One of the leveret sculptures currently featured in trail around Norwich pays a very special tribute to the founder of the 1st Old Catton Rainbows.
Pat Threadgold, whose Rainbow name is Crystal, first set up the group in 1989 and has also led the 2nd Old Catton Rainbows.
She retired in July after nearly 30 years, and in honour of her great dedication to the Rainbows, the 1st Old Catton Rainbows named their colourful leveret Crystal.
Pat, 73, said: 'It was a complete surprise that they decided to name the leveret after my Rainbow name and I am absolutely delighted.
'I started the 1st Old Catton group in 1989 and some of my original Rainbows are now heading up units as adult leaders, which is a wonderful.'
