Dereham has many assets and many things going for it as a place to live and a place to visit, yet these are not fully appreciated and more could be done to promote the town and its virtues to potential visitors. Although Dereham has a very strong shopping offer, free car parking and a twice weekly market, the town does not promote these assets across Norfolk. If we can attract more town visitors, the existing shops and restaurants will flourish and we will be able to attract other national brands.
The About Dereham Partnership consists currently of dedicated volunteers who will put energy and commitment into the overall aim of improving the image of Dereham. Our adopted mission is:
“To promote and contribute to Dereham as an economically successful and culturally vibrant centre: a good place to live and a great place to visit.”
We hold regular partnership meetings every two months. All community groups and organisations are invited to attend and find out more about what we do and to have a say. All of the organisers are volunteers.
