Creative children at the Vancouver Quarter’s Saturday Club. Pictures: Ian Burt

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

At the Vancouver Quarter’s Saturday Club children created a hand mirror and card for someone important to them, while families had their picture taken in a pop-up studio.

It was the fifth consecutive year that professional photographer Matthew Usher helped capture the family love in the shopping centre, but it was the first year 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.”

More free family events coming up in the Vancouver Quarter include 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 and the April Saturday Club the following day where children can do some Easter crafts.
