Active Fakenham set up the town’s Info Hub in 2016, aimed to be a stop-gap after North Norfolk District council closed its centre.

The centre opened six days a week on the Market Place with leaflets and information to visitors and locals.

It was a partnership of Active Fakenham and Sweets’n’Things, then SewSweet, who homed the centre.

Chairman for Active Fakenham, Richard Crook, said, “It is very sad that we have had to take this decision, it has been forced on us by a range of unfortunate circumstances.”
