Norwich School Students Publish Fine City Colouring Guide

Norwich School Book Melissa Thomas, Reservations Co-ordinator Maids Head Hotel, Tom Osborn Managing Director Inceptum Norwich holding his grandfather’s painting Winter Sports in Norwich and Victoria Hood, Deputy Head of Sixth Form Norwich School.

Inceptum Norwich, a business formed by a group of year 12 students at Norwich School, who are taking part in this year’s Young Enterprise Programme’s company scheme, have produced and published, Norwich: A colouring guide to a fine city, featuring 15 historic buildings and locations throughout the city (price £5.99).

We are one of the buildings in the colouring guide, and are selling the booklet at hotel reception. Guests on the Historic Norwich package receive a copy in their room. We have also combined with Inceptum Norwich to offer dinner for two for the best coloured-in booklet. Completed guides should be handed-in at hotel reception by February 28.

Some of the other historic buildings featured are Augustine Steward’s House, Norwich Castle, both Cathedrals and The Great Hospital. The booklet includes a map/trail guide and information about each building and location. There are line drawings of the buildings for                                                                                  colouring in, plus colour photographs as a guide.

The booklet’s cover is a painting of WINTER SPORTS IN NORWICH, by the late Frank Ashworth, grandfather of Tom Osborn, Managing Director of Norwich Inceptum.

Tom Osborn said: “The objectives of the booklet are to encourage all ages to learn about Norwich, get active and follow the trail, and also experience the de-stressing aspects of colouring. We would like to thank the Maids Head for their support and Irina Vakh from HSBC who has been our business mentor.”

Linzi Rawson, Sales Manager, Maids Head Hotel said: “We are really pleased to help Tom and his colleagues with their Young Enterprise project. The colouring guide is an excellent way to encourage people to get out and about and discover Norwich’s heritage. We are looking forward to receiving lots of completed booklets for our competition.”

Victoria Hood, Deputy Head of Sixth Form Norwich School and link teacher for Inceptum Norwich added: “The students have been a delightful group to work with and very professional the whole way through. I have been very impressed with the team work and the final product.”
