THE members of the Inner Wheel Club of Hereford Wye Valley have welcomed Ann Nevelos as their new president.

The club is part of a worldwide women's organisation which promotes friendship, personal service and fosters international understanding.

Ann has always had a passion for music and, when training as a radiographer in Leeds she joined the Leeds Symphony Orchestra. Apart from the occasional maternity leave she was a member of the orchestra for over 30 years.

Her love of music and the arts has led her to choose The Courtyard as the charity the club will support during her year in office.

The organisation delivers a huge range of inspirational and educational community projects that have a positive impact on the lives of Herefordshire's residents, particularly the disadvantaged, for example, those with dementia or struggling in mainstream education.

Ann said 'I am a great admirer of the work done by The Courtyard. It is a wonderful community resource and I am looking forward to working with our club members to support The Courtyard as it continues its excellent community work'.
