A new exhibition of artwork by residents who have received support from a Lynn-based homeless charity has been opened this week.

Borough mayor Colin Manning, pictured above, front third left, joined Purfleet Trust staff and clients, councillors and project for the opening of the display in the town hall on Tuesday.

The works were displayed there for two days, before being transferred to the West Norfolk Council offices in Chapel Street, where they will remain on show during normaloffice hours until Christmas.

The project is part of the £2 million Townscape Heritage Initiative, funded by the borough council and the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

The artworks focus on the part of the town covered by the programme, which alone has more than 30 listed buildings, as well as the historic core centred on the Town Hall and the Tuesday Market Place.

In total, there are more than 90 listed buildings in Lynn’s conservation area, including seven grade one and 15 grade two locations.
