Hi Sharon, I am the sponsor for Cambridgeshire as part of the England Project. As the Cambridgeshire category is a high level category, please could you review the County Category on this profile and replace it with a relevant place category, if possible. If there isn't a relevant place category, you might consider deleting the county category altogether. I will follow up in a couple of days and make the changes if you haven't had a chance. Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss. Susie
