An annual summer trail is set to make a splash once more as it makes a welcome return to Lowestoft.

From next Saturday, July 22 people in Lowestoft will be able to discover the stars of the town as a brand new summer trail is unveiled.

The search to find 10 new starfish launches next weekend as 'The Stars of Lowestoft Trail' returns.

With 10 starfish hiding in Lowestoft town centre for visitors and families to discover, the summer trail is being delivered by Lowestoft Vision - the Business Improvement District for the town - along with support from local business sponsors.

The popular trail provides a free, fun and entertaining activity throughout the summer, with those taking part encouraged to collect a map from a number of shops in the town to help them on their quest.

Each starfish contains a letter and after every starfish has been found they will reveal an anagram which must be unscrambled to be in with a chance of winning a prize.

As well as this, six stamps have been hidden within Lowestoft town centre and can be collected for an extra chance to win a prize.

Completed trail maps must be handed into Lowestoft Library where entrants can collect a medal, subject to availability.

The headline sponsor for this year's summer trail is Richardson’s Family Entertainment Centre.

Greg Munford, chief executive of Richardson’s Leisure Limited, said: "As a leisure and tourism business in Lowestoft we are delighted to support Lowestoft Vision and the wider local community.

"We are looking forward to the trail and attracting more families to the town over the summer."

Danny Steel, Lowestoft Vision chairman, said: "We would like to say a huge thank you to all our business sponsors and BID businesses for their support and we can’t wait to see everyone enjoying the trail this summer."

The starfish have been hand carved by DK Fibreglass and designed and hand painted by artist Mark Harper of Harper Art Services.
