Vice President

Michelle Chapman

Well hello and welcome to the Ladies Circle website!  I am super excited and beyond proud to have the opportunity to serve the membership for the next three years and I cannot wait to see what this year working with Lindsay’s chosen charity ‘Societi’ will bring.

I joined ladies circle about 150 years ago, I have aged well if I may say so myself and this is because the stresses of life are so much easier to face when you have an army standing at your shoulder.  It’s taken me several years to realise this but, it’s all good when you are in Circle.

I can talk for ages about Circle and how much it can change and empower women, if you ever want to know anything or hear any stories to make you laugh until it hurts… I am probably your girl.  So, if you are curious, #GetInvolved!

A bit about me personally - I’m 42, married to a fantastically accomplished and passionate Round Tabler; JPH and we live in Lincolnshire with our darling girl Sophie & our four (yes four) cats.  JP & Sophie are both Ambassadors for Round Table Children’s Wish and so our home is a real 4 Club Family Clubhouse.  Professionally, I run the family Wrought Iron Manufacturing Company with my father and also help JP administer his Embroidery company. 

As you can tell, I have masses of free time and so have recently begun to learn magic tricks…. watch this space!!

Our President’s hashtag this year is #celebratingfriendship & she has asked each of us to share how we like to celebrate friendship best in Circle – for me, it has to be visiting other Circles for their special events and listening to their stories.  I never fail to come home full of inspiration and so many new friends, it’s the best way to spend a spare afternoon or evening.


Yours in friendship


National Vice President 2019/20
