Mother’s Day events reflect a special day

Children showed their love for the special people in their lives during two special Mother’s Day events in King’s Lynn town centre on Saturday.

The Vancouver Quarter’s popular Saturday Club saw children create a beautiful hand mirror and card for someone important to them, while families also came together during the day to have their picture taken in a pop-up studio.

It was the fifth consecutive year that professional photographer Matthew ‪Usher‬ has helped capture the family love in the shopping centre but it was the first year that families received a printed picture to give as a present on Mothering Sunday.

Susannah Rayner, Vancouver Quarter events co-ordinator, said: “Our Mother’s Day workshop was very popular and it was great to see the children making some truly terrific hand-made gifts.

“Our Mother’s Day photoshoot was also a huge hit with those families who had booked an appointment and Matthew got some fantastic pictures that I’m sure will make a great keepsake for everyone.”

There are plenty of other free family-friendly events coming up in the Vancouver Quarter.
Susannah continued: “There will be an Easter Egg Trail on Good Friday (April 19) where children will need to collect a special map before heading round the town centre looking for the hidden eggs.

“We will follow this up the next day with our April Saturday Club which will be packed with creativity and see children making something lovely for Easter.“
