Lynda Comber

I would like to introduce myself: I am the chair of Littlemore Parish Council, a new & enthusiastic team which represents all areas of Littlemore.  I have 2 grown-up sons and I moved to Oxford nearly four years ago when I married John who has lived in Littlemore for many years.  I am an active member of the Salvation Army.  I have previous experience of being a councillor, having served on both N Wilts Council, and Chippenham Town Council, where I was Mayor.    There will be growth and many changes in Littlemore over the next few years and the council has to be ready to respond, and to make sure that the interests and views of residents are not ignored.  Please feel free to contact me.

I live in David Nicholls Close, and work as a D&T teacher in a local school. Currently building a solar car and I enjoy rowing at Oxford City Rowing club. I have lived in Littlemore since 1958 and have been a parish councillor since January 2008.

Kim and Macer Wicker

Having moved to Littlemore a couple of years ago, we became interested in the parish and in how the parish council operates. We attended parish council meetings regularly for a while before deciding to stand. We feel privileged to part of a parish council and to have an input into all the local issues that affect Littlemore residents on a day to day basis.

Matthew Hutton

I have been a software developer for nearly a decade and I currently work at the Share Centre in Aylesbury. I have lived in Littlemore since 2013 and have been a parish councillor since May 2016. I am also the chairman of the Oxon 20s and 30s Ramblers group and I have been on the committee for my flats since February 2014. In my spare time I enjoy walking, travelling, going to the pub, listening to pop music and reading.

Mashhuda Glencross

I used to be a University Lecturer and spent over 20 years working at Manchester and Loughborough Universities. I recently gave up my academic career to become a company director and run my own software business. I also serve the Computer Science community through outreach, publication, computer science education, conferences and funding strategies in my committee roles within the Association for Computing Machinery and its special interest group on Computer Graphics. I moved to Littlemore just under two years ago and joined the Parish Council in May 2016. I'm keen to help the Parish Council support the Littlemore community through provision of local support and services necessary in a changing community. In my spare time, I enjoy travel, photography, crochet, cooking, politics and reading!

Tina Hill

I am the Manager for an Alumni Relations and Fundraising office at an Oxford college. I was born in Oxford and have lived in Littlemore since 1983 and became a parish councillor in May 2016. I enjoy travelling and spending time with my family.

Sue Stewart

I have lived at St George's Park ever since it was converted from the former Littlemore Hospital. My last job before retirement was at Oxford Citizens Advice Bureau in St Aldates, organising the volunteers and checking their advice. I stood for the Parish Council because I wanted to get involved locally, and am especially interested in planning. I'm secretary of Littlemore Local History Society and chair of our estate Residents' Association. My interests include current affairs, history, art, music and reading.
