A charity is looking to fill board member vacancies.

The GW Staniforth Trust is looking for two people to be proactive in the running of the trust.

The trust owns and maintains Kings House, which is occupied by Thetford Town Council and a registration office, Kings House Gardens, Kings House Cottage and the Kings House Annex.

The board members must be willing to be involved in projects and events to raise the trusts profile and safeguard its future.

George Wild Staniforth was a retired Yorkshire who came into the possession of the house.

He bequeathed it and the spacious gardens, a valuable library and other gifts to Thetford after his death in January 1947.

If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a board member contact Tina Cunnell at Kings House or via email at by Friday, August 25.
