I have worked in Cambridge for 25 years, more recently as the Minister at Barnwell Baptist Church (since 2004). I have been a Governor at Fen Ditton Community Primary School since 2008 and have been the Chair of Governors since September 2019.
I was a founding Trustee of Cambridge and District Youth for Christ, Cambridge Street Pastors and more recently, Abbey People. I am also a Trustee of SeeSaw PreSchool.
I served as Chaplain to Cambridge United Football Club for 12 seasons from 2005 through to 2017, and I am currently the Chaplain to the Cambridge base of the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
I am married with four boys and in my spare time I enjoy kicking a (round) ball around and watching films, when not out driving and walking our two dogs.

I’m a parent governor living in Horningsea with my daughter and French partner. I work for a very small (just five of us!) software company producing DNA sequence analysis software for molecular biologists (DNA, proteins, genes and stuff like that!).
My interests are fairly eclectic. Cycling, boats, computers, music, old sewing machines, gardening and growing veg, walking, canoeing/kayaking and much more.
I joined the LGB back in 2020 but because of the pandemic I never got to meet my fellow governors in person until the middle of 2021.
My responsibilities as a parent governor include managing that vast number of policy documents the school has to keep and also I’m the link governor for the mental health audit that the school underwent at the end of 2021.

I joined the governing body as a Trust Appointed Governor in March 2020.
I currently work for Cambridge United Community Trust as Community Engagement Manager, so you might see me out and about in Cambridge running with our Jolly Joggers running group or exercising at our Community Bootcamp or playing football with our Premier League Kicks participants and walking footballers. Before working for the Trust I was a Primary School Teacher for over 20 years. I am married with two boys and in my spare time I enjoy playing and watching football, running and watching movies.

I am the clerk to the Governing Body having joined the school at the start of 2020. I have been a clerk for 15 years working in a number of primary schools around Cambridge and Ely.
I am married with two teenage children and in my spare time enjoy days out with my family, reading and the cinema.

I’m a recent grad, and moved to Barnwell with a couple of friends after uni. I initially joined the Board of Governors as Finance Governor in early 2021, but now mainly have responsibility for monitoring leadership and management at the school.
At university I was treasurer of Just Love Cambridge, a Christian charity aiming to equip students to engage with the world around them. I first came across the Barnwell/Fen Ditton area through some youth work we were involved in, and have been passionate about the area ever since!
Outside of my job as an auditor, you’ll normally find me out on my bike, listening to my range of music playlists or painfully supporting Arsenal.

I was born in Barcelona (Spain), and have a degree in Molecular Biology. I also lived for several years in Amsterdam (The Netherlands), where I obtained my PhD (doctorate) degree in Cancer Molecular Biology. I then moved to Cambridge, where I worked as postdoctoral researcher at the MRC-LMB, before leaving academia and moving into industry, to work at Abcam, a life science reagents provider. I worked in business development and then in product management. Since 2017, I have been Head of Product Development at Cambridge Nutraceuticals, a small Cambridge company that sells food supplements.
My job requires excellent attention to detail and process check, as well as project management.
I am also currently the Secretary of the PTFA at Fen Ditton Primary School.
