A district councillor for Aylsham has stepped down from his role after more than 10 years representing the ward.
Ian Graham, who was a member of Broadland District Council, has decided to dedicate more time to charity following the loss of his wife last summer.
He said in a resignation letter that he enjoyed representing Aylsham but felt he could not continue to support constituents alongside his charity work.
Andrew Proctor, leader of Broadland District Council said: 'Ian was a dedicated member of the council with a great commitment to Aylsham and its residents.'
Mr Graham will continue to work supporting children with special needs through Mnarani Aid in Kenya and through Rotary International.
