The Maids Head Hotel in Tombland, one of the buildings in the colouring guide, is selling the booklet at hotel reception. Guests on the Maids Head’s Historic Norwich package receive a copy in their room. The hotel has 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.”
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.”
Norwich: A colouring guide for a fine city is also on sale at Jarrold Norwich.
