England rugby legend Bill Beaumont is set to attract a scrum of fans when he visits Fakenham later this month.

The former national captain, who later became a regular on TV's A Question of Sport, will be at the Aldiss store from 11am-2pm on February 24 to introduce new fabrics from the Bill Beaumont Textiles collection.

Beaumont the rugby legend is well known, but many will be surprised at his long association with fabrics.

Now in its fourth generation, Bill Beaumont Textiles was founded in 1888 in Chorley, Lancashire, by the ex-rugby star's great grandfather.

Beaumont jnr took over the family business in 1998 and is now managing director.
