As we continue to spend most of our time at home in the fight against the spread of Covid-19, many businesses local to Fakenham have been finding innovative ways to adapt and help by delivering to our doors.

Although these are very difficult and worrying times, many local businesses have adapted and changed the way they provide their services to ensure that people are able to receive essential products – and some treats to keep the spirits up.

“Active Fakenham is doing its bit to support local businesses and the community, including a series of articles,” explains Richard Crook. “The first was a couple of weeks ago and looked at essential food shops that were open in the town, the second is this article giving examples of how people are adapting to delivering their goods and services, and the third will look at what is being delivered online and will range from yoga classes to photography competitions and more. “In addition, we have put more details on our website and social media, as well as set up a Facebook group: Keep Fakenham Active, where people can share ideas about how to stay busy and amused during the lockdown period. We are keen to support any positive initiatives.”

Here are some of the local businesses offering delivery:
