Edith is the name of our duck which is entering the Grand Norwich Duck Race on Sunday 26 August. The race raises money for Norfolk Charity Break

Susan Hendry, who painted Edith, is pictured with our duck in the hotel’s Edith Cavell Room.

Edith is a tribute to Edith Cavell; this year is the 100th anniversary of the unveiling of the Edith Cavell monument in Tombland and the opening of the former Edith Cavell Home for District Nurses (now part of the Maids Head).
