The bucket and spade are a summer holiday classic, and now, to celebrate Norfolk Day, families are being encouraged to complete a sculpture trail featuring giant versions of the holiday favourites.
Organised by Richardson's Family Holidays, the giant sculptures have been designed by pupils from primary schools across Norfolk, including Rackheath Primary School, Bignold Primary and Nursery School, Browick Road Primary and Ormiston Herman Academy.
Located at various points across the county including Wroxham, Stalham, Hemsby and Lowestoft, the sculpture trail has been created in partnership with Break, which helps provide children's homes and supports children in care.
Greg Munford, chief executive of Richardson's, said he hoped families would enjoy the trail and take pictures of themselves completing it.
He said: "We are delighted to be celebrating Norfolk Day by supporting not only our partnership with Break but also involving the local community and engaging with local schools.
