Radio Car Travelogue 5 - 9 January 2009

Monday - and first we're checking the road conditions for everyone returning to work. We've not been hit too badly but expect more ice and maybe snow through the week. Next, I'm at Norwich Puppet Theatre with Manager Ian Woods. A year ago they were worried that they might have to close because of lack of funding. At the start of 2009 things are a bit better especially with £10,000 from the Geoffrey Watling Charity Fund. They need more though to keep going. I've booked the visit for January 2010!
Then an Ah! Bless moment. Unfortunately because of transmission problems I had to record my visit to Banham Zoo. It's the second baby giraffe to be born there (I know - they're usually babies at that age!). They haven't named her yet. You can hear my interview with Animal Manager Mike Woolham on tomorrows breakfast show.

Tuesday and with temperatures reaching as long as minus 8! I'm out to sample the delights of the countryside. It's a similar story on Wednesday morning although we were just hovering around the zero mark. I took a call on the Show about a break in at a village shop. In all overnight, thieves broke into shops at Swanton Morley, Melton Constable and (pictured) Mileham Community Stores. (You can see more on this story on the BBC local website) Last stop was at Dragon Hall in Norwich for our "first for Norfolk" series on the Breakfast Show.
The first Norwich Dragon Festival in February will be a celebration of dragons in history and the culture of the City. Puppet shows, film, art and craft activities are just some of things planned by Dragon Hall and the Norwich Heritage Economic & Regeneration Trust. Look out for dragons around the city and a chance to see some in places not normally open to the public.
First task on Thursday morning - to say 'Thanks' for all the birthday cards!! Then I have to go to my favourite stretch of beach - Sea Palling. That and adjacent Waxham hold fond memories of RAF days at Coltishall when the Motor Club held its annual Beach B-B-Q. Here it is early morning with a flat calm sea. Then a few miles away I interview Bob & Mary Haines at Haines Marine and we look over one of the new builds - a 34' foot sedan - and NO I didn't buy one much as I'd like to. Lastly, a few miles away I meet up with Gemma Walker at Hickling. It's a great morning for a walk down to the wetland hide but we don't see much wildlife. Hey ho - maybe tomorrow.
Final job of the week on Friday was to interview someone on a sponsored silence !! What? Exactly. Fortunately we were able to arrange the start of Finbarre Caters silence to coincide with the end of my interview during which he told us that he's raising money for the Hamlet Centre to help the special children with their music. Good luck to him. His website for donations is at justgiving.com.
