    Getting to know us… Part 4

    • 11th October 2011

    Here’s the final installment of our staff introductions.

    ?(From left to right): Isabel, Admin Support Assistant: Always have to be doing “something”. Current fad is crochet – am making loads of crochet flower brooches & hair slides. Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas this year!

    Jean, Archivist (Acting): Ray Charles is my number one favourite musician, love music, Jules Holland, gardening, gin and tonic, walks on deserted beaches and looking at the stars, tend to take the mickey, don’t take life too seriously.

    Paul, Head of Worcestershire History Centre: Supports Middlesbrough FC, and just as proud at being part of our lowest ever crowd as I was in attending our first ever Wembley appearance.

    Val, Archives Assistant: I am a keen gardener and use the phases of the moon when planting doesn’t work though!!

    Beth, Outreach Worker: Loves her baby boy, being by the sea side, activities requiring walking boots, coffee, girly gatherings, any event that requires bunting, old maps, ethereal American folksy music and her husband.  Maybe not in that order. 

    Justin, Outreach worker: Actual  job – chauffeur to my progeny. Like a good boondoggle (hoppy beer) and melancholic celtic music!

    (Not pictured):

    Sandra, Casual Archives Assistant: Chocoholic, absolutely adore puddings.  Can bore folk with info on Worcestershire war memorials and their casualties.  Suffers frequently from ‘grannynesia!!’

    Lesley, Archives Assistant: Likes: cinema, music, detective stories, Harry Potter, travel, Richard III, art deco,  Johnny Depp and cream scones.  Dislikes: all reality tv shows, and banana flavoured anything.

    Teresa, Archives Assistant: Loves baking, studying and competitons.

    Steve, Archives Assistant: A bit of a nostalgia addict! I love studying  history, including my lifelong obsessions with railways and steam locomotives, and military history. Chelsea FC supporter and guitarist.

    Hilary, Archives Assistant: Can’t enter a fabric or craft shop without buying something. Loves modern jive and swing dance, knows all the right moves but not necessarily in the right order. 

    David, Local Studies Librarian: Enjoys tennis, modern jive & salsa.  Always pleased when it’s an F1 weekend.  Guilty pleasure: watching Challenge TV.

    Elizabeth, Casual Archives Assistant: Another chocoholic, fortunately also enjoy gardening, yoga and walking, nothing too strenuous though.

    We hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know us all a bit better. We’ll be back soon with more behind the scenes information and a count down of the Top Ten most used archives.
