GoGo Hares

Introducing the GoGo hares – worthy heirs to the elephants and dragons that preceded them.

INTRODUCTION

The charity Break have established something a tradition involving large painted fibreglass animals – it started with elephants, then dragons, and now for a third installment we have hares. This year they are looking beyond Norwich – there is one in Fakenham, which I saw on Friday, there is one in Dereham which I saw through the windows of the ExCel bus travelling to and from the auction that my employers had in the fine city of Norwich yesterday and there are a load of them distributed around Norwich, some of which I captured on camera.

The late legendary Richard Whiteley would probably have described this as a hare-tigger (he specialised in this kind of pun).

I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.

  1. Completely unrelated but knowing that you’re a Michael Burgess fan and have campaigned for him to be in the England team, he’s struck 56 from 23 balls I think in the T20 Blast tonight!
