Sam is the Operations Manager for King’s Lynn Town Hall and Stories of Lynn, and has been in post since 2014, but has been part of the Borough Council since 2001.
Sam is responsible for the day to day operations of both facilities, and still gets goose bumps every time she walks into our beautiful venue! You can often find her dealing with brides and grooms, organising our bookings, and leading her great team like a trooper!
In her free time, Sam loves spending time with her family, and she can often be seen getting her "fit" on in the gym.
David has been a caretaker at King’s Lynn Town Hall for nearly 14 years, because of the nature of events here, especially the civic life of the Borough, he feels that rather than having thirteen years’ experience he has had a year’s experience thirteen times!
As well as being involved with the day-to-day running of the Town Hall, the previous Tales of the old Gaol House and now Stories of Lynn, he is on civic occasions a Sergeant-at-Mace, or in regular parlance a mace bearer, and at times Sword Bearer to the Mayor. Until recently he was, when required, the Mayor’s chauffeur (the only time that he ever got to drive a Mercedes!)
He gets great pleasure from helping hirers organise and run their functions, and he loves to expound on the glorious history of the series of buildings and the artefacts that comprise the King’s Lynn Town Hall.
Tim is one of our caretakers at King’s Lynn Town Hall, and has worked at the Borough Council since 2001.
Tim can often be found setting up for events, carrying out maintenance tasks with his trusty tools in hand, and front of house, suited and booted at weddings.
In his spare time Tim loves spending time with his family, trying his hand at DIY, and showing off his culinary skills, mostly through BBQ’s! He is never happier than when relaxing in front of the TV with a much loved cuppa!
Rachel is the Marketing Officer for the Town Hall and Stories of Lynn, as well as some of the Borough Council’s events. She has recently moved to King’s Lynn so in her spare time she enjoys exploring Norfolk, particularly in the search for the best cream tea!
Bob started at the Town Hall Complex when Stories of Lynn was known as Tales of the Old Gaol House in April 2004, and so far he has been unable to escape!
Bob is our Stories of Lynn Supervisor, and is on hand to meet and greet visitors to the Museum, and to make sure that they have an enjoyable and worthwhile experience.
Bob is also a Town Guide, and his historical knowledge of the town helps many of our visitors.
Outside of work Bob loves Sport, but nowadays it is confined to reading and watching!
Jackie works on Front of House, at Stories of Lynn, Museum and Gaol House, and looks after visitors for three days a week, introducing the museum to newcomers, keeping everything spic and span and providing refreshments.
Jackie has worked at Stories since July last year. In her leisure time she enjoys walks by the seaside.
Luke manages the King’s Lynn Borough Archives in Stories of Lynn as a Trainee Archivist. Luke began working as an Archive Assistant for the Norfolk Record Office in August 2016, after eighteen months volunteering in Archiving, and began his role at Stories of Lynn in December 2016.
You may find him helping a researcher find relevant documents in the catalogue, looking through Quarter Session entries with a volunteer for interesting crimes, or staring quizzically at a text book!
Otherwise he might be planning how to win, the next time he is at a ‘Beer and Board games’ evening with his friends!
Rachael Williams joined the Stories of Lynn in October 2017 as the Learning and Engagement Officer. As a former Primary school teacher and Headteacher, she is delighted to have landed the best job she could imagine: helping to inspire visitors to engage with and learn from the wealth of treasures and information in the most beautiful building in her home town of King’s Lynn.
Rachael is proud to be a member of this historic setting and is bubbling with excitement every time she comes to work and finds out another little snippet with which to amaze and dazzle people, young and old!
When not at work, Rachael enjoys dog walking, camping, paddle-boarding and cycling; and when she gets tired from all that, she enjoys sewing, silk painting, reading and sitting in front of the log burner with a good book!
