The Great Bear Hunt returns to Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden, at South Walsham, on Saturday, March 21 and will run until the autumn.


The 10 bears carved by Fairhaven volunteer Andy Usher have been in hibernation over the winter and are ready for another season in the garden. There are also two additional bonus bears, recently carved by Andy, for visitors to discover.


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 six 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 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 is at South Walsham, signposted off the A47 at B1140 junction, half way between Norwich and Great Yarmouth. Garden entry is adult £7.50, concessions £6.95, children £3.95 and free for Fairhaven members and under 4s.


The garden is open daily from 10am to 5pm, and until 9pm on Wednesdays, from May to the end of August. Free entry to cafe bistro, provisions shop, gift shop and plant sales.


There is wheelchair access throughout the garden, including a Sensory Garden and an accessible boat for trips on the broad from April to October (additional charge). Visitors requiring special facilities are advised to telephone in advance, mobility scooters available.


Dogs are welcome on leads; small charge to cover poop scoop.
