Explore-a-book is a brand-new book bench trail that is coming to west Norfolk this spring, funded by the Norfolk Strategic Fund, specifically to encourage people back into town centre areas and to help support those businesses adversely affected by the impact of Covid-19. The trail has been organised by the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk in partnership with Stories of Lynn and Kick the Dust.
The trail consists of seven benches, supplied by Wild in Art, who have produced trails in this country and abroad. These benches are already decorated by artists, and will be temporarily placed in landmark locations around King’s Lynn. A further three benches have been decorated by local artists with designs submitted by local young people and these will remain as permanent features in King’s Lynn, Hunstanton and Downham Market.
The Kick the Dust group developed the trail leaflet for Explore-a-book. They have contributed their ideas to how the trail will work, have chosen and researched the potential locations, and written the content, the aim is to get the maximum number of people engaged in the project.
We look forward to seeing your photos with the benches on social media, tag us with #ExploreABookWN
