'Thank you, King's Lynn', says lighting firm in last of NHS tribute displays





One of Lynn's tallest buildings was lit up last night in the fourth and last, for now, of a series of tributes to the work of the NHS during the coronavirus crisis.

The grain silo at the town's docks was the setting for the display devised by events lighting company Jak Ropa Professional.

And they say they are planning an even bigger spectacle over the coming weeks.

The display, which came after the weekly Clap for Carers, followed similar displays at the Old Hunstanton lighthouse, the Bawsey ruins and the Palm Paper plant in recent weeks.

The scale of the building means the projection would have been visible not only across large parts of Lynn, but also in communities on the other side of the River Great Ouse.

The firm says it has been overwhelmed by the response it has received from the public to the shows, which was perhaps reflected in the "Thank You King's Lynn message" that formed part of last night's display.

Officials hope the public response to the shows will turn into increased business once the crisis is over, and say they also have another major project in the pipeline.

A spokesman said: "We are planning one mystery site in a few weeks time dedicated to everyone in the UK."

He claimed it would be "one of the boldest statements a Events Lighting and AV company has ever done before, purely for a worldwide crisis."
