1st Vice Chairman

Pauline Start

I have been a member of Inner Wheel for almost 10 years following my retirement. During that time I have held the club positions of Committee Member, President, Treasurer and Secretary. I have just completed four years as District Treasurer. I am married to Peter, a retired Lawyer, and a founder member of the South Holland Rotary Club in Spalding. Peter encouraged me to join Inner Wheel to enjoy the friendship and fellowship his mother had experienced as a member. My ‘previous life’ was in Nursing and Midwifery, latterly working in a very busy midwifery team responsible for over 800 pregnant ladies a year. Peter and I have two children Catherine, a Head of Nursing at Great Ormond Street Hospital, and Richard an Agricultural Valuer, Land Agent and Auctioneer. We have two Grandsons, Samuel (9) and William (4).

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  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.
