1st Vice Chairman

Shirley Cross

I have been a  member of The Inner Wheel Club of Wellingborough for 8 years.  I am married with 3 sons, 3 daughter-in-laws and 6 grandchildren ranging in age from 5 to 20 years old. I  have held various Club Officer positions - International, Treasurer, President and currently Secretary. 
 In 2001 my husband and I took early retirement and moved to France for a few years before returning to help with our grandchildren.  Ten years later I am still involved in the 'school run'!  I enjoy gardening, cooking and entertaining and when time allows reading and of course Inner Wheel which has extended my circle of friends considerably.

The Role of District 1st Vice Chairman


Traditionally this is a watching and waiting year but here in District 7 it includes deputising for  our District Chairman when required . Rarely, it may be a Club business meeting visit. It is important that you have access and some  knowledge of the Constituton and the General Guide.  1st Vice is  also responsible for planning and organising the Inter Club Games Competition the games are a good opportunity to meet members from other clubs and should be fun.
