Eileen Fowler

(maybe) the first keep fit instructress?

By Andrea Ash (Nee Pinnell)

I have always thought that the famous keep fit instructor Eileen Fowler was a 'local'. Lately been wondering why Eileen hadn't been included in the 'Noteworthy' section of LDCA, only to have been informed that she wasn't from around these parts. Is this correct?

Thanks Nina for the information.  Eileen Fowler - born too early!  I feel this high-spirited lady would have made an invaluable contribution in today's society.

Eileen Fowler, keep-fit instructor, born 1906; died 7th March 2000, aged 93. Although Eileen Fowler doesn’t qualify as one of Laindon District’s 'noteworthy people', she was a close neighbour.  Eileen lived and worked in Thurrock and is mentioned on the Thurrock Archive website:-  http://www.thurrock-history.org.uk/fowler.htm
