Migrant workers in the region are set to receive a helping hand in staying in contact with friends and family back home.

The Post Office says Thetford's large Portuguese and Polish communities, along with the nearby American airbases, can get free weekend calls to 20 international destinations.

From this week Post Office branches across the country started offering a series of phone and internet packages which will give customers free weekend calls to UK landlines as well as countries including Australia, America, Poland, Canada, Cyprus, France, Germany and Ireland.

Hugh Stacey, head of HomePhone and Broadband at the Post Office, said: "Customers across Norfolk tell us that, despite the explosion of other methods of communication such as email and text message, there's still nothing quite like hearing the voice of a loved one.
