Exciting times ahead were promised for Thetford as the EDP opened a new office in the town yesterday.

Editor-in chief, Nigel Pickover, and Elizabeth Truss, MP for South West Norfolk, were joined by people from across the area to open the office in King's House, King Street.

Mr Pickover said the opening was a sign of the EDP's commitment to the town.

'I came here two years ago and promised people that Thetford was a top priority for us, and that we wanted to be at the heart of the community.

'This office opening shows we are serious about that, and we are delighted to have a headquarters here where we will be doing all we can to support this great town,' he said.
