Families are being urged to look out for the seagulls at the seaside this summer - as part of a fun new art trail to explore.

The yarn bomb event called Felix the Seagull and Friends is taking place at Felixstowe throughout the school summer holidays, starting on Wednesday, July 21.

Talented Debby Cloud from The Wool Baa in Hamilton Road has been busy creating ten wonderful new woolly creations for the trail.

Earlier this year Debby decorated the tops of Royal Mail post-boxes around the town with a series of knitted creations to make people smile.

Starting from Felixstowe railway station, the trail runs through the seafront, ending at the Visit Felixstowe Tourist Information Centre beach hut.

Along the way, people can search for the 10 seagulls, collect their names and then work out the big puzzle word. Completed forms can then be posted in the box at The Wool Baa or the VF beach hut - with prizes to be won.

A free ‘Felix the Seagull and Friends’ trail sheet is available from the Wool Baa, P and K Home Interiors, King’s of Felixstowe, Ruby & Scarlet, Stillwater Books, Hills Jewellers, Suffolk Living, Livia’s Boutique and the Visit Felixstowe hut.
