Tillie Cuthbert (1940-2013) was a campaigner for Trumpington. Matilda Madden married Robert
Cuthbert in Glasgow in 1959 and the family moved first to Ely and then to Trumpington in the
1960s. Tillie was a nurse at Addenbrooke's Hospital and a district nurse in the local medical
practice, a leader of the Girl Guides group and the youth club at the Village Hall and a
campaigner for local issues, such as traffic calming measures on Foster Road, etc.
