The Sprowston art trail has been reorganised and will now run for the first two weeks of the summer holidays.

With lots of sculptures and art dotted around the neighbourhood, there will be a map available on social media so everyone knows what to look out for.

The event, organised by the Sprowston Youth Engagement Programme, was postponed from earlier in the year due to the covid-19 pandemic after lots of hard work was put in by groups and schools.

Visitors are asked not to touch the sculptures and to maintain social distancing while enjoying the exhibits.

The SYEP youth groups will also be up and running from July 21.

Numbers will be limited so parents will need to contact organisers beforehand to avoid disappointment. All the activities will be held outside in the vicarage garden, so all sessions will depend on the weather.

Measures including a one-way system and sanitiser stations will be introduced and social distancing will be adhered to, but Clare Lincoln stressed: “Although all this has been put in place we are still confident that we can deliver fun activities and sessions will be enjoyable.”

To thank all the community volunteers who have worked so hard during lockdown, the group will be holding Grease-themed community cinema evenings on August 1 and 3.

The event will be by invitation only and is another example of the hard work this group puts in for the community, including keeping its virtual sessions going throughout the lockdown.
