A Breckland museum set to open next year is looking for volunteers.

Museum4Watton will open to the public on March, 16 2018 in two rooms at the town's Wayland Hall.

Two volunteer days are being help on Thursday, November 2 and Saturday, November 4 for people who may like to give their time to help the museum.

They will be held at the museum from 10am until 12pm where members from Museum4Watton will be available to talk through what is needed.

The Museum4Watton group was launched two years ago with the aim of creating a space where artefacts from the town and surrounding villages could be viewed by the public and preserved.
