A NEW charitable trust which aims to enhance the Broads for both visitors and locals is celebrating the success of its first project.
The Norfolk and Suffolk Broads Charitable Trust (NSBCT) has sourced the funding for and overseen the development of an audio guide system for the Museum of the Broads at Stalham Staithe.
Douglas Munro, the NSBCT trustee who devised and managed the project, said that 20 audio guides have been installed.
“We have been able to include some touch-screen facility development, which can also be used in conjunction with the audio guides.

“This means that, in the future, visitors will be able to access some of the museum's exhibits which are not normally capable of being shown, for example boat plans, books and pictures,” he said.
The work was funded through a �10,000 grant from the Broads Authority-administered sustainable development fund and contributions from the museum and small grant fund.

The trust, set up with the help of a legacy from Lady Mayhew left to the Broads Society, is now pursuing its second project, a �12,000 scheme to provide interpretative display material about Geldeston Lock, near Beccles.
The trust is currently seeking grant funding for the work, which will be carried out in partnership with Beccles Museum, local schools and volunteers.
Dr Munro said that the trust was also keen to consider ideas for future projects and individuals and groups were invited to get in contact with them by email at email@example.com
