A jobs fair which was held in Watton has been praised as a resounding success.

More than 150 people from the town and surrounding area attended the Wayland Job Fair, held at Queens Hall, to meet more than 25 employers including Center Parcs, Wincanton and the RAF.

Representatives were available to talk about apprenticeships, training and help with transport to work.

The event was a culmination of a wider Job Centre and Breckland Council roadshow which has been travelling to all the Breckland towns over the past few months to bring jobs and advice to communities.

Following the success of the roadshow, it is hoped the event will become a regular date in the calendar, with another event planned in September and again in March 2018.
