Labour’s Sandra Crawford has lived in the centre of Cherry Hinton with her husband Iain for the last 35 years, and their children all went to Cherry Hinton schools. Sandra cycles into Cambridge each day to work at the University’s Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology.
I am proud that over the last few years Labour has made a significant difference to Cherry Hinton, fighting and winning major campaigns and taking up thousands of individual issues.
I have noticed that Labour councillors also care deeply about the community and seem incredibly busy helping with so many local groups, lending a hand whenever they are needed.
Now that I am elected I promise to make a contribution in the same way.

Robert has represented Cherry Hinton on the City Council for the last 17 years and has lived in the village almost all his life. His four children all went to local schools, and he was governor at the Spinney School for over 13 years.
Robert been successful as a local Labour councillor because he is passionate about Cherry Hinton and helping everyone in the community.
Robert has been involved with the local Residents Association for 20 years and in 2008 successfully led an initiative to raise £16,800 to buy a permanent CCTV camera for Cherry Hinton High Street.
Currently he is involved in the Association’s campaign to have a new Community Centre built to be run for and by Cherry Hinton residents.
Robert led Cambridge Labour’s highly successful campaign to prevent the County Conservative and City Lib Dem councils’ plans to move Marshall Aerospace and the associated airport business out of Cambridge (this included marches, a 2,000 signature petition, council motions, TV, radio and press coverage) and in doing so helped save around 2,000 local jobs.
The Lib Dem and Tory scheme was finally abandoned in 2010.

I moved to Cambridge with my wife Barbara in 1971, and have lived in Cherry Hinton, in Teversham Drift, and now March Lane, ever since. Our children went to school here, and we wouldn’t want to be anywhere else! Recently retired, I now work as a volunteer at Darwin Nurseries and also help a number of elderly people including with gardening and other jobs. I also help out with the Barnwell Baptist Church Owls, a group for pre-school children.
My career has taken me from the Adkins factory in Cherry Hinton to the City Council, where I worked as a Meat Inspector, and on to roles in technical sales for various food companies. I have also been involved in the co-operative movement for many years, and having left technical sales I was manager at the Cambridge Daily Bread Co-operative for five years.
During this time I have been active as a local Labour campaigner, starting right back with John Woodhouse’s 1980 election and notably also helping with the campaign to get a proper level-crossing on Cherry Hinton High Street. I have also been actively involved in Labour’s campaign to keep Marshall in Cambridge.
Cherry Hinton still retains a unique identity and I think it is important that our local councillors have the right experience, live here, and know the village and the people. I am honoured to have been chosen with Russ McPherson as Labour’s Cherry Hinton candidates and hope that we can both count on your support on 5 May.

I have lived in Church End, Cherry Hinton, with my wife Carole for the last 28 years. We were married in St Andrews Church in February 1978. Currently I am Head of Security for Cambridge Regional College.
I enjoy playing music at local folk clubs and the highland pipes whenever I can! I also enjoy motorcycling (I also helped start the local BMF Rider Training Scheme), reading and caravan holidays. I am a MAGPAS volunteer for Cherry Hinton, having helped to establish a MAGPAS team for the area.
Apart from MAGPAS I have also been involved in the local community as chair of the Neighbourhood Watch for over 10 years, am currently vice chair of the Cherry Hinton Residents Association, and of course I have also had the honour of representing Cherry Hinton as a City Councillor since 2003 – a highlight of which was being Mayor of Cambridge 2009 – 1010.
Since 2003 I have been involved in a number of successful campaigns as your Councillor, such as stopping proposals to change the Lloyds-TSB bank to a takeaway, campaigning for environmental improvements, helping raise almost £17,000 to secure permanent CCTV on the High Street, thwarting Lib Dem plans for a traveller site on East Pit, and of course collecting signatures, marching, and lobbying as part of Labour’s successful campaign to retain Marshall here in Cambridge.
I hope these efforts, plus the many instances of helping individuals over the years, will allow me to count on your support in May.
