New Maids Head Hotel Mugs Feature City College Student's Illustration

Hannah Barnes won a competition earlier this year, run in conjunction with City College Norwich Art and Design students, for an illustration of the Maids Head Hotel to be printed on new mugs, which are now in the hotel’s 84 bedrooms, as part of the tea and coffee making facility. The mugs are also on sale in hotel reception.

Hannah has now completed  the Art and Design Foundation Course at City College and is off to Falmouth University. She said: "It's lovely to see the illustration on the finished product. My Maids Head mug will definitely have pride of place in my room at Falmouth."

Hannah is pictured below in the Wine Press Restaurant at the hotel with the new mugs. 

The Maids Head Hotel is a proud business member of All Things Norfolk and for more details about the Hotel please visit www.maidsheadhotel.co.uk

  • Opticians Dipple & Conway go quackers for children's charity

    Norwich, Swaffham and Diss opticians Dipple & Conway are urging the county’s business community to show their creativity this summer in aid of high-profile children’s charity, Break.

  • River Wensum at Night

    Last month we looked at some of the photographic possibilities along the river Wensum in Norwich between Carrow Road and Fye Bridge Street during daylight hours. This time we will retrace our route by night and look for fresh possibilities.

    We start down by the river near to the football stadium at Carrow Road. Similarly to during the day we can make the most of reflections in the water. At night, these reflections can sometimes be even clearer to see. Night photography is slightly more difficult than during the day due to the low light levels. So, you need to make sure that you have a tripod to mount your camera on. If not, you won't be able to hold the camera steady enough to get a good photo. As always, keep the ISO low (100-200). The aperture (if you can choose it yourself) would be around f/5.6-f/11 depending on the scene. As with landscape photography you want a small aperture to keep most of the scene sharp. However, you may need to open it up a little to allow more light in.

    The family and friends of 18-year-old Tom Pottle, who sadly passed away in January 2017 from cardiac arrest, fundraised in his memory to purchase a lifesaving defibrillator. As a family they decided that they wanted a central location which would serve people of all ages, day and night.
