They usually feature comedy characters such as muscle-bound lifeguards and bathing beauties.

But 'seaside Sally' boards created at a craft workshop at Cromer's Henry Blogg museum at the weekend took on a fairytale theme, with youngsters designing mermaids, pirates and knights in shining armour.

Run by museum manager Jacqui Palmer, the workshop coincided with an exhibition of holiday souvenirs entitled Keepsakes, Keyrings and Kiss Me Quick.

The display included items ranging from teapots and hats, to tiles salvaged from a sinking ship rescued by Cromer lifeboat.

Visitors had a chance to stage their own Punch and Judy show, and to add their own holiday memories to a notice board covered in post-it notes. Ms Palmer was helped at Saturday's workshop by University of East Anglia student Becky Fletcher, who is on a placement at Cromer as part of a master's in museum studies.
