Traffic

Parish Council Report May 2018

We would like to take the opportunity to introduce ourselves as the new District Councillors for Longstanton, Northstowe and Oakington & Westwick.

We firstly want to formally thank Alex Riley/Simon Edwards/Lynda Harford/Tim Wotherspoon for their long service to the community. They have committed a lot of hard work and energy to the residents of the Parish and it is appropriate that they should be recognised for their contribution. We are fortunate that Alex Riley has kindly offered to give us assistance should we need it and to tap his extensive knowledge of Longstanton.

We would like to express our congratulations to the elected Parish Councillors both existing and new. We wish you every success and look forward to working with you.
