Maids Head Hotel City of Ale Boost for Fairhaven Boathouse Restoration

We are supporting the restoration of Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden’s 19th century thatched boathouse, during the Norwich City of Ale festival 2014. The hotel will be donating 5p to the boathouse project, for every pint of Maids Head Ale, Woodforde’s Wherry and Flagondry sold at the Maids Head Bar, from 22 May to 1 June.

Just over £3,000 has been donated since the Fairhaven public appeal to raise £15000, by sponsoring sheafs of sedge or reed, was launched at the end of April to help complete the restoration of one of the last remaining traditional wet boathouses on the Broads. It costs £7 to sponsor a sheaf of reed, £10 for a sheaf of sedge and £1.75 for a brotch pin, which secures the thatch.

Christine Malcolm, General Manager said: “Many of our guests visit the Broads and we are pleased to be involved with the preservation of an important aspect of the area’s history. We are looking forward to a busy City of Ale festival and hope to sponsor several sheafs of reed.”
