The Cromer and District Foodbank is to open a new distribution centre in Aylsham Children’s Centre on April 19.

The new centre is in addition to the Aylsham Parish Church distribution centre, which still operates on Mondays 9.30am to 11am.
Since it was founded in 2012 the Cromer foodbank has built up a strong support network for local people in financial crisis, working with over 70 partner agencies to offer food and advice across North Norfolk.
“We are extremely happy to be working with the Children’s centre in Aylsham to provide an essential service to clients in financial crisis” says Ella King, Project Manager “we are working closely with other organisations in Aylsham to help provide easier access for clients within a caring supportive environment”
