An organisation which works to promote local business in Fakenham and the surrounding area will fold next month unless new volunteers come forward to run it.

FABCOM (Fakenham Area Business Community) was established in 2012 by photographer Keith Osborn and website designer Steve Hall to promote businesses in Fakenham and within a 12-mile radius of the town through a range of festivals and events.

It encourages businesses and residents to do business locally and facilitates informal and friendly business networking.

Mr Hall and Mr Osborn have appealed to traders to take on the running of FABCOM.

In a statement on the FABCOM website, Mr Hall said: 'After nearly five years, Keith and I have both decided to stand down as directors of this not-for-profit company.

'If you think this organisation is worth soldiering on with, you need to raise your head above the parapet before we pull up the drawbridge.'
