Workers have been busy litter picking and painting park benches, bollards, and bike racks to attract more visitors as lockdown eases.
The council used funds from the Market Towns Initiative pot to pay a local firm to repaint several pieces of outdoor furniture in the town.
Leader of Breckland Council, Sam Chapman-Allen said he hopes the work will attract visitors, ahead of Monday.
He said: "With the gradual easing of restrictions, I hope people will choose to once again shop local and support the town’s traders, while following the latest safety guidance.
“This is the latest work undertaken in Dereham to deliver improvements for residents and attract visitors.
"We’re also working closely with partners to deliver the ‘pocket park’ on Wright’s Walk, which will include a performance area, grassed spaces, and seating."
