Up on the Roof a singing scaffolder has been delighting shoppers and residents in Lynn town centre.

Adam Watson, 32, has been causing quite a stir with his silky tones as he puts up the temporary scaffolding around St Nicholas Chapel.

People have been stopping to listen to Lynn man Mr Watson and his colleagues at Rise Scaffold Services as they sing from the rafters.

Mr Watson, who delighted shoppers while working on the town centre re-development, has appeared on television news this week with his singing.

He said: “I’ve been surprised by the reaction - it’s a bit weird really. Everywhere I have worked I’ve always sung. “We have a sing song to make the day go quicker.”

Mr Watson, who grew up in Lynn, sings anything from Queen to Otis Reading.

Work has started on a £2.7 million renovation scheme on the 600-year-old church.

Under the major building project, the chapel will be re-roofed in order to preserve carved angels and a kitchenette and toilet facilities will be installed. The scheme will also include a new visitor centre.

Money for the project has been contributed by the Churches Conservation Trust, Friends of St Nicholas Chapel and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
