Lucy Nethsingha has been the County Councillor for Newnham for the past 8 years. Lucy lives in Newnham, where her children attend local schools. Lucy says “Newnham is a wonderful place to live, and I want to make sure it stays that way, in-spite of the pressures of a fast growing population in Cambridge.”
Over the past 4 years Lucy has fought hard to maintain the 199 bus, which is vital for many of Newnham’s older residents, and also to make sure the County Council is providing enough school places. The next four years will bring new challenges, particularly tackling increasing congestion and improving safety for pedestrians and cyclists, and Lucy is keen to see that these challenges are met.
