I moved to Mepal in 1982 and subsequently to Sutton in 2001. I have therefore spent more than half my life living in the area which I am happy to call home. About eight years ago I found myself in a strong debate with friends about the good and bad perceptions of the Parish Council. Feeling that a lot of what I heard was purely conjecture I made the decision to find out what actually happens. I stood for election and became a Councillor. I am now much better informed and feel proud to be a member of the council which voluntarily strives to make and keep Sutton a great place to live.

Born and raised in Mepal then refined in London, Brendan moved to Sutton in 2014. Inspired by the political turmoil of the Summer of 2016, he then joined the council with a mission to help “Make Sutton Great Again”. Part of the Sports & recreation, Digital communications and Traffic & Travel working parties and the Planning committee; Brendan seeks to help Sutton grow in community as well as population. As a nation with an ever-swelling population, the local and regional needs for housing, transport, education and healthcare are always the priority.

“Mark has been a parish councillor in Sutton since 2011. He served as the Vice-Chairman from 2013 to 2016 and the Chairman since 2016. Since May 2019 he has also been one of the two East Cambs District Councillors for Sutton. He lives with his family on The America and works as a Program Director for a technology company in Cambridge.

He joined the Parish Council to volunteer his time to help improve our local community. He was very pleased to see the Neighbourhood Plan adopted in 2019. The document was created with inputs from many people in the village and is helping guide future development of the local area. It ensures new and improved facilities and infrastructure are provided along with affordable housing when new development is proposed."

I have always lived in the village, attending the Primary School and the Village College at Witchford, as do/have my two children. Some of you may know my wife who works at the village school. I am currently the Engineer to the Ely Group of Internal Drainage Boards. (Look them up, it's fascinating!) All through my career I have been involved in the flood risk management of the local area, first with the Environment Agency and now with the IDBs. I hope my experience will be useful in my role as a councillor, especially on the planning committee. I joined the council in May 2019, having felt it was time I gave something back to the village I have grown up in. I am keen to continue to make the village a great place to live and ensure villagers have amenities to enjoy.

I am a teacher at a local secondary school, a mother of a child at the village school and preschool, a resident and a parish councillor. I have a genuine concern for the residents in the village, especially the more vulnerable younger and elderly populations, and have joined the council to help make sure their views, most especially, are heard. Having held positions on various staff governance committees I have found out that the best way to stay informed is to actively get involved and fight for what I believe is right and necessary. THAT is why I joined our parish council.

As a young person living in Sutton, I decided to join the parish council to make sure that our village was catering to people my age, but also to make sure that it continued to be great for future generations.

I have lived in Sutton for 16 years with my wife enjoying the village and local area. I work full time and employed in various roles within the aircraft industry since leaving school. Having been a Parish Councillor at another local village, I felt it was time to offer my support to this wonderful village and do what I can to help make sure we are all proud of our village, how it looks, and what it has to offer in the future.

I’ve lived in the village for 17 years. My partner and I moved here because we were impressed with the large number of community groups and activities that were going on.

Are they still as abundant? I'm always interest to know.

I’ve been involved in community and creative arts most of my life, both here in the UK and internationally, working with communities who struggle to be heard.

The sweeping historical cuts to youth and family services concerns me and I’m interested in finding out more about their consequences in our village and surrounding area.

I’m especially interested in protecting local health services, arts education in schools and enabling people to engage with the local authority system to improve it.

2021 - post pandemic - we are living in very difficult turbulent times and I feel it’s vital we all contribute our thoughts and ideas in order to provide some positivity for future generations.
