One of the longest running local drama groups has been forced to fold because of a lack of members.

The Lakenheath Amateur Dramatic Society (LADS) was formed 60 years ago and over six decades has put on 180 productions and donated thousands of pounds to charity.

Society chairman, Horry Parsons said: “It is the end of an era for Lakenheath and a very sad day for the members and those who regularly support our productions and I believe it will be a real loss to the community.” He said numerous efforts had been made over the past few years to encourage new members but to no avail and this had led to the closure.
