Radio Car Travelogue 24 - 28 November



The week started with Chloe Goreham and Sarah Cochius at Wymondham College talking about their campaign "Labelled" about young people who're fed up with the way young people are portrayed in some parts of the media. Without their parents consent I can't publish a photo but on Tuesday I was at the King's Centre where Judge Peter Jacobs (pictured) was addressing 200 people about identifying potential abuse in the home.

Next, to Aylsham to see butcher Crawford White. Up for discussion, our Word On The Street


about the lack of choice provided by chain stores and Crawford illustrated how small shops can be better for shopping and how Aylsham was a good example of small traders competing well against the local supermarkets surrounding them.

Wednesday proved to be a bit of a dash. First, to Saham Toney just outside Watton to speak with rat catcher Ben Wright who runs Pest Express. We were talking about the boom in the rat population. They reckon there's 80 million of them now and the mild winters don't help.


A quick cross-country dash and it's Newton Flotman to talk with Andrew Flintham about his birdsong recordings of a dawn chorus which he's marketing as a CD. If you want to know more about it then just search engine Brecklands Dawn Chorus.
Thursday and after talking to a resident of Lakenham about the frequent power cuts they're suffering at present, I'm down the lane to Cawston Primary School where these children with their Head Teacher Kay Swan (left) and music teacher Wendy Forster (right) gave us a sample of their dinging. In the afternoon via the internet theyll be part of 600,000 singers attempting to break the world record for singing simultaneously. (I have their permission to reproduce this photo.

Friday took an unexpected turn! Listeners will have heard Stephen Bumfrey take over at 6am so that I could get to Great Yarmouth with the Radio Car to report on the fire that I'd been talking about since 4am. 133 people evacuated because gas cylinders were in the small motor yard where a fire had broken out just before 3am. The burnt out vehicle in the pic is thought to have been the seat of the blaze which left one couple without a home. So - instead of the planned trip to see a farmer growing popcorn I spent the morning at Great Yarmouth before delivering the radio car to Fakenham for our Toys & Tins appeal. Here ends another exciting week out on Norfolks roads.
