King’s Lynn Town Deal Board held a special meeting at the College of West Anglia on Friday 26 January where students were invited to ask questions and share their thoughts on the multi-million pound Towns Fund investment in the town.

Local people are being invited to share their views on proposals that could breathe new life into the much-loved Custom House and transform a vacant riverfront site into a public space for everyone.

A project that has supported more than 400 15-30 year olds in King’s Lynn to gain skills, knowledge, and advice is set to work with even more young people across west Norfolk after government funding was secured for its continuation.

Pupils from Eastgate Academy and St Michael’s CofE Academy have been working on ideas for two art installations that will form part of the Town Deal Rail to River project.

Jane Hamilton, originally from Gayton, King’s Lynn, has been appointed by the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk as the new Learning and Engagement Officer at St George’s Guildhall and Creative Hub.

New faces on the King’s Lynn Town Deal Board will bring a new dynamic and fresh feel to proceedings, following the borough elections in May this year, and the recruitment of new private sector representatives.
