Gaywood Park students are pictured in May 1979 leaving Lynn railway station

Pupils from Lynn’s Gaywood Park School made their TV debut in May 1979 when they appeared on the children’s programme Magpie – and put their very own company, Achievers’ Crafts, firmly on the map.

Part of a Young Enterprise scheme, to teach youngsters about business, the company had to raise its own capital by encouraging people to become shareholders as well as appointing a managing director, production manager, factory staff and salesmen. The youngsters were pictured as they left Lynn railway station with examples of their products which included mug trees and spice racks.
