What is Fakenham Info Hub?
The Fakenham Info Hub delivers mostly free services and information to Fakenham residents, visitors and local businesses.
Fakenham Info Hub (FIH) was set up by Active Fakenham in 2016 and is now part of the Active Fakenham group of community organisations in the town. As such it is overseen by Active Fakenham although it is managed by local volunteers and has a large amount of autonomy. Any income and expenditure generated by FIH is accounted for through Active Fakenham. It was set up by volunteers and received a small start-up grant from the Fakenham Town Council. http://fakenham.info/
Established in 2013, Active Fakenham (AF) is a small local community group which beca
me a not for profit limited company in 2017. AF is overseen by a Steering Group, has a constitution and produces (non-audited) accounts, which are overseen by a local accountant (on a voluntary basis) and are submitted to Companies House each year. It has a Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer.
FIH has a base in Sweets’n’Things who donate the space, and staff the centre, for no charge. It has a Website which was produced and is managed by Wensum.net for no cost. We also have a Facebook page and Twitter account. This is all done by volunteers although we pay for some services if we raise funds for specific purposes.
We also lobby and campaign to promote Fakenham including for the restoration of the Fakenham
Tourist Information Centre which was closed a few years ago.
We would like to thank the many local people and organisations that have helped us in the past and continue to support us.
