Meet your Parish Councillors

Meet your councilors 
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 Chair. 

 Oliver Hipwell Born in Little Gransden and now moved back into the village, as well as working at my family’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. 

Noushin Rostami (co-opted 6 September 2019) 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 fir 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 naturalized 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 work 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 this balance right.  
  Emma Ward We have lived in Little Gransden since 2005 and our roots are firmly established. I feel very lucky to live in such lovely village and really appreciate the people who voluntarily give their time to keep it that way. I am happy to join that team as a co-opted parish councillor and to help realise any ideas and plans that residents have for our village. I hope that my varied work experience (music industry, catering, events and publishing) will stand me in good stead to contribute.
