A fashion show at Fakenham Racecourse to raise funds for Cranmer House care home and promote shopping in the town.

It will be on May 17 and is being run in association with Fakenham Town Council.

Organiser Gilly Foortse said: 'Being an independent retailer nowadays isn't a walk in the park. Competition from the multiples and the internet, plus rising costs mean fewer people are willing to set up their own business in fashion retail. However, there are many ladies who prefer the individual taste and attention that such independent retailers offer.

'In Fakenham we are lucky to have four independent fashion shops; two independent shoe retailers and a wonderful bridal shop.'

The event starts at 2.30pm with the show at 4pm. For more information or to buy tickets call 01328 864556 or email gillyfoortse @hotmail.co.uk
