A social media expert who moved to Suffolk after falling in love with its depiction on a television comedy has been appointed to a key business role in the county.

Victoria Perkins has become the Framlingham Business Association’s new chairman – just over a year after the BBC’s Detectorists attracted her to the town following an 18 year stint in the US.

“We knew we wanted to live somewhere beautiful and somewhere that had a sense of community, a town that was small but had energy and activity,” she added.

“After a visit to Framlingham we knew this was the place we wanted to live and relocate our business to.”

Ms Perkins, who runs Deep Space Marketing with her partner Guy Downes, said she recognised the importance of being part of a community helping other small businesses.

“Whenever possible I shop local and use Framlingham based companies,” she added.

“I love that I can grab dinner from the butchers, pick up some interesting cheese, stop for a coffee, buy a gift and a new outfit all within walking distance of home. I want to support that as much as I can so our town continues to thrive.”
