Radio Car Travelogue 17 - 21 November

Monday morning and another week gets underway with Nicky Price (left) and Stephen Bumfrey (guess) in the studio. I'm off to Northgate School in Dereham where there's a Bullying Conference taking place.
Tuesday morning it's an early visit to Dunstan Hall where local business leaders are talking about skills in the wokplace. I want to talk about the news that the last stretch of the A11 in Norfolk will be dualled with Carline Williams, chief executive of Norfolk Chamber of Commerce (left) and the Chairman, Peter Barry (centre).

A few minutes later I'm holding the mic in front of Lord Young whilst Stephen talks "skills" with him. Must dash - my next job - Aylsham and Keys Sale Room.

You know that picture of the Queens head on the postage stamps? Some two hundred BILLION have been printed with that image and Jill Holliday , Head of Collectibles at Keys is holding the camera that took the picture. It was bought at auction by Keys for £1600.


Wednesday morning I made an early call to Attleborough Police Station where Inspector Gerry Coates informed us that the search continues for the missing man, Raymond Powell who vanished on Monday night. On my way to the next job I saw someone of a similar description walking along the verge of the A11 near Thickthorn. I gave the Inspector a quick call and they probably checked but have heard nothing since so I was probably responsible for some old man getting stopped by the Police ! You can't be too careful though.
Next I arrived at the rehearsal and recording studio Live Wire just opened by David (pictured) and Victoria Haney at Bowthorpe. The Lord Mayor officially opens the premises on Charles Watling Way this afternoon. Good luck to them - it's a dream that's taken some time and a lot of effort to fulfill.
Thursday I got a pleasant surprise when one of our ex-colleagues "Technical Bob" e-mailed to the Early Show from Melbourne! Don't you just love technology - I know he does!!

In the Radio Car and off to Earlham shopping centre to see Ben Binns owner of the Green Grocers to talk about credit squeeze, organic food and the cost of chicken!

Pictured above, Peter Ross and Ruth Goodall, two villagers of Weston Longville where I join them to hear about their protest to keep their Postie, Kevin who's had his round changed. This means his regulars of 21 years will miss him and the "Lost In The Post Campaign" wants to get him back.


Last job this morning is on London Street at Winsor Bishop Jewellers where I have to ring for admission. I'm met by a sturdy chap who escorts me upstairs. A black labrador bounds up them with me and we're taken into a secure room with a desk and a comfy sofa. This is obviously where the 'special' clients are brought to view the 'goods'. The 'goods' in this case are two Cartier watches (pictured with Director Sophie Croydon) She places one on my wrist - all £60,000. That's on the right of the picture (actual price £59,450 called Ballon Bleu) and on the left if the pic, La Dona at just £58,600! Stephen suggests I make the switch but I'm being watched (lol)!
CONGRATULATIONS to milkman Shaun Bunn who I interviewed last week. He became Milkman of the Year at the National Finals. Norfolk does it again!


Friday morning after checking out the A47 Honingham road works I contunue to Dereham then Gresenhall Rural Life Msudeum and Farm. Queenie the Sufolk Punch has died of old age and now the Friends need to raise around £7,000 to buy and train a new horse to take Queenie's place and keep old George company.

Last job of the week is with Paula Hudson (pic) at the WRVS Shop at the N & NU Hospital. They rely on volunteers and we were put onto them by the Word On The Street feature on Breakfast. If you fancy helping them for a few hours call Paula on 07714 898687.
