Welcome to the Melbourn ward page. The Melbourn team cover the parishes of Melbourn, Meldreth, Shepreth and Whaddon. If you would like to receive our regular email newsletter then please subscribe here.

On May 6th we not only have County, Mayoral and Police and Crime Commissioner elections, but also a local District Council by-election. We very much hope that Sally Ann Hart, who is the prospective LibDem candidate, will be joining Cllr Jose Hales as the second district councillor for Melbourn ward. Sally Ann is currently a member of Melbourn Parish Council. You can find out more about Sally Ann here.

We're holding a councillors' surgery on Wednesdays 5-6 PM via zoom at the moment.

We hope you have been able to stay safe and well during this difficult year. It’s been incredible to see all the volunteer activities continuing to help our local communities through the pandemic.

If you are a local resident who needs any assistance please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us via the above contact details.
