New Tourist Information Centre for Fakenham

sweetsnthingsFakenham now has a second Tourist Information point, this one open all year round. A dedicated hub for all things Fakenham has been created in the new Sweets ‘n’ Things premises in the Market Place (next to Nationwide). A wealth of information booklets are available as well as booking forms for many local community events.

The new TIC is a joint project by Sweets N Things’ proprietor Lisa Mallett, Active Fakenham’s Richard Crook and with support from Fakenham Area Partnership which organises the existing information pont at Fakenham Library. Volunteers will manage the area, with assistance from shop staff. New signage incorporating an attractive logo will be incorporated at the premises.

In association with the launch of the new information hub, the Fakenham.info website has been redesigned to reflect the new logo and signage. Future ‘Fakenham.info’ Town Guides, produced by Fabcom, will also take on the new look to present a consistent image for the town’s information.
