The Polo Neck Early Show !

videoFor some time now there's been a running gag on the Early Regional Show about the fact that I wear roll neck or polo shirts as some people call them. Derided by Josephine from Monterey she's admitted defeat and bought some for husband Mad Mick. Hurrah for the boys and common sense. When the weather gets as cold as today you've gotta keep your neck warm!

Almost Spring - Why Not Buy A Boat?

Ever felt the need to break away from the traditional garden setting and let the world pass you by? Boating is the perfect way to escape AND relax. Unlike a caravan, with a boat even the journey becomes part of the adventure and with so many free 24 hour moorings around the Norfolk Broads it needn't cost you a fortune. Simply take the food and drink that you would have consumed at home with you adding further to your savings. Hence, a holiday afloat can be just the ticket for your relaxation and your pocket. There are some costs to bear in mind though. The annual boat toll to the Broads Authority. You're also advised to take out insurance and you'll need somewhere to keep your pride and joy moored. However, when you consider that you've a ready made bolt hole whenever you want it, the overall costs can work out very reasonable over a year. Yes, even cruising in winter can be enjoyable. THINK ABOUT IT! If you're seriously considering this lifestyle option, why not watch the video and get in touch with our dedicated team who'll do everything they can to find the boat of your dreams. Just watch and enjoy!

East Coast Truckers Childrens Convoy 2011








Wally has been Patron of the East Coast Truckers Childrens Charity since it became official many years ago although his involvement stretches back to the beginning over 25 years ago. It always takes place of the August Bank holiday Sunday starting at 10am travelling to Pleasurewood Hills near Lowestoft for a fun day and then to Great Yarmouth seafront at 6p before returning to Norwich via the A47. People take their holidays to be there to wave them though. Layby's and bridges all packed with people to the delight of the children.
Here's just a small selection of pics at the start of the convoy from County Hall. As you can see, last minute polishing of the trucks, a driver briefing and excited children before the off. The Police bikes were there as usual  The Lord Mayor and Sheriff, numerous other dignitaries including the local MP's come to wave them off.

The Radio Car

As I've now had a number of curious enquiries (particularly from our on-line overseas listeners) about the Radio Car that I do live reports with into Breakfast With Bumfrey following my own Show in the mornings, here's a peek at what it's like.

The E Mob Get Together at Wroxham

The EMOB is a group of individuals from around the world who communicate with each other as a result of listening to the Early Show. Dubbed as such by Alan Hodgetts when he was standing in for me it's continued to the present day so you'll hear them referred to if you listen regularly.
In 2010 the first ever gathering of EMOB members took place in Wroxham Norfolk. No mean achievement for Don & Caroline from Perth (the pretty city) W. Australia.
The second took place two years later in 2012. Regular listeners have also contacted the EMOB to join their numbers. I guess membership is open to all but you should enquire if you're interested.
