The office of the Dereham Times, Fakenham and Wells Times and EDP in mid Norfolk has moved, but the newspapers will continue to remain at the heart of your community.

The Dereham office has been at Bond House on the town’s High Street since February, 2008.

It has now moved across the road to Breckland Business Centre, Saint Withburga Lane, Dereham.

And to coincide with the move, the newspapers have welcomed a new face to the reporting team.

Reporter, Donna-Louise Bishop, whose family home is at Cawston, near Reepham, has joined the staff at the Dereham office as a senior reporter and will be reporting on events and stories from across the district.

She said: “I am really looking forward to working on the local paper for the area.

“Whatever your story, I would love to hear from you.”

Donna-Louise is returning to journalism after working as a creative writing tutor and she will be covering stories across the Times circulation area.

She joins a team which comprises editor Adam Lazzari and reporter Steve Shaw.

Mr Lazzari said: “We are proud to continue working in the centre of Dereham, ensuring that we are at the heart of the community.

“Donna-Louise is a welcomed addition to the team and we look forward to hearing from you with any stories you may have.”

The old office was opened on February 1, 2008, by Miss Bond, whose family ran the Bonds toyshop from the building.

Here she is pictured after cutting the ribbon.

The group aims to continue recording the town’s history via photos and documentation.
