Welcome to Inner Wheel District 2
On behalf of District 2 thank you for visiting our website. In it you will find a little about Inner Wheel and our clubs in southern Scotland. We hope you find it interesting
I have lived in Musselburgh since 1968 where at the age of 14yrs I met my late husband, Eoin. We married in 1974 and went on to have two sons, Alan and Simon, both of whom live locally, Alan with his wife Amanda and son Jack, Simon with his partner Hannah.
My family give me great joy especially my two year old grandson Jack. He is great fun and helps to keep me active. I also enjoy reading, painting, sewing and gardening.
I retired from business in 2014 having spent 30 years in retailing and sales in the Gift Trade.
Musselburgh has many traditions and I have been fortunate to have been involved in the Honest Toun’s Association which organises our Annual Festival and the Riding of the Marches which only takes place every 21 years. I have now taken part in one in 1974 and helped in the planning of the last two, in 1995 and 2016. The next one is in 2037 which I hope to enjoy as a spectator.
I have been a member of The Musselburgh Inner Wheel club since 2009 and have served two years as Treasurer and was President in 2014/15.
The Inner Wheel Club of Musselburgh certainly adheres to the ethos of Inner Wheel and I personally have been grateful for the support and friendship I have received from the members.
My first introduction to the District was in 2015 in the role of International Service Chairman, followed by a year as Vice Chairmen.
I am honoured to be Chairman of District 2 this year and I am looking forward to visiting all the clubs, attending events and meeting old friends and making new ones.
