The Hunter’s Lass Elect 2022 – Kelly Lorimer
I was born in Bilston on 31st december 1980. I have two sisters, Tracy and Libby. I was brought up here with my Dad John and my Mum Margaret.
I attended Bilston Primary until P3 and then Roslin Primary for P4 to P7, and then on to Beeslack High school from 1992 to 1997.
I attended Penicuik Army Cadets for many years, competing in many different events and achieving my sergeant stripes before I moved into full time employment.
I worked in Edinburgh in various hotels as a room attendant and a housekeeping supervisor before taking time off to have my kids.
I have two children Ashleigh, my oldest who has just become a Mum and my son Cody who is still at school.
Since returning to work I now work for SRUC as a team leader in one of their research buildings at the Bush Estate.
I moved back to Penicuik in 2012 as this is where my roots are . I took a job in our local supermarket to work around the kids.
I met my Hunter at a local riding yard and we have now been together for eight years. We both went for Penicuik’s Hunter and Lass as we had been involved for a few years prior and were absolutely over the moon when we were elected as Hunter and Lass 2020 but Covid happened and a long delay… I’m very happy it’s going ahead this year so we can take up our roles.
