Teemu Pukki unveils Park Farm's new Scandinavian lodges

25 October 2018

Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki helped unveil club partner Park Farm's brand new Scandinavian lodges on Wednesday.

Park Farm is the official hotel partner of Norwich City and the Canaries' forward was on hand to cut the ribbon to mark the official opening of the new lodges.

All pre-match preparation, briefings and build-up to matches for Daniel Farke’s squad take place at the hotel, situated a convenient distance from Colney Training Centre.

Pukki said: “I like the lodges. It’s nice to have some Scandinavian stuff in Norwich too. I could see myself spending some nights here.

“The partnership is really important. We come to Park Farm before the home games to relax and eat. It’s really important for us to have a place like this to relax and focus before we go to the stadium.”

General Manager of Park Farm, Richard Bond, said: "The two lodges are a different sort of accommodation for us. There are two two-bedroom lodges which can be split or kept as one big lodge. It's a new concept for us because the majority of our rooms are on the grounds of the hotel.

"We offer a lot of support to the Club. It's really nice to be associated with them, especially when they're doing so well. Long may it continue.

"It's very nice of Teemu to come along. We felt with the Scandinavian theme, he was the ideal person!" 

Pukki was also on hand to present local charity Keeping Abreast with a signed shirt. Park Farm will donate a percentage of their earnings from their afternoon tea servings throughout October to the charity.

Maria Hewkin, former trustee of Keeping Abreast, said: “We are a breast cancer reconstruction support group. We support women after their breast cancer as they go for immediate or delayed reconstruction.

“All throughout October, Park Farm are donating money from their afternoon teas to us. It’s wonderful that they are supporting us.

“It was wonderful to see Teemu. It’s a lovely thing to do and hopefully we can auction it off at our ball next year and raise some money for the charity.”
