Congratulations to Lynda Gilroy on her recent appointment as East Lothian Athletics Development Officer. The East Lothian Athletics Development Officer role is supported through a partnership with East Lothian Council, Enjoy Leisure and Team East Lothian and will give Lynda the opportunity to get involved in developing athletic endeavour throughout the community in East Lothian.
Lynda will already be familiar to many as a Run Jump Throws Coach at many of the Primary Schools across the county, a Physical Literacy Coach at Team East Lothian, a Jog Leader in Musselburgh, and a club runner with Musselburgh and District AC. And that’s just some of the activities she’s involved with!
Lynda will be working with Team East Lothian, Dunbar Running Club, Haddington Running Club and Musselburgh and District AC at club level, will be involved with JogScotland groups across the county, and will be working with Primary Schools, Secondary Schools and community groups to further athletics as a vehicle for competitive engagement, physical activity and a means of improving health and well-being. And she has a few other potential projects up her sleeve too!
