Many of the fabulous local independent businessses that we proudly showcase are closed due to Covid-19 to help safeguard their staff and customers and following Government Advice.

For instance we have Solicitors and Financial Advisers working from home still being able to advise their clients by telephone, email and video conferencing but we also have some business members who have found innovative ways to still operate their businesses as Lisa Redford who teaches Guitar and is also a Vocal Coach and Tim Mason who teaches the Guitar are both using technology such as Skype…

The gardening team and volunteers at Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden, are working on their annual winter hazel coppicing campaign. Every year they coppice a section of hazel on rotation, using a battery operated chainsaw to minimise the noise. This ancient woodland management practice involves cutting young stems down to a stump. The tree then regrows and is cut again on a seven year cycle. All the young stems are used. They are sold in plant sales as pea sticks and bean poles and they are also being bundled up into faggots, which will build up the paths on sections of the Broads and Ranworth Walks.

Notcutts Norwich Garden Centre have donated end of season bulbs to Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden. The gift was facilitated by Ray Etheridge, one of Fairhaven's regular garden volunteers, who works at Notcutts. Ray explained: “Every year Notcutts donates end of season stock to charity. I suggested that Fairhaven would be a good location for our bulbs and was delighted to be able to bring four sacks of daffodils, along with tulips, and crocus to plant in the garden.” Fairhaven Gardener Lydia Sutton is pictured with Ray planting some of the bulbs.
