Youngsters from across Lowestoft have been recognised after a pilot project at the town’s central library was hailed a success.

Eight young people received arts awards at Lowestoft Library yesterday (Saturday, March 22) following more than five months of hard work.

The group took part in various arts activities and workshops at the library last year to achieve a Bronze Arts Award – including author events, creative writing, photography and comic book making.

And with this being the first time Suffolk Libraries has hosted an arts award, the youngsters – Saskia Pawlett, Morgan Pawlett, Harriet Brooks, Tom Brooks, Katie Angus, Hannah Precious, Neve Keable and Chloe Utting – were all praised as they collected their awards.

To achieve the bronze awards, which are a level one national qualification, the young people took part in an arts activity they enjoy, had to go to an arts event, research their arts hero or heroine and shared their skills with others.

Jane Rothon, arts advisor and assistant library manager at Lowestoft Library, said: “We are incredibly proud of this achievement both for Lowestoft Library and our eight young people. Everyone at Lowestoft Library was delighted when we were chosen for the pilot project and it was an exciting and challenging experience for everyone involved.”
