Stories of Lynn's successful Spring Talks programme finishes on Tuesday 24 April with a fascinating talk titled 'The First and Latest Female Mayors'.

Stories of Lynn’s Learning and Engagement Officer, Rachael Williams, will explore the life of Florence Ada Coxon, who became the first female mayor of King’s Lynn in 1925, with the current Mayor of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, Councillor Carol Bower, reflecting on her experience of being mayor in 2018, as she comes to the end of her tenure.

The talk will feature a wealth of photographs and information recently shared by the family of Florence Ada Coxon, as well as the official portrait of Cllr Bower, this year presented by Your Local Paper to King’s Lynn Town Hall, to mark the end of Cllr Bower’s time as Mayor in May.

The talk takes place at 6:30 – 7:30pm at King’s Lynn Town Hall, with tickets available on the door for £2.50.
