Then on Saturday, June 4 from 2pm to 7pm there will be a family fun day held at Millennium Park in Queens Road.

Local bands and acts will be entertaining while there will be a mixture of food vendors, craft stalls, games, a tug-of-war competition and much more.

"The events committee is made up of just five volunteers who have been planning the event for over a year," said events committee member Linda Jennings.

"Having looked through the archives for Fakenham we have not been able to find any previous event being held like this street party.

"I am sure the people of Fakenham will enjoy the events we have organised and support us in their hundreds as they have done in the past."
