Beautiful book benches appear around King's Lynn

Two local charities have come together to create a book bench trail around Lynn called Explore-a-book.

The beautiful creations feature the work of local artists aged 16 and below and are placed in landmark spots around the town.

Stories of Lynn,Wild in Art, and West Norfolk Council launched the trail, consisting of seven benches, on Friday.

Councillor Graham Middleton, cabinet member for business development, said: “This is a really exciting opportunity for local young people, from primary school age up to the age of 16 to get involved in a project to help support their local community.

"Their ideas and images captured on a bench that people can enjoy for years to come.It’s an opportunity to see our area through someone else’s eyes."

Rachel Williams, who works at Stories of Lynn said: “The next step is to get other young people involved in the design of the three permanent benches. There is so much to explore in the borough, I am really looking forward to seeing the finished designs. It’s not often individuals get a chance to participate in a project that well be around for a long time. I’m sure we’ll have lots of budding young artists in the borough who are keen to get involved with this competition.”

The benches are located in the Saturday Market Place, the Bus Station, outside the Majestic Cinema, King's Staithe Square, Clifton House, Red Mount Chapel and the Railway Station.
