Councillor Jeremy Benstead - Chair
Jeremy has served as a Councillor on the Cambridge City Council, for the ward of Coleridge since 1992 and was Mayor of Cambridge for 2016-2017.Jeremy was born in Cambridge, and has lived in and around the City all of his life, and is old enough to have been a regular visitor to the Corn Exchange for the Thursday night wrestling. Educated at Impington Village College, most of Jeremy's working life has been spent in the construction industry, as well as working with the Chinese community having travelled extensively in China. He also likes football, boxing, horse racing, modern art and modernist architecture, which he feels is due a re-evaluation. Outside of work and local politics, Jeremy is a big fan of sixties and seventies soul music, and is a regular attender at the Folk Festival and the Corn Exchange.
