When asked what she wants to achieve:
“I want to work for the common good of Thetford, regardless of Party allegiance and background: We are all Thetford. I am particularly keen to see the preservation and regeneration of St. Peter’s Church as a cultural and community hub, having fond memories of evenings there in as a teenager in the church youth club.
We are privileged to live in such a beautiful landscape and I support the good management of the Town’s Common and Open spaces, being mindful of the adage of leaving a place better than when you arrived.”
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.

Upon leaving school I served an apprenticeship as a toolmaker. I married my wife Linda in 1974 ,moving to Thetford in 1975 where I worked for a local company producing high precision injection mould tools. I raised 2 children in Thetford and now have 4 grandchildren. In 1984 I started my own business in Engineering producing injection moulded tools and in 1990 expanded this to include production of plastic components serving the electronic industries across the UK with exports to Europe and the USA. I have always taken a keen interest in how Thetford has developed,taking this interest further by becoming a councillor who would like to see Thetford reach its full potential.

My aims for Thetford are to see more varied jobs available, to protect our heritage, develop tourism and to make the Town Council more accountable.
I strongly support the development of community and youth facilites such as Charles Burrell Centre. Thetford should have more control over our own future!
Town Council Representative serving on: Charles Burrell Co-Operative Ltd Trustees and Nunnery Lakes Advisory Committee (alternate).
Having served on Thetford Town Council for the last four 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.

Information about the councillors that represent Vicarage Road
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.
