Residents of Swaffham and the surrounding areas are being asked how they would like to use the proposed new Barn Centre in the town.

Mayor of Swaffham Jill Skinner said: “We feel that this is a tremendous opportunity for the whole area.

“The Barn is within walking distance of the town centre and has extensive facilities which could be used to bring a whole new dimension to the town.”
