Everything from Lego-building to playing rugby will be on offer at a huge week of free or low-cost events heading to Fakenham. 

Active Fakenham Week, organised by the group Active Fakenham, will also feature archery, creative writing, cycling, singing and much more. 

Richard Crook, Active Fakenham chairman, said he was excited about this year's event, which would take place August 19 to 27.

Mr Crook said: “We started the Get Active Week around 11 years ago and it’s still going strong.

“It’s a winner all 'round. Local people get to join an activity and local organisations get to showcase what they can offer.

“I have been shocked at the cost of some of the activities available in north Norfolk this year.

"We focus on making ours inclusive which is why we insist on low cost or free but at the same time they are exciting and fun.”

A gym is offering free membership for the week and there will be writing workshops, yoga, talks, free cycle safety checks, and events specifically for older and younger people.

The week culminates in the non-competitive community cycle event, Ride North Norfolk, which takes place on Sunday, August 27.

Last month, Active Fakenham announced the event was keeping its low entry fee to help support people who wish to take part during the cost of living crisis, with the event’s routes ranging from 15 to 102 miles.

Mr Crook said: “We have examples of how this week can support the ongoing success of regular opportunities in the town as well as how it attracts people to the high street.”
