45 for 45

In 2020, SI King’s Lynn are celebrating 45 years since the club was chartered.  Due to  COVID-19, our celebrations are taking place in a socially-distanced way, and we are being inventive in our approach.

The first member to mark the celebration was Corinne, who presented the club with a virtual bouquet of 45 flowers from her garden.  There might be more than 45 – feel free to count them all at: 45 flowers by Corinne
