Fakenham Town champions
Active Fakenham is working with local organisations to recruit and develop a network of Town Champions. These are a first point of contact for people looking to learn more about an activity and they also promote their own area of interest. You can speak or make contact directly with the person to find out more about their area of interest.
What do Fakenham Town Champions do?
- Be a first point of contact for your activity (e.g. if someone is interested in folk dancing or singing they could contact that person)
- Signpost to relevant activities. So they do not only promote their own organisation but are aware of other organisations or groups in the town who may be able to provide the activity.
- Organise taster sessions in partnership with Active Fakenham of their activity to showcase it
