Jan Wilson MBE

Chairperson

I have lived in Haddington since my marriage to Ian in 1969. We have a daughter Gayle and a son Ian.

I became a community councillor in October 1994 and have been chairperson since June 1996. I also am chair of the Haddington Events Group and a member of the Haddington Garden Trust, Haddington Community Development Trust, Haddington Bike and Skateboard Park Group and the newly formed Town Centre Group.

I love Haddington. It is a beautiful town and a great place to stay and bring up a family.

John Hamilton

Treasurer

I’ve lived in Haddington from Birth (the Vert was closed for new intakes, so actually born at the Western). I’ve been on the Community Council since around 2010 as the Community is all about what you put into it and take out it – it’s a two way involvement. My speciality is running the Lost Haddington Facebook pages – lots of old photos of all things Haddington!
