In 2006, the shelter in Exchange Square was refurbished through councillor John Sigsworth’s mayor’s charity and local group Beccles Community Arts were asked to design something for the wall at the back of the shelter.

It was decided that three display boards should be installed to showcase artwork by pupils from local schools. The displays continued for some years but eventually stopped.

However the project has now been revived by Beccles town councillor and Pride in Beccles committee member Jula Janney.

She said: “As I am also the chairman of Beccles Community Arts, I jumped at the opportunity to get this project moving again.

“I was so proud and excited that the local schools were willing to participate and the photographs show how great they look in this location, making it bright and interesting.

“The displays are changed every three months to keep the shelter looking interesting and to showcase how talented our young people are.”

Work by Sir John Leman High School pupils has already been on display, and now the talents of Beccles Primary Academy’s after school art club are in the spotlight.

Next up will be Albert Pye, followed by St Benet’s Primary School.
