Council Member Details


Jacklin Murray





I retired from the Civil Service in September, 2012. Happiest moment in my day - looking out at the winter weather knowing I don’t have to go out in it if I don’t want to!  Spare time activities:  I’m retired, I don’t have spare time!
Although Pat (my husband) and I don’t have children of our own, between us we have 17 nieces and nephews who are now producing their own families. We have all the joy of having youngsters around without the parental angst.

The SAW Conference is the focal point of the winter, especially between January and March when we are putting the finishing touches to the arrangements. I find it all quite challenging, especially the bit about ‘will it pay for itself?’ I am proud of the fact that the SAW continues under its own steam, solely supported by the efforts of the membership. The end of the Conference heralds the start of Spring for Pat and me. Now that he is semi-retired we spend as much time as we can out and about. Our preferred stamping grounds are the Western Highlands.

I hope to continue as Treasurer until folk get fed up of me or the books stop balancing.
