Welcome to Fakenham and District Community Archive a website for those who enjoy a nostalgic look back at Fakenham and district in less recent times. Our pictures and memories can take us there in a way that nothing else can.
We are an enthusiastic group of volunteers who are dedicated to building a digital archive of photographic and other items for people of the local community to discover and enjoy. This website features only a sample of the many thousands of items in the community archive, so please contact us should you like to see more or pop along to one of our monthly meetings.
We meet regularly in the Trinity Room at Fakenham Parish Church on
the last Monday of each month (except Bank Holidays) between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm, where the complete archive is available to view. Some of our pictures await positive identification! Perhaps you could help put some names to those faces?
During monthly sessions our friendly team of volunteers are always on
hand to scan pictures and gather information, so if you’d like to share
your memories or pictures with us we'd be very pleased to see you. Light refreshments are usually on offer in the form of tea, coffee and biscuits.
So why not come along and join us, as we enjoy a sociable couple of
hours chatting and sharing our memories of yesterday?
