Entitled Capture Swaffham, the year-long contest, which was launched at Swaffham Museum, is part of a programme of commemorative events being organised by the club, which held its first meeting in June 1969.

Other highlights will include a tree planting at the town's community garden on February 2, as well as a charity tea dance, a town trail and a 1960s-themed anniversary dance.
