GoGo Hares

You may have read about the Norwich GoGoHares Project in aid of Break charity. It follows hot on the heels of the hugely successful GoGoDragons trail around Norwich, which attracted 100,000s of visitors to the City.  This year, for the first time, 18 special hares will be sited outside Norwich, and Harleston’s Future is leading a campaign to raise funds to host a Harleston Hare between 24 June and 8 September.

To make it happen the group needs to raise £5,000. Chairman Robin Twigge said 'We have already had pledges from local businesses and organisations totalling over £2,000 and we are confident that others will want to help once they hear about it. We would be thrilled if you able to help us reach this target.' Read more >

Harleston History

Harleston

Harleston History

In many old guide books Harleston is described as being a town of Georgian and Victorian houses. Whilst the centre of the town looks like this is the case, in reality the buildings are far older - but hidden!  What we see here is just a facade, beneath which the Harleston of the 1300s to 1600s remains!  It just has to be discovered.  There are over 160 very old buildings in the town, many with some of the original features still visible.  We will be publishing regular articles about individual buildings to create a list of some of the architectural masterpeices inside Harleston.  Keep a look out for new entries, then come to Harleston and see for youselves.
