Active Fakenham, which is planning a range of activities for the town this year, is looking for people and groups to get involved.
The first major event will be the second Fakenham Showcase Day and Shopkeepers Olympics which will be held in the town centre on Saturday, May 2 (10am - 1pm).
Active Fakenham chairperson Richard Crook said:
“Last year’s event was a lot of fun with over one hundred volunteers offering tasters or demonstrating many of the activities which are available throughout the year.
“We had various dancing groups, martial arts performances, Zumba and lots more to watch or join in with. This year maybe we can make it bigger and better.”
