  • Head to Fairhaven Garden for The Great Bear Hunt

    Families are invited to visit Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden, at South Walsham, this summer and go on The Great Bear Hunt.

    Fairhaven volunteer Andy Usher has carved six bears out of wood from the garden and hidden them next to trees. Armed with a trail map, showing location clues, families can have fun hunting the bears, learn about the trees in the garden and make up names for the bears.

    Andy Usher explained: “I have volunteered in the garden for the last four years. I am chainsaw qualified, bought a carving saw and began experimenting with creating animals. This led to my idea to carve the bears out of Fairhaven wood and give families a fun summer activity. All the bears are next to well-known trees and the idea is for children to discover some of the species that make up the woodland garden, as well as enjoy hunting the bears.” 

  • Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden New 'Essential Essentials' Provisions Shop

    Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden, at South Walsham, has opened a small provisions shop in its tearoom to provide 'essential essentials' for local residents and visitors on boating and self-catering holidays in the area.

    Louise Rout, Fairhaven Garden Manager explained: “We were very sad when our village shop closed last September. Some villagers asked us if we were going to run a shop, but we don't have enough room. However when visitors on boating holidays came up from South Walsham Broad at Easter and asked if we sold bread or milk, we decided that we would experiment with a small range of 'essential essentials' for visitors on holiday and also our local residents. If demand grows, we can always expand the range and bring in items like cut ham."
