Artwork Displays in memory of WW1 fishermen

One of our pupils, Lauren, has had her art work selected to be on public display outside the Lowestoft branch of ASDA. The artwork is in memory of WW1 fishermen who risked their lives by locating mines and despite the danger of being caught if one of the mine exploded, continued to fish and provide supplies to the local area.

Lauren, and others, artwork was one of a number of pieces which were recently unveiled at various locations across Lowestoft.
