Employees across West Norfolk have been getting used to a different way of working – from their bedrooms, lounges and spare rooms.

More workers have taken government advice and set up their work stations at home.

Staff at Your Local Paper have joined the growing ranks of workers now based at home and reporters are like many others trying to get to grips with a different way of producing their normal service.

Presenters at King’s Lynn-based KL.FM have transformed  rooms in their homes to radio stations and Simon Rowe said after trials last week, all the presenters were expected to be home based from this week.

“We had a trial run last week to make sure the technology was robust and because we can and should be working from home,” said Mr Rowe who is now working from his spare bedroom.

“It was really weird. I was in my spare room and life was going on around me, the kids were getting ready for college, my wife was at work and the dog was sitting on the bed next to me. It was a bit surreal but once I got the first link out of the way it didn’t feel so different. 

“For me it’s about letting people know we are all in this together and trying to bring the community together.

“The radio is everyone’s friend and people also need an escape.”
