Radio Car Travelogue 10-14 November

Monday and I'm at Wymondham where the new £2m Library is to be officially opened at 1.30pm. BBC Radio Norfolk are live at 0820 with Head of Libraries Jennifer Holland and Community Librarian Rachel Harris once they've found the right key to unlock the door and let me in. Making the headlines, yours truly declares a window officially open just before 0830 !!
Then I'm off to Breckland District Council offices at Dereham to interview the Leader William Nunn. Thetford secures £900,000 to encourage people to become healthier and maybe even grow their own over the next three years.

Tuesday - Armistice Day and Oh! What a beautiful morning! Took this at Roughton on my way to see Theo Stibbons (centre pic) in Cromer. The box in front of him contains the WWI memoirs of his Uncle Eay Randall and the fascinating tale can be read in the book just out called Dear Hal Yours Pud. It's taken from the start and finish of over a hundred letters that he wrote to his brother.

Then it was down the coast road to Weybourne basking in the early morning sunshine but with a bitter cold wind. Picture right is Landlord of the Ship Inn, Terry Raynor with the East Anglian Ambulance Service defibrillator fastened to the pub wall. The first of many they hope to disperse around Norfolk. To quote - their campaign is to make them as common as fire extinguishers.
Wednesday at Postwick Park & Ride with Asset Development Manager for the County Council, Tina Rust (pictured). In January new charges come into force. Without going into complexities, at present you pay to park your car and ride for free. The new scheme means you'll park your car for free but every passenger pays (concessions excepted of course). It could meanmean cheaper trips for some whilst others will pay a little more.

Thursday and it's not far above freezing but nothing stops Shaun Bunn from delivering his range of products to grateful customers. As Regional Milkman Of The Year we hope he takes the National title for Norfolk next week. Whilst I'm there I also discover that he sells sterilised milk - haven't seen that for years - and even Stephen Bumfrey wants me to bring him a bottle back to the studio! LATEST - HE WON!
Next, to the Dussindale Centre where Sgt.Andy Hood is waiting with Community Speedwatch volunteer Richard Rimmington. There's about 30 such schemes now operating in Norfolk with local people checking speeding motorists. Quote of the day has to come from Richard who, on the subject of volunteering announces, "It's better than sitting at home waiting for Countdown to come on the telly!"
Friday and it's Children In Need day for the BBC. The Radio Car's on Carrow Hill in Norwich at Hugh J Boswell Insurance Brokers where the forty strong workforce are having a 'spotty' day. Charlotte Lord (foreground) is wearing her spotty jama's ! Nicky Jones in the spotty blouse is also sporting a fetching pair of spotty wellies. When asks if anything else she was wearing was spotty she said no but I wasn't convinced! Cake sale, raffle and silent auction will add to their total so best of luck and well done all Children In Needers today.
