Downham Market Heritage Centre, based in the Town Hall, is temporarily closed for a construction project.

A new lift is being installed in the building and it will remain closed to the public until at least November 11.

The programme of monthly talks will not be affected but will be held in the Assembly Rooms.

Weekly workshops will continue throughout the period, but will be held in the Old Fire Station, Priory Road,  from 9.30am to noon on Tuesdays instead.

Alternative venues within the Town Hall itself will also be used according to availability while the work is carried out.

Anyone wishing to join the workshops or the society should call 0775 1900606 or email
