Jenny Flynn


My family and I moved to Stapleford in 2018, attracted by living in a village surrounded by countryside yet still within close proximity to Cambridge. Previously a pharmaceuticals and healthcare management consultant, then Mum/property renovator/Nordic walking instructor/school crossing patroller/carer for ageing parents, I now juggle running my own business with home, family and voluntary commitments.

I was prompted to join the Parish Council in 2020 by the growing threat of local government initiatives to many of the things which are special about Stapleford: its village character, sense of community and surrounding greenbelt. I am certainly not anti-change, but I do believe that growth needs to be sensitively managed, proportionate, considerate of local residents’ opinions and respectful of natural assets which, once concreted over, can never be replaced.
