The Times had been based on High Street since February 2008, and the office also served as home of the Fakenham and Wells Times, as well as a district office of Archant sister title the Eastern Daily Press.

To coincide with the move, the title has appointed Donna-Louise Bishop as a senior reporter. She will work with editor Adam Lazzari and reporter Steve Shaw.

    I can only wish the very best of luck to all involved in this latest Archant branch office reshuffle,hopefully the move won’t further impact on the steady copy sale decline of the DFT,down another 11pc to a woeful 3,900 copies which, in a town of around 35,000 people,shows just how few people see the DT these days.
