Paul has lived in Fenstanton for 28 years and has been Chairman of the Parish Council for the last three years; he was re-elected as Chairman for the current year. During his career Paul lived in Kenya for five years as an ex pat in the role of Financial Services Director for a major high street bank. After running his own company for eight years, Paul retired from business in 2012. Since then he has been serving his community as a Parish Councillor. He has also become involved in a variety of voluntary organisations and has been a Church Treasurer for many years.

Paul’s main objective on the Parish Council is to ensure that local residents’ views are represented at Parish, District and County Council levels. His personal interests include visiting English Heritage and National Trust sites, international travel, walking and spending time with family in Southport and Liverpool from where he originates. Paul has two daughters, two grandsons and a granddaughter.


Nigel Ferrier (Vice Chairman)
Nigel moved to Fenstanton just over 12 years ago. His company develops and delivers branding and marketing campaigns for a series of blue chip companies and some of you may know him from Fringe in the Fen which he established and delivers with a local committee. Nigel has extensive experience of many kinds of committee work and decided he would like to contribute to the work of the Parish Council after seeing that it has taken a change in direction with evidence of real and appropriate change. Nigel recognises the challenges the Parish will face with the enlargement of the village after the new housing developments are complete.


Ian Caswell
Ian moved to Fenstanton in 2008. He is a retired Police Officer, originally from the Sheffield area. Ian has been on the Parish Council for four years and is looking forward to helping the village develop in the future. He is married and spends most of his down time either in his camper van or watching rugby. If he can do both together he is happy.


Kevin Forbes-Mitchell
Kevin is married, with 1 son and moved to Fenstanton just over a year ago, having previously lived in Cambridge. He is a former HR / Recruitment Manager, most recently working for Cambridge University, based at the Medical School at Addenbrooke’s Hospital. He also does some volunteer work at Wood Green. As a ‘new’ resident to the village at a very exciting and challenging time in its development, he is very keen to bring a ‘fresh pair of eyes’ to the Parish Council.


Peter Hayes
Peter has lived in the village since 1982 and was formerly employed as an industrial pneumatics machine engineer for approx. 50 years travelling extensively throughout UK.

Peter trained in Scotland, Holland, USA and Japan. He is particularly interested in the traffic and parking problems in the High Street and throughout the village but looks forward to working on any Parish Council projects for the benefit of residents


Bob Henderson
Bob has lived in Fenstanton since 1980. Until he retired Bob was a Consultant Physician. Up until 18 months before retirement, Bob spent 10 years working as Medical Director and Deputy Chief Executive at Hinchingbrooke Hospital when waiting time targets and budgets were priorities. Retirement was a blessed relief but the Parish Council has provided its own challenges and a particular interest for Bob is the provision of cycle-ways.


Roy McGee Roy began a career in the leisure industry in Great Yarmouth, which is where he originates, and subsequently went on to live and work in Leeds and then Bristol. He moved to Fenstanton in 2000 together with his wife Heather and worked, until his retirement in 2007, in outside catering. Since his retirement Roy has spent his time on his hobbies, these include: indoor lawn bowls and gardening; his keen interest in gardening has led him to some involvement in Fenstanton Open Gardens. Roy is disabled and a wheelchair user and, as such, is particularly interested in accessibility.
