The chairman of Active Fakenham said that all the money raised by the sale of his new book will be reinvested back into Fakenham events.

Mr. Crook is launching his new book, Impressions on Fakenham this Friday, which will highlight the places and people in Fakenham.

The Market Town Initiative funded book showcases the racecourse, Pensthorpe, local businesses, sports clubs and many more.

Speaking ahead of the book's launch, Mr. Crook said: "All these events are run on a shoestring. So any money raised from the sales will go back into the activities, and will make them all more sustainable."

The book is already on sale at the Info Hub, but will have a official open launch event this Friday, December 13 at Fakenham Library.
