The Parish Council is pleased to announce that at the Parish Council meeting on 6 September 2018 Mrs Noushin Rostami of 34 Primrose Hill, Little Gransden  was co-opted to fill the vacancy remaining since the election in May.
Noushin introduces herself:

“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 4 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 what legacy we leave for our future generations, living in this area.”

Thunderstorms - advice on power cuts

From UK Power Networks

You may have seen the forecast of unsettled weather over the next few days with heavy rain and lightning affecting parts of the East and South East of England.

We are currently monitoring the weather closely and we are in regular contact with the Met Office as the forecast develops.

Our electricity network is built to be resilient but extreme weather can affect overhead and underground power lines, resulting in some customers losing their electricity supply. Where this happens we work to restore power as quickly and safely as possible. We have organised for additional staff in our contact centre to help customers whose electricity supply might be affected by the predicted weather, and we have called-up additional engineers to carry out repairs to our electricity network.

You will be able to find regular updates on our website and social media @UKPowerNetworks throughout this period.

Anyone experiencing a power cut should:
·         Call 105 to report power cuts and damage to the electricity network, or 0800 3163 105 (from a corded phone or mobile phone if you have no power)
·         Visit for the latest updates
·         Visit and type in their postcode to view our live power cut map
·         Tweet @ukpowernetworks to report a power cuts or to receive updates

We urge the public to stay well clear from power lines and anyone spotting a damaged power line needs to report it to us immediately by calling 105 from a landline or mobile phone.

If they see electricity lines that are down or causing significant risk to the public they should call 999.

We provide extra help to customers on our Priority Service Register during a power cut. Households with older or disabled people, those with children under five, or where someone uses medical or mobility equipment that requires electricity as well as other reasons can join the register. You can find out more information about our Priority Service on our

If you would like to share information about preparing for the extreme weather or the priority service register on social media you might like to use the following:

@UKPowerNetworks has extra staff on hand 24/7 to deal with the impact of the current extreme weather. Call 105 to report a power cut and visit  

Do you, or someone you know, need extra support during a power cut? @UKPowerNetworks provides free services to vulnerable customers. Visit for more information.
