Your Liberal Democrat candidates for Buckden, Alconbury and Great Staughton

We have 3 great, and experienced candidates for the wards west of Huntingdon: Buckden, Alconbury and Great Staughton.


Peter Emeleus is our candidate for Buckden. He is Huntingdonshire born and bred, being brought up in Kimbolton and Great Staughton. Peter and Corrine have lived in Buckden for seven years and have two sons at Buckden CofE primary school. His professional qualifications are in the hospitality industry and he currently works in Cambridge. Peter is a Buckden Parish Councillor and is leading the work to expand the allotment provision in the village. He is supporting the work to achieve a Buckden to Grafham cycle track. Peter also helps with the local Scouts and set up the Buckden Community litter-pick.

Jonathan Young is our candidate for Alconbury. Jonathan is really well known. From 2001 to 2014 he was rector of Spaldwick, Easton, Barham, Woolley, Ellington and Grafham, and for part of that time he was also the parish priest of Alconbury cum Weston, Buckworth, Hamerton, Winwick and The Giddings. This has helped him develop a deep understanding of many of the issues and challenges facing residents in these villages. Jonathan served as a town councillor in Godmanchester for a number of years and as a school governor in Godmanchester, Cambridge, Alconbury and Great Gidding. He is an enthusiastic supporter of the communities involvement, such as encouraging the villages to make the widest possible use of their historic community buildings, and supporting a wide variety of community events.

Nick Farnden is our candidate for Great Staughton. Nick has lived with his family in Hail Weston for 17 years and worked in Financial Services for 32 years. He served as Chairman of Hail Weston Parish Council leading projects to open a new cemetery and a £100,000 grant funded improvement to the village Playing Field. Previously, Nick was a Governor of Crosshall Infant School and a Trustee of a large Pension Fund. In 2017 he organised a successful campaign to oppose a large housing development in Hail Weston.
