On Friday night a nine-strong local police team took on Fakenham youth club members.
A series of six sporting events had been arranged, starting off at the Fakenham Superbowl.
In nearly four hours of competition on the night, talents on show were - flicks, smashing and fancy footwork on the table tennis table; on the darts oche pressure and nerves aplenty, finishing on that elusive double; cannons galore on the pool table; police power play at the bowling alley.
Skill and flair was evident in all events. In particular for the police on the oche Becky Taylor and Malcolm Pearson, on the pool table Angela Grant and Wayne Dawson, at table tennis Suzanne Pulfer and Richard Garrett.

The Fakenham Youth Club in Cattle Market Street is very fortunate that the local police have always given generously of their time in supporting
the club. The event was organised by Janet Vertigan and supported by a dedicated team of volunteers.
The club is open every Friday night from 7-10.30pm for youngsters aged 12-17.
