Both having been born and brought up in Birmingham, Alan and I moved to Solihull on our marriage in 1967. Three sons following in quick succession left little time for much else until they were all at school, where we later ran the Cub Scout Pack for many years. Returning to work I joined Save the Children as Area Organiser and in the 1980’s , moved to North Yorkshire as Regional Manager and Alan to a firm of Solicitors in Leeds. Ripon was a good market town for teenage boys to grow up in and my mother was able to live with us for her last 10 years. It was in Ripon that Alan joined the new Rotary Club and I followed into the new Inner Wheel Club, becoming President just before we moved to the southeast in 1995 when I became Director of Fundraising for The Shaftesbury Society. We soon joined both Rotary and Inner Wheel clubs in Bookham and made new friends with whom we still keep in regular touch. After 40 years working in the voluntary sector it was time to retire, and we moved to the beautiful village of Weston under Penyard. Joining Hereford Wye Valley Club and making more Inner Wheel friends has strengthened my belief in the incredible support our organization offers no matter where we live or work. We now have time to enjoy our garden, folk singing, National Trust volunteering, and when possible seeing our families and eight grandchildren. I am delighted to once more take on the role of District Chairman, which I had enjoyed before in 2015 and look forward to the coming year, as we move further out of lockdown and can enjoy meeting again.
