The mayor of a market town says it will be a "delight" to welcome back the town's registration office.
Fakenham’s registry office, in the Connect building, will open its doors once covid restrictions ease.
Norfolk County Council announced that it was temporarily closing the Oak Street office on January 30, 2020.
Mayor Gilly Foortse was "appalled" when she discovered the office was closed, as she said the council heard without consultation or notice.
On hearing the news that it is set to reopen, she said: “We would be delighted to welcome back the registry office to the town as it not only serves Fakenham but surrounding towns and villages.”
A Norfolk County Council spokesperson said: “Like many of our smaller registration offices, the Fakenham site remains closed due to covid restrictions.

“Public safety is our main priority and these smaller offices cannot safely accommodate face-to-face appointments under the current rules. Our plan is to re-open in the existing location in Fakenham when it is safe to do so.”
