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.

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.

Jaco Koen
Born in South Africa I became a naturalised British citizen in 2009. Moving to Little Gransden in February 2016 with my wife Estelle and daughter Lani, we have fallen in love with the village, the surroundings and the people here. As a keen DIY'er I keep busy at home on weekends, and during the week I am the Managing Director of RNT Tanks and Silos Ltd, located in Gamlingay. Previous to this I have worked in Life Sciences for various companies in the UK and abroad. There have also been a few years in Botswana, where I started a commercial hydroponic farm growing tomatoes for the local market. Although I enjoy the basic things in life, I appreciate the importance of progress and am a student in getting his balance right. If successful, I would offer both my managerial and practical skills and experience to the benefit of the council and the residents of Little Gransden.
