Stretham & Wilburton Community Land Trust

Our Trustees

We can have up to 12 Trustees – nominated by Stretham Parish Council, Wilburton Parish Council and the community at large – all of whom are voted into the role.

Dr Jan Aniskowicz: For 25 years Jan has lived in Wilburton, serving as GP to Wilburton, Stretham and Haddenham. Now working half-time, Jan has been a governor at Stretham Primary School and Witchford Village College and professionally involved with local NHS organisations. His priority is to maintain and enhance community spirit by supporting local initiatives.

Dr Tina Barsby: Resident in Stretham for 22 years, Tina previously served as a Parish councillor and governor at the school. As chief executive of a major agricultural research foundation, she has a wealth of experience of the operation and governance of not-for-profit organisations. Tina raised her two children in the village and has a strong commitment to the community.

Nigel Brown: Chartered town planner Nigel has lived in Cambridgeshire for 23 years, thirteen in Stretham. He has always worked in local government, currently in a senior role at Uttlesford District Council. Nigel is a strong advocate of meaningful community engagement as an essential part of managing local land development.

Anthea Dodson: Born in Wilburton, Anthea (Tup) is Secretary and a Deacon of Wilburton Community Baptist Church. She attended the junior school and her daughters and now granddaughters attend there. She has been an active member of the Parish Council for over 30 years and currently manages the Criminal Justice Department at Cambridgeshire Constabulary. Through SWCLT she is keen that development can be controlled and the benefits go directly back into the community.

Kier Petherick: Kier came to East Anglia to work in agricultural management and brings to the Trust extensive experience of business including land transactions. In 2009 he joined F.C. Palmer and Sons, now the largest farm in Stretham, farming over 3500 acres. As major employers with a long-term commitment to the village, Kier and the Palmer family understand the need for local housing and strong community.

Charles Roberts: Stretham-born Charles has deep local roots, and raised his family here. A member of the Parish Council for almost 20 years, he is East Cambs District Councillor for Stretham, Wilburton and Little Thetford. After selling his electronics company, he set up a consultancy practice. He is wholly committed to maintaining an active and vibrant village where people of all ages and incomes can settle.


David Roth and his family have lived in Stretham for the past four years and around Cambridge for 19 years. He is a chartered accountant and company director, having previously worked in professional services with KPMG and Arthur Andersen and more recently as Finance Director and Chief Executive with companies in the healthcare sector. David has many years' experience of business and funding structures having been involved with business acquisitions, disposals and company refinancing.
