Hawk & Owl Trust

Hawk and Owl Trust,
Turf Moor Road,
Sculthorpe, Fakenham,
Norfolk  NR21 9GN
Tel: 01328 856 788

Hawk and Owl Trust is a national charity. We create and manage nesting, roosting and feeding habitats for owls and birds of prey; we carry out practical research to further our understanding of their conservation and behaviour and we welcome visitors to our wildlife reserves, education centres and outreach projects.

As top predators, birds of prey and owls are a barometer of the health of the environment. Conserving them involves conserving their prey, and the whole chain of life that supports them and their habitats. It is a ‘bottom-up’ process and we demonstrate this practically on our reserves where the abundance of raptors, owls and other wildlife bear testament to the conservation methods we advocate and practice.

Local Charity Event – 9th & 11th August

clicsargentA locally-based team of youngsters who’ve joined National Citizen Service are organising two charity events. They’ve got one planned for Fakenham Tesco on Tuesday 9th August and another in Fakenham Market on Thursday 11th August. They’re both to raise awareness and funds for CLIC Sargent.

Here’s a message from the group…

“Please come along to Tesco in Fakenham on Tuesday 9th August for face painting, tombola, your favourite characters in fancy dress and much more family fun all in aid of CLIC Sargent, a charity who offers help and support to children and their families who are suffering with cancer. Also in Fakenham on Thursday 11th similar family fun at Fakenham Market. All ages welcome, please help us make a difference!”

Their Event Page on Facebook is here. Let them know you’re going (there’s a button on their page) and please help them promote it by sharing the event page with your FB Friends.

CLIC Sargent is a charity which supports young cancer sufferers. It was formed in 2005 after a successful merger between CLIC and Sargent Cancer Care for Children.

National Citizen Service (NCS) is a not-for profit social enterprise open to 15 to 17 years-olds, set up to provide challenges through social action and build skills for work and life.

Fakenham Fair 2016

fakenham-fair-2016-finalSaturday 27th August from 2pm to 6pm in Fakenham Town Centre. Street entertainers, music, food, charity stalls and fairground rides.

Fakenham Fair organisers Kick Start Fakenham have listened to many view points over the last few years and has decided to move this year’s event into the town centre. It’s hoped that by making this move traders will want to be a part of this event and really become involved to ensure that the town is absolutely brought alive on the day.

This year the event will have a circus theme and once again adds a mini food festival to the mix. Stalls will line up along the street in the town centre and entertainers will feature around the town. Your comperes for the day are the guys from North Norfolk Radio.

Please note that Fakenham farmers’ Market will run from 8am to 12 noon and a road closure will be in place all day in the town centre. See our parking page for a guide to where to leave your car.
