From ideas of where to grab a bite to eat, to the route for a heritage trail - a new town guide is highlighting the best Fakenham has to offer.

Active Fakenham has produced the 2022 Fakenham Town Guide, which includes useful information about local shops, services and clubs as well as shining a light on some of the more interesting features.

The guide, which is sponsored by Aldiss, will be delivered to residents across the town via the May edition of the Fakenham Sun, and in the Fakenham and Wells Times and Dereham Times on March 31.

The guide is already available on Active Fakenham’s website.

Richard Crook, chairman of Active Fakenham, said: “We are very pleased with this year’s guide.

“This year it’s full steam ahead, the guide will go out with the Fakenham Times, the Fakenham Sun and there are copies available in shops in the town. It is also on websites including the Active Fakenham site where it can be read or downloaded.

“We will also distribute it across social media. We hope you find it interesting and useful.”

Its widespread delivery will be good news for all, following the last couple of years have been difficult as distribution was disrupted and at times people were advised not to pick up or circulate paper materials.
