Jo is married to Jon and they moved to the village in 2002. They have four children who have attended the village schools. Jo is very active in the village, was involved on the Ladybirds Play & Toddler Group Committee for 10 years, and used to be regularly found on the turnstiles at Histon Football Club. In 2004 Jo started Mini Musicians, a music group for 0-3yrs with their carers, which she handed over after 12 successful years. Previously she has been a recorder teacher and a mid-day supervisor and she continues to do some maths tutoring. Before coming to the village Jo did a maths degree at the University of St. Andrews and then a PGCE at Homerton College and was an infant teacher at Milton Primary School. Jo comes from a church background, the daughter of a minister and was an active member of Emmanuel URC in Cambridge, before she started worshipping at St Andrew’s, Histon in May 2012.
Rachel is married to Rob, who she met while at school. They moved to Histon in 2009 with their two children, and have attended St Andrew’s ever since. Rachel has been involved in village life in a number of ways including a stint as Treasurer for Stepping Stones, and she is still enjoying voluntary roles in SJClub at the church and within Histon District Girlguiding. Pre-children, Rachel worked in education and has a degree in sociology, economics and social policy from the University of Exeter. She also has a diploma in proof reading—a skill she puts to good use in her current role as office administrator. Rachel spends most spare moments (and some not so spare!) with her nose in a book, unless she’s re-watching The West Wing. She’s always grateful for a nice cup of tea.
Sarah is married to Chris. They moved to Histon in 2012 and have one daughter. Sarah has been worshipping at St Andrew’s since moving to the village and has been involved with the church for many years, including helping with children’s work and regularly volunteering for SJ Club at the church. Sarah was previously a solicitor so has many transferable skills to bring to her current role as office administrator and PA. She loves going to the gym to relax (!) and spending time with her family and dog, Rudi.
