New colourful art unveiled at Hunstanton beach




Those visiting the beach in a West Norfolk seaside town should keep their eyes peeled for new artwork.

Two more panels of colourful tiles have now been completed on the sea wall at Hunstanton after the project was first started in 2012.

The Queens Diamond Jubilee was the first design theme followed by Memories of Hunstanton and later Sea Creatures. These panels were also made with help from local design studio Paint Me Ceramics.

The large ship mural and the Turtle scene were both created by students from Smithdon High School and the other sea creature tiles were created by local people and visitors to the town during the last two years.

These new tiles can be found on the sea front near the Sailing Club and the beach huts.

The project is sponsored by Hunstanton and District Festival of Art (HDFA) and was the brainchild of local artist Kate Dunbar.

Christine Earnshaw, chairman of the HDFA, thanked Martin Turner, Chris Ellis, Jim Worley and Mike Sherwood of Hunstanton Men’s Shed for putting the tiles in place and presented them with a donation for new equipment to help with their work.

The Men’s Shed is a community group based in the café next to Hunstanton Library for anyone who likes to work with their hands.
