Giant community eel: Fascinating fens are collaborating with Visit Ely and Babylon Arts to bring you a great community event inspired by the fens and Eel Day. We are asking everyone (adults and children) if they would like to help us create a very long “colour me in” eel. All you have to do is download the free picture. It’s then up to you be as imaginative and creative as you wish. The eel drawing can be decorated using anything including felt tips, crayons, glitter, collage, etc.
We will announce a date after lockdown when possible, and invite you all to come along to join it together, to hopefully be the biggest coloured eel ever. You don’t have to live in Ely to take part. When the time comes to get creative, why not share a photo on social media of your progress. You can do as many as you wish.
The finished picture can either be put in the Ely Tourist information letter box or scanned and emailed to us. The eel will be part of a exhibition at Ely Cathedral.
