Linda has worked for Malvern Town Council since 2002 and in that time has undertaken a number of different roles from Events Officer, to Finance Officer, Deputy Town Clerk and then in 2014, finally becoming Town Clerk.
As Town Clerk, Linda holds overall responsibility for the day to day running of the Town Council and for enforcing the decisions made by the twenty Town Councillors. Being Town Clerk is a very varied and enjoyable role allowing Linda to meet and work with many individuals, groups and organisations in the local area in the pursuit of the best level of service delivery possible.
As well as Town Clerk, Linda is also an accountant and produces the Council’s quarterly and annual accounts.
Linda enjoys spending time with her husband and German Shepherd dog Twizel, who she rehomed from a rescue centre. She also loves travelling the world, seeing new places and experiencing different cultures.
If she wasn’t Town Clerk in Malvern, Linda would like to be the female Indiana Jones!
Lyndsey has worked for the Town Council for ten years, and as Operations and Office Co-ordinator she has perhaps the most varied job in the administration team, supporting both the Town Clerk and Operations Manager in the running of the administration office, building maintenance at the town council offices and other operational activities. She also organises Bands in the Park summer series and other events.
Lyndsey is probably the “mother” of the office team, balancing a fairly no-nonsense “let’s get it done” approach with an in-built instinct to make sure that everyone else is okay.
Lyndsey grew up in Germany, and is an interesting mixture of German and Welsh. She loves holidaying with her family and seeing her young son getting excited about new sights, sounds and smells.
Louise joined the MTC team in 2017, and as PA to the Town Clerk and Mayor she is responsible for organising meetings with all of the associated agenda, reports and minutes whilst supporting the Town Clerk and Mayor with their day to day diaries and administration. She also takes bookings for Great Malvern Cemetery.
Louise can be described as a cornerstone of the office, always willing to roll her sleeves up and get involved in a multitude of administrative tasks.
Deb is one of the longest standing members of Town Council Office staff, having worked for the TC since 2004.
Deborah is the Council’s Administration and Finance Officer responsible for allotments, football and day to day running of accounts as well as purchase orders.
Deb is a stickler for detail, with everything from purchase orders to petty cash managed in military fashion. Suppliers can be assured that they will be paid in good time but only if their invoices are clear and correct!
Deb is well known for going on holiday more times than Judith Chalmers (there must be a travel book in the pipeline somewhere) and she views her dog as the best looking dog in the world…… definitely a pampered pooch, he owns more coats than Debenhams!
Clare is the Council’s Events Administration Officer organising events throughout the year such as the Mayor's Bonanza, Health and Wellbeing Fair, Alternative Bands in the Town and Outdoor Theatre.
Clare is also our top negotiator for contracts and prices, and will always drive a hard bargain, getting the best value possible for the Town Council.
At home, Clare lives with cats Marmite (who loves marmite), Simba (rules the roost) and last but not least, daughter Amie.
Clare's claim to fame is being on stage at Malvern Theatres in Jesus Christ Superstar.
Charles is Operations Manager, and manages the Grounds Maintenance Team based at Great Malvern Cemetery. He is responsible for the maintenance of all Town Council Assets and he organises tenders, quotes and operational projects.
As Operations Supervisor Grahame is responsible for the day-to-day supervision of the Operations Team.
Chris is Head Gardener and responsible for the maintenance of the Town Council's parks and gardens, and assists in the Town Council's other open spaces.
Jack carries out maintenance on all Town Council Assets, operational projects and works alongside the Head Gardener on all bedding projects.
