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.

Susannah Collison
Susannah has lived in the village since 2007 with her husband, their two children and dog. She worked as a History teacher at schools in Bedfordshire before having children and now works as a Teaching Assistant at the primary school. She is currently studying part-time to complete her Masters Degree in History, which has a focus on local history and she is also a Cub leader in the 1st Fenstanton and Hilton Pack. She is keen to work with the Parish Council as the village continues to grow and is particularly interested in supporting opportunities for young people in the parish

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.

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.

Colin has lived in the area for 45 years and attended Parish Council meetings since 2006, firstly as a prospective District Council candidate then as the District Councillor and latterly, since 2011, as a Parish Councillor. He prides himself on getting things done. His main achievement for Fenstanton has been to ‘persuade’ Persimmon Homes to finally hand over the junior football pitch area in Hampton Close. This involved buying shares in the company and driving to York to attend the AGM and speak up. Colin is a member of the gold winning team St Ives in Bloom.

Jackie Turner
Jackie's family have been in the village for just over 90 years and are still going. She was also born and bred in Fenstanton and decided to settle in the village with her partner Richard and their 18mth old son.

She studied Fashion, Textiles and Fine Art and is a qualified trainer and enjoyed her studies in art therapy. Now working as a Company Quality Auditor for Hotel Chocolat ..( Yes, she does get to eat as much chocolate as she likes!) She enjoys socialising, cake decorating and spending time with her family. She also has a passion for travelling, trying new food and listening to Fleetwood Mac!

Jackie would like to bring new ideas and thoughts to the Parish Council for families, elders and childrens' activities in the village.

Colin White

Colin has been associated with various organisations within the Parish but most prominently with the Parish Council since the early 1980s. He has been both Chairman and Vice Chairman and sat on all Committees. Colin tries to represent the views and best interests of the Parishioners at all times and will continue to do so. In retirement Colin now enjoys walking Frank the Whippet; providing a taxi service for his grandchildren and escaping on breaks to see new places.
