The fibreglass sculpture was unveiled on Tuesday after Kinnerton took the opportunity to sponsor the hare following discussions with the town council.

Julie Ely from Kinnerton, said: “2018 will be our 40th year of having a manufacturing site in Fakenham and we can’t think of a better way to mark our anniversary and thank the local community for their support.

“It really is a fantastic town with a strong community spirit and deserves to be represented at this county-wide event.

“We would like all the other businesses in Fakenham to ‘hop’ on board to really put Fakenham on the map this summer.”

The hare’s name, design and exact location are still to be announced, but councillors believe it 
will draw visitors to Fakenham.
