The Worst Things in Fakenham, Norfolk*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Fakenham.

The Worst Things
  • There aren't many places for young people to go.
  • becky dove
  • the school is rubbish Bubs hits people
  • Shannon Cooper, what a sket. Plus, the same ugly mugs hanging 'round day in, day out.
  • most of it is crap the chavy kids that look like there gunna stab you or just club ya head in
  • Rainbow
  • Everythin, all there is in fakenham is the bowling alley which in't too bad
  • Narrow minded bigoted racist community. Dumb as posts.
  • Townies who drive round and round in thier mum's fiestas with thier streos turned up and their girlfriends who they have just picked up from school. It can be very insular, and some of the people are very ignorant as to the fact that Fakenham is not the only place in the world.
  • 20 mile per hour speed limits have appeared all over Fakenham along with cycle lanes that are wider than the road (spring 2000) Nobody sticks to the speed limit and the cycle lanes are used once a week on Thursdays when one granny gets her bike out to go to the weekly market. Still the coppers have a really easy target for on-the-spot speeding fines when their beer fund is getting low!
  • having to grow up there
  • My mum was the only person who could get lost in Fakenham!
  • serious lack of intelligent conversation from the general population.
  • My friend Angie says do not have any breakfast item at the swimming pool as it will give you the worst disentry that you will ever experience. Also avoid the fruit shop on the market place for having rotten and over priced products.
  • The cinema being closed
  • Little for singles to do, especially the under 20's, 30's, 40's etc. in the evenings.
  • Traffic problems in Bridge Street, but Norfolk County Council not interested.
  • Business rates driving small businesses out of town.
  • It closes on Wednesdays, it must rate as one of the most boring places on Earth.
