An auction room is set to resume bidding with plans to reopen later this month.
Durrants Auction Rooms, in Beccles, are now holding valuations, by appointment only, with plans to host the first sale exclusively online on Friday, June 12, having been closed since March following the coronavirus pandemic.
Director Nicholas Rudge said: “We are thrilled to be able to return to what we do best and provide a valuable service to our many loyal customers.
“Obviously, there will be some changes to our procedures to maintain social distancing legislation but we are very much open for business.
“Thankfully, the vast majority of our sales have been available to follow online for some time with live video and remote bidding so this service will now take centre stage until we are able to welcome the public back fully for auctions to watch live and in-person.
