A Norfolk town’s heritage trust is looking for space to store some of their larger items - including the town’s original 1954 sign.
“We’re full up, so we badly need more space,” said Dereham Heritage Trust chairman Trevor Ogden at a meeting of the town council, who added that they needed somewhere dry but not necessarily warm.
“This is so important for Dereham’s history,” said trustee Dr Peter Wade-Martins.
“We want to keep collecting. We’re collecting for you, we’re collecting for the town, so do please see this as a town archive, which we are curating.
“We very much hope a solution to this quite serious problem can be found,” he added.
The council resolved to look at what space may be available.
The trust says it needs space for:
- 1 Norfolk village named among poshest places to live in UK
- 2 Man's surprise at finding virtually naked man asleep on car in Cromer
- 3 Weather warning extended as thunderstorms set to hit Norfolk after heatwave
