THE Inner Wheel Club of Hereford Wye Valley has a new president.

This is the second time around for Christine Starnes as she takes over as president of the club, and she is looking forward to the coming year.

Christine and her husband Chris moved to Peterchurch from London 10 years ago. Both embrace and love the country life and all that it offers. Christine works in Peterchurch as a public service officer for West Mercia Police.

Christine gets involved with many local activities as well as participating in the Marches Pétanque League. Being a keen photographer, she is also a member of the Hay Photographic Club.

Her husband Chris will be Hereford Wye Valley Rotary Club president this year, so Christine is hoping to arrange many joint events. She believes closer links with Rotary will help to strengthen the bond between the two organisations. During her time as a member of Inner Wheel she has seen many clubs close, but Hereford Wye Valley has a healthy membership and she hopes to organise some interesting events and functions throughout her year.
