More than 100 residents have 'pulled a funny face for the future' as part of a questionnaire that will shape a town plan.

More than 100 residents have “pulled a funny face for the future” as part of a questionnaire that will shape a town plan.

Townsfolk have until the end of the month to fill in Harleston's Have Your Say questionnaire that will form a 20-year vision for the south Norfolk market town.

Residents who fill in a form are also being asked to pull a face for a black and white photography exhibition that will take place at the weekend.

So far, 100 Harleston people have had their picture taken for a display at the Swan Hotel between 9am and 12.30pm on Saturday.

Ian Carstairs, chairman of the Have Your Say steering group, said: “When we look at old photographs of 100 years ago, everyone always looks so serious. We wanted to make sure that a record of people having fun could be passed on to the future as we set about producing a town action plan which will help shape the Harleston of tomorrow.”

The independent group, which is supported by grants from Norfolk Rural Community Council and Harleston Town Council, aims to give everyone a chance to play a part in shaping the town's future.

The deadline for questionnaires to be returned to Harleston Information Plus, in Exchange Street, is July 31. A town plan is set to be drawn up in the autumn.
