A North Walsham pub is providing a new home for the town’s information hub.

The first visitors are due to be welcomed at the centre next to the King’s Arms Hotel later this month.

Landlord Martin Miles is providing the room on King’s Arms Loke for the town council managed facility.

The information centre had been based in the former town hall on New Road, which is set to be converted into a Wetherspoon pub.

The service was managed for a time last year by Arts North Norfolk, but has now been taken back in-house by the council.

Town clerk Nick Clancy said: “There is not enough room (at the Dayspring Centre) where we hold town council meetings for the information centre.

“The rent is considerably less than the funding we were providing to Arts North Norfolk to manage the facility.

“We are working with landlord Martin Miles on the project and are hoping to be able to link up to the electronic information screen in the pub.”
