Colourful new library window
KESSINGLAND Library celebrated its first birthday this month with the unveiling of a new stained glass window.
The window was created by artist Teri Lockton with help from Kessingland residents.
Children at Kessingland Primary School produced drawings of features they would like included in the design and people living at a sheltered housing complex in the village were also involved with the project.
Ms Lockton said the children's ideas were incorporated into the design which features a sun, beach, boat and fishing
'I asked the children to do some drawings to give me inspiration and all of them used buckets and spades,' she said.

The library is part of a community complex at Marram Green which also includes offices for Kessingland Parish Council and a very sheltered housing scheme run by Flagship Housing.
A spokesman for Flagship Housing said: 'We are very keen for residents of the sheltered housing scheme to become involved in community events in Kessingland and this is a wonderful example of that.'
The apartments at Marram Green are available to people over the age of 55 with a connection to Suffolk. These can be purchased outright or through a shared equity scheme.
