Mural

The long-awaited mural (delayed due to Covid), designed and painted by the 'Time Turners' a group of youngsters delivering creative projects as part of the 'Stories of Lynn', has been painted on the siding of The Bridge Centre located in Clough Lane, King's Lynn. I am sure we all agree that this is an amazing piece of artwork, that represents both the diversity and scope of people who have contributed to the Armed Forces during the 20th and into the 21st century.
