Children take part in Hethel Big Draw

Dozens of children enjoyed an afternoon of sticky and sparkly fun as they took part in a free national initiative to encourage more youngsters to take an interest in art.

Children aged under 12 were invited to make their own spectacular works of art during a free event at Hethel Engineering Centre yesterday called It's a Stick Up.

Families were also given the chance to learn more about the centre with a series of special behind-the-scenes guided tours.

The activity day was organised by South Norfolk Council as part of the national Big Draw celebrations, which aims to get people drawing, inspire creativity and encourage social and cultural engagement.

Martin Wilby, deputy leader of South Norfolk Council, said it was the third year the council had joined in with the scheme.
