Proud parents attended an event which saw their children's artwork go on display at a town railway station.
Drawings of buildings and landmarks in the town created by members of the 3rd Thetford Beavers are on display in the waiting room on platform one of Thetford station. About 17 children and some of their parents were present at the event on Saturday, February 18 with the youngsters, aged from six to eight-years-old, attaining their Community Impact, World Challenge and Creative Activity badges because of their drawings.
Simon Malone, who is a member of The Friends of Thetford Station - which has worked over the past five years to maintain the station platform garden - said: 'The waiting room now benefits from this colourful display, which compliments posters and local photographs put up by the volunteers and which has transformed the room from a rather featureless room to a place of interest.'
