If you wish to contribute to the Beacon, or this website, please contact the Parish Office.
The Beacon was originally created in the 1860’s as a church magazine. Old copies of the magazine can be viewed at Fakenham Library and the Gasworks Museum. In 2001 it was decided to make the Beacon a church and community magazine, and distribute it free. Today it has a print run of 4,000 and is delivered monthly to every house in Fakenham. It can also be collected from church, sent by post or accessed online. Advertising pays the cost of it being printed by local printers Newprint and Design Ltd – www.newprintanddesign.co.uk. It has been widely admired in the county and Diocese as a good example of a church magazine, locally created with a wide range of information. As a church and community magazine it is well read and has up to date local information.
Advertising costs start at £18 per month. Also there are four colour pages which can be used for advertising at a higher rate. If you wish to apply for advertising please contact Linda Frost via her email: email@example.com or via our website online contact form. These rates are very competitive and provide a guaranteed readership of over 10,000.
