Wroxham Barns is proud to be the home of Betsy the GoGo Hare, part of the countywide trail of 68 beautiful, individually painted Hares in support of the 50th birthday of Norfolk-based charity Break supporting vulnerable children, young people and families. Betsy was named in a competition won by Diane Pearson, honouring Elizabeth Fry known as “the Angel of Prisons” and born in Norwich in 1780. She joins Cammi and Harriet from previous GoGo campaigns. Discover all sorts of stunning hare-themed merchandise in our shops and craft studios. To celebrate the arrival of Betsy, there’s a Hare trail around the Farm for the little ones to hunt the letters and win a little prize to take home.
