I have lived in Thetford – on the Norwich Road estate – since 1975 and over the years I have been an active member of a number of community groups in the town.
I am currently a committee member of ‘The Norwich Road Residents Association’, Treasurer for the ‘Thetford Community Association’ and a volunteer and board member for ‘The Charles Burrell Centre’.
I think Thetford is a great place to live and I am pleased that I now have the opportunity to serve the residents of Thetford on the Town Council.
I am keen to listen to those that I represent and I will bring their concerns to the council. Working together, I am sure that we can make Thetford even better.

As a Town councillor, my aims are to provide all residents with a voice, in order to improve the town and its services making Thetford a place everyone is proud of. I also want to promote more transparency and communication between the Town Council and the public, and support approaches that promote interaction between generations, building on mutual respect and understanding. Lastly, I want to encourage residents from the most varied groups in the community to have a positive and active participation in community life and its services.

Roy Brame was born in Thetford and has run his own retail business in the town for more than thirty years. He first served as a Conservative on the Town Council in 2007 and takes great pride in the heritage of the Town which was once a cultural and industrial centre. The Burrell engines were known throughout the world and Thomas Paine is a renowned historical figure. Roy’s aspirations as a councillor are that we could use these wonderful legacies and marvellous location to bring commerce, industry and pride back to Thetford and make it a modern, beautiful, inspirational town to live in. He served as Mayor of Thetford during 2018/2019.

Having served on Thetford Town Council for the last eight years, my decision to re-stand was easy. Having served on various committees I felt there was still work to do and would like to see it through. Our Town is a place of historical interest which the Council maintains for the future, but we must also think of the younger generation and their future and therefore meet their needs too.

I wanted to become a councillor so that I could look after the interests of the residents of Thetford. I will push for a small play park in the Glebe Close area as there are currently no play areas in this ward. I will address the parking problems in Vicarage Road & Croxton Road particularly the illegal parking. Finally I will try and do something about the rubbish and the general state of the area. It would be helpful if residents formed a Residents Society to work with me to accomplish these aims.
