STARS of the small screen were out on Saturday to open a new war-time themed tea room.

The Marigold Tea Room was officially opened at the Dad’s Army Museum, in Thetford, with Bill Pertwee – Warden Hodges in the BBC sit-com – on hand to cut the ribbon.

Corinne Fulford, museum manager, said the day was a ‘great success’ and Rodney Tregale, a tour guide at the museum, said: “What a great day. I feel privileged to be part of a great museum.”

Writer and producer David Croft, Frank Williams – the vicar – and locations manager Harold Snoad also took time out to meet fans and enjoy a quick cup of tea.

The stars stuck around to sign books and Mayor Pauline Quadling also joined the fun.

The tea room will be open on Saturdays from 10am-2pm.
