Win a copy of Molly Moo, the independent cow

Children from Fairhaven Primary School helped Norwich artist, Sandra Derry launch her second children's book, Molly Moo, the independent cow at Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden.

Sandra read Molly Moo to the children, along with her first book Curly Sheep's Bad Hair Day. Molly Moo tells the story of an adventurous cow, who decides to try and find the milking parlour, without her farmer's help.

Sandra Derry said: “I am really pleased that the children from Fairhaven Primary School were able to join me for the reading and help bring Molly Moo to life. I would also like to thank Fairhaven Garden for hosting the event.”

  • Fairhaven Gardening Team Embarks on Annual Leaf Collection and Recycling Project

    Fairhaven Woodland Water Garden's gardeners and volunteers have embarked on their major winter leaf collection and dyke clearance project.

    The gardening team collects all the autumn's fallen leaves, which are then deposited in retaining bays where they gradually rot and are recycled into nature's fertiliser – leaf soil. The leaf soil is put to work in the garden and is also sold in the plant sales area.

    Ian Guest, Head Gardener, Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden explained: “The leaf collection is an important annual job. Fairhaven has always been managed organically and the resulting leaf soil provides a rich fertiliser for the garden.”

    Dastardly deeds are not something you automatically associate with Norfolk, but local author Chris Crowther has gone even further and used the tranquil magic of Broadland as the setting for his series of whodunits.

    The sleuth in these stories is Jack Fellows, a navigation ranger with the Broads Authority, who spends his days patrolling the waterways, assisting boaters and enforcing the river by-laws. Like many rangers, he has a police background, in his case as a Detective Superintendant with Scotland Yard, and a copper’s instinct that looks beyond the carefree boating to a rather more sinister world of strange happenings and questionable deaths.
