the voice and outlook of a younger member of the community.

Robert Murden
Robert Murden has lived in Cambridgeshire all his life, moving to Little Gransden in 2008. He is married with two daughters. His career began in production engineering for high-tech companies in Cambridge and progressed to purchasing manager for a large heating and ventilation company. Inthe past he was an enthusiastic football and cricket player and half-marathon runner. He is now retired, which gives him more time to play golf and bowls.

Laura White
I am a qualified seamstress, working on various theatrical, film and TV productions over the past 12 years. I now work in the education sector, with a Performing Arts Department in Cambridge as well as running a small alterations company. My love for the countryside is rooted deep inside, as I was brought up in the countryside of Essex/Suffolk border, spending most of my time as a child exploring all the local lands, climbing hay bales and making dens with my younger brother. I first came to the Gransdens just over 12 years ago, visiting my now, in-laws. Four years ago, my husband and I found ourselves drawn back to the beautiful village of Little Gransden, from Cardiff city. This little village is definitely our home, where we feel so lucky to be able to bring up our family.

Noushin Rostami (co-opted 6 September 2018)
I am a resident of Little Gransden. I moved here almost 18 years ago and brought up my young family. Due to work commitments, I was away from the village for a period of time. However, I have been back more than four years and, for good. I work part-time as an Occupational Health Adviser for Cambridge University. I so enjoy being part of this beautiful and friendly village. As a Parish Councillor I hope to be a voice for my co-residents. I bring my life experience as a mature mother who is also thinking of the legacy we leave for future generations living in this area.

Winter Gritting - volunteers wanted

The County Council would like to thank the volunteers that took part in our Community Gritting Scheme during a very challenging winter season last year.  
 
For those hearing about the Community Gritting Scheme for the first time it is a scheme where Local volunteers can help to keep their community moving in freezing weather. Under this scheme, the parish or town council agrees specific routes in their area which are important to the local community and agrees them with the county council.
