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.
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 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.

Trustees, staff and volunteers are pleased to announce that the museum is at last able to reopen to the public from Tuesday 7th July. During July the museum will remain closed on Saturdays but will reopen fully from Saturday 8th August 2020. Social distancing measures will remain in place, limiting the numbers who can visit the museum at any one time.
Throughout the museum we have put in place the safety measures needed to keep the public, as well as our staff and volunteers as safe as possible while the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
Frances Corlett writes:
I love to create and decorate items using materials that most people discard. I started a few years ago when my Mother gave me my old stamp collection that I had as a child. What was I going to do with it? The stamps were fascinating to look at, so much history and brought back childhood memories. I decided they needed displaying so I started to use them to make pictures. That got me thinking what other everyday items could I use? I started taking labels off tins and saving sweet wrappers. My hobby turned into a little business and I named it JessAmy Designs after my two daughters Jess and Amy. I’m always looking for new ways to create and give a new life to something that most people throw away. I’m passionate about the environment and what we need to do to Save our planet, my creations show what can be done with items that get thrown away. I love the fun quirky and uniqueness of the items I create, I hope you do too.
Curator, Liz Davies says:
We are all looking forward to welcoming visitors back to the museum and being able to share the story of the town and the surrounding villages.
