We are a group of residents drawn from the villages we represent who have volunteered our time to help our communities maintain and improve our transport infrastructure. Find out who your local contact is:

Lode & Longmeadow
Fran lives in Lode and is a member of Lode Parish Council. She was a key figure in the campaigning and planning that went into the creation of the Quy to Lode cycle path and we are delighted she has brought this experience and her many other talents to the A to B 1102 group!
Originally from Pretoria, Tania has lived in Burwell since 2005 along with her Dutch husband, two teenage children, and a Cairn terrier called Desmond. As well as running her own marketing consultancy, Tania is an active member of the community, a regular fundraising volunteer, a school governor at the Swaffham Partnership and serves on the Cambridge 100 Club committee. Tania has excellent knowledge of the local media and business community.
Andrew is fortunate to work from home as managing director of an organic grain business, Organic Arable, so avoids a daily commute. He is however well aware of the issues posed by poor public transport into Cambridge as his daughters have both battled the bus service to attend sixth form college in Cambridge and as his wife commutes daily he regularly hears about the challenges of car journeys. Andrew is a member of the Reach Parish Council and represents Reach PC within the group.”
I have lived in Burwell for 11 years. We moved here from Shropshire when I retired as a Housing Officer to be closer to Family.
I have always been involved in Community activities and I am currently Chair of Burwell Parish Council.
We need better public transport provision especially as we are being encouraged to use our cars less often. Another really important issue is the time and difficulty and cost experienced by youngsters who have to travel into Cambridge to access Post 16 Education and this also limits employment opportunities for local residents.
