Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden, at South Walsham in the Norfolk Broads, opened to the public on 19 April 1975. To mark the 40th anniversary, the garden team has embarked on a project to restore the West Garden. Former Fairhaven manager and Head Gardener, George Debbage has masterminded the first phase of the project, the restoration of a candelabra primula bed. Work has included stabilising the dyke edge, which has eroded over a number of years due to the incursion of high tides. Planting up the bed began on Friday 27 March.

The Grove, owned and run by the Graveling family since 1936, only opened its doors to the public for lunch and dinner under two years ago... and now, under chef Charlie Hodson, has been awarded a straight two rosettes for culinary excellence. It’s a far cry from the traditional seaside guest house image with which Cromer has long been associated and is a further indication that the town is firmly on the rise.
