Councillor Stuart Marshall

I am a “Romsey Boy.” Born 1958 in Mill Road Maternity Hospital. (Formally Cambridge Union workhouse) In the “Romsey” ward of Cambridge.

I grew up in Histon, in a Bungalow that my dad built on the smallest of five plots in Narrow Lane. The land had been apple orchard and had sheep in the meadow opposite. My Grandparents owned The Red Lion Pub and a traditional village shop on the High Street. (Now the site of Barclays Bank).

I have since lived and worked in London, Brighton, Harrogate, France, and Perth in Western Australia.

I now am now a resident of a delightful council bungalow in Girton, the village I used to play in with my friends. As children we would regularly cycle across the railway lines and countryside to play on the recreation grounds or in the wooded areas between villages.

I have been fortunate enough to have worked in a variety of interesting professions: Hospitality, entertainment, retail and more recently in healthcare. I have been involved in many charitable activities as a volunteer and as an employed consultant and project manager.

I love my garden and enjoy exploring the countryside on my bicycle (The current one was hand built in Longstanton). I enjoy local pubs, independent shops, homemade cakes, and open green spaces that are safe for children of all ages to play in.

I believe in a commitment to custodianship of the environment, development of a sustainable infrastructure and the nurturing of a healthy community to be the way to live a healthy and fulfilling life.
