Families are being invited to take part in two special mosaic workshops to help decorate a model spitfire.
The workshops are being held ahead of the launch of a trail of the famous planes which will be on display throughout the town from next month until September.
42 F King’s Lynn Squadron Air Training Corps is organising the trail as the squadron gears up to exercise their Freedom of the Borough for the first time on July 18. The squadron will parade along South Quay to King Staithe square at 12 noon, before a flypast by a Grace Spitfire at 1pm.
The workshops to decorate one of the two spitfires sponsored by the Vancouver Quarter will take place between 11am and 4pm on Saturday 20 June and Saturday 4 July next to Costa Coffee and opposite Wilkinson on New Conduit Street. A third date, yet to be confirmed, will be announced in due course.
Abbie Panks, centre manager said: “There are places available for 30 minute sessions throughout both days. As well as encouraging both adults and children over 5 to help decorate the spitfire, people will also be able to watch the other spitfire come to life with our appointed artist also working in situ at the same time.
“The artist behind our spitfire designs, Carolyn Ash, is a well-respected local artist and has also just completed one of this year's GoGo Dragons (GoGo Mosaic) for Norwich which launches in June.”
