The Fakenham & District Sun is a very familiar sight in homes and offices around the town, “covering news and local events and promoting better facilities though the area“, as it says on its own front page. This independent monthly newspaper is delivered free of charge to addresses in a 10-mile radius of Fakenham – around 11,000 copies of it!
First printed back in 1996, the paper currently has a print run of about 12,000 copies per month. It carries editorial – both local news and general interest items – with a different approach from other local newspapers; its articles are always relevant to Fakenham and its surrounding villages and the focus is firmly set on the immediate area and its people.
The Sun is truly local, being published by Fakenham & District Publishing Ltd and printed on the Fakenham Industrial Estate by Newprint & Design Ltd. It’s funded purely through advertising revenue and the fact that it has been in circulation for so many years is testament to the popularity of the paper as an advertising medium as well as for local news. The publication has always been a supporter of Fakenham businesses and charities – and they in turn continue to use the paper as a proven channel to the local public.
Apart from door-to-door deliveries, The Sun is made available at selected village post offices and shops as well as via Fakenham and Wells Libraries, Fakenham Garden Centre , Fakenham Sports Centre and the Fakenham Connect offices.
