Visit our Go Go Dragon in Pottergate!

Dragon-finishedOur beautiful GoGO Dragon, Grace, has now been installed in The Good Earth Clothing Company shop in Pottergate in the Norwich Lanes. This family-run business specialises in ladies’ and men’s clothing made from natural fabrics including cotton, linen, silk and hemp.

Owner Richard Harvey lives in Hethersett and specially requested our dragon as his daughter, now an accountant living in the Cotswolds, is a former pupil of the school.

A warm welcome awaits any HOHS family who visit the shop to see our dragon and have a browse!
