Whether it's a weekend away with loved ones, getting to a packed-out stadium, or simply seeing your friends in person again, we can all agree that it is nice to have something to look forward to.

And, following a turbulent 18 months, these experiences might seem even more enjoyable than before. 

With three months of the year left, our reporter, Aaron McMillan, asked people in Fakenham what they are most looking forward in the remainder of 2021.
