Hi everyone, my name's Melissa and I live in Lanark. I currently work as the Development Manager with Lanark Community Development Trust (www.lanarktrust.co.uk), I manage the Lanark Website (www.lanark.co.uk) and I am a freelance Marketing Consultant (www.facebook.com/melissareilly247). Previous roles have included working at New Lanark World Heritage Site and working for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Organising Committee. In my spare time I am a member of Lanark Amateur Musical Society and I also enjoy reading, long walks, cooking (and eating!), gardening and trying out various crafting endeavours. I love living in a rural area as you can walk out your door and be surrounded by nature and beautiful landscapes in a matter of seconds.
