At Tuesday’s Advance Swaffham Action Group meeting, David Wickerson stepped down after serving as the group’s chair since the launch of the Advance Swaffham town plan in 2009.
Mr Wickerson, who is also a town councillor, had successfully led the development and delivery of the town plan and the award-winning partnership working with Swaffham Town Council. His successor, Dennis Tallon a director of the Iceni Partnership said “David has made a huge contribution to Advance Swaffham and I am delighted to be taking over from him at such an exciting time for the programme.
We are organising a series of major festivals in Swaffham this year, and we are looking at how Advance Swaffham could develop into our neighbourhood plan as required by the Localism Act.” The first of the festivals this year is a cycling and walking festival featuring at least one event each day from 1-10 June.
