I used to live, teach and do my politics in Fakenham for a number of years and despite moving away from the North Norfolk town, still go there to shop regularly.
Now I know I am biased because the people of Fakenham once elected me with 66% of the vote, but I think Fakenham is a cracking place to live. Sadly I was cut up by a Tesco delivery lorry whilst I was there travelling along a road that Tesco promised they wouldn't use, but otherwise its a safe place to live with all the shops you would need.
So why eulogise ? Well I have been trying all week to get hold of Wii Fit, the latest offering from Nintendo, and it appears that there is a shortage of them right across the country. You cannot even order them of the internet. So it is another feather in the cap of Fakenham that I should go in to Woolworths today and be able to buy Wii Fit when you cannot get it anywhere else in the country.
