Rolling out the old beer bar­rels for the dogs

Let's Talk - - UPDATE -

Old beer bar­rels have been re­cy­cled to pro­vide new dog wa­ter­ing sta­tions at Fairhaven Wood­land and Wa­ter Gar­den, South Wal­sham.

Two have been set up so far, near the tea­room and down by the staithe next to Fairhaven’s broad.

Vis­i­tor Peter Brough’s dog, Pippa, sam­pled the new wa­ter­ing sta­tion. “It’s the first time we have vis­ited Fairhaven. We are from Brown­hills in the West Mid­lands and have trav­elled for a short break be­fore our niece, Emma’s grad­u­a­tion day at the UEA.

“We have re­ally en­joyed ex­plor­ing Fairhaven Gar­den and think that the beer bar­rels are a great idea. It means that you can en­sure that your dog has easy ac­cess to fresh wa­ter.”

Dogs on leads are wel­come at Fairhaven Gar­den. There is a dog en­try charge (25p) to cover the costs of poop scoops, which are given to ev­ery dog owner. Dog bins are sited in the gar­dens.

Fairhaven Wood­land and Wa­ter Gar­den is at South Wal­sham, nine miles east of Nor­wich, sign­posted off the A47 at the B1140 junc­tion.
