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.


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.

ADULT SOCIAL CARE




Cambridgeshire County Council has recently provided an update concerning adult social care, which might be of interest to you.
Do you have an opinion on local pharmaceutical services?
The Cambridgeshire Health and Wellbeing Board has been reviewing local pharmaceutical services – services that help you get and use medicines or medical equipment safely.  The Board's views on these services are written up in a Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment.  The Board is asking for feedback on its views to see if you agree with them.
Feedback can be given from 4 December 2013 to 14 February 2014.  You can give your thoughts by completing a questionnaire, either at your local pharmacy, dispensing doctor surgery, or online at www.cambridgeshireinsight.org.uk/JSNA/PNA
(NOTE – this weblink will only work when the feedback period begins on 4 December)
Stay independent, safe and well this winter
If you or someone you care for needs advice about keeping independent, safe and well this winter, the County Council's adult social care websites Your Life, Your Choice www.yourlifeyourchoice.org.uk and AskSARA online advice and equipment guide www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/asksara provide information about keeping warm, preventing falls and the help that may be available to older and vulnerable people if they are unable to get out and about.  If you don't have access to the Internet, staff in your nearest library will be able to help or contact adult social care customer services on 0345 045 5202.
