Kathleen Hamblin

I have been living in Gatehouse of Fleet for over 25 years, although originally from Ayrshire.  I have three children who have gone through primary school in Gatehouse and secondary school in Kirkcudbright, with my youngest still there at present.  I am a community midwife and was community nurse as well for many years.  I am involved in the Galloway Cricket Club and the Kirkcudbright Running Club.  I feel that it is time for me to get involved with the Community Council now as I have more time now that my family have grown up.

A musician by profession, an embroidery and tapestry weaver by hobby, I became a member of the Community Council in the 1990s, organising the town's bicentenary year of celebrations in 1995.
