Discover Lowestoft, on behalf of Lowestoft Vision, is providing a new experience for families to enjoy throughout the summer - a ‘Monster Hero Safari’, a story-trail.
Launching on Monday 28 July, visitors to our town will be invited to search the streets for 10 cute and colourful MonsterHeroes. Using only smartphones, the Safari allows you to learn each of the MonsterHero’s name, story, and superpowers. Once all 10 MonsterHeroes are found, a free e-book, that tells the story of their first team-up, will be unlocked. There will be a £2 entrance fee to take part, and proceeds will go toward NHS Charities Together. Safari works by utilising contactless NFC technology and QR codes, without the need for players to download or sign up to anything, they simply need to tap or scan to play.
Over 100 Business Improvement Districts and councils across the UK are taking part in the MonsterHero Safari project, which has been sponsored by Wild in Art, with the aim of raising over £100k for NHS Charities Together. In times of great stress, this project aims to provide the local community with a memorable experience that will bring a smile to the community of Lowestoft.
Amie Mullen, Lowestoft Vision BID Manager said: “We have organised a number of summer trails in our town and we know they are loved by visitors and residents alike. Therefore we are delighted to be involved in this extra special trail this year, to help raise money for a wonderful cause.
“It’s a safe and enjoyable way for families to enjoy a day out in Lowestoft.”
Coordinating the national project is Martin Blackwell, former CEO of ATCM and the Charity Retail Association who said “When I heard about the concept it just resonated with me and I knew I had to support it. I loved the idea of heroes; the idea of a “safari on the high street”! I just thought, if something fun like this can help make families feel good about going back out onto the high street and raise money for such a worthy cause then let’s go for it.”

Suffolk Highways are planning to carry out bridge maintenance work to Mutford Lock Bridge, on A1117 Bridge Road, Lowestoft. The work is programmed to take place from 27 July and will continue for 5 nights, working between 8pm and 6am each night. A temporary overnight road closure will be required from Saltwater Way to Commodore Road roundabout during this time, to ensure the safety of their team and the travelling public.
The work will involve maintenance painting to sections of the bridge deck where the existing paint system has failed.
For the duration of the road closure, traffic will be diverted via, Victoria Road, Waveney Drive, A12, A47, Peto Way, Normanston Drive and vice versa.
If we need to make major changes to our work dates, due to bad weather or other delays beyond our control, Suffolk Highways will update the information signs on site.
A plan showing the diversion route for these works is available on their website. When they close the road and put a diversion in place, the route needs to be accessible to vehicles of all shapes and sizes. Suffolk Highways make their diversions as clear as possible by placing appropriate signing along the route. The latest updates on our works can be found on their website at"Temporary road closures for Suffolk Highways roadworks” and on One.Network website.
There may be times that essential emergency works are required to take place on the highway network without advanced notice – you can follow Suffolk Highways on Twitter for the latest emergency roadwork updates.
