A market town community group has moved online to support the community.
Active Fakenham has shifted its attention to helping people with a new Facebook group and webpage during the lockdown.
Local people can share ideas about how to keep their brains and bodies active and to remain as positive as possible while they are isolating.
Active Fakenham is known for organising events across the town, such as the free music festival, ‘get active’ week and the duck and raft races.
It is aiming to take the national initiatives and add a local twist to it. Having live demonstrations, Q&A and local photographer, Keith Osborn, is running a daily photography competition in the group.
Mr Osborn will also be running a free online workshop for photo editing. As well as encouraging local people to share their ideas, such as how to make home-made bagpipes.
Richard Crook, chairman of Active Fakenham said: “We hope people will use it to share what’s available and ideas.
