Radio Car Travelogue 23 - 27 February 2009

Monday and I'm just at the market place in the City to oversee Stephen Bumfrey (with mic) and Kirsteen (left) talking about emprty shops and these harder times with Stefan Gurney Norwich City Centre Partnership manager (centre right) and Clive Rowe, chairman of the Lanes Traders Association representing independant shops. Whilst attending to their technical needs I spotted this image sprayed by stencil I reckon onto the wall of the Lloyds bank building. Hmmm - Pudsey in Deed!
Tuesday morning and we're following up the many calls about empty shops and the impact of the recession. Here's Aylsham's Red Lion Street (renamed Dead Lion Street) but chair of Aylsham Town Council Liz Jones (pic outside Porkies) is more upbeat about the future although Tina Howard who runs Porkies sandwich shop feels the councils and landlords should help new business's to get off the ground.
Wednesday I had a long trip to West Winch to meet the parents of Claire who, at the age of 20 had a stroke! She's now recovering in Addenbrooks and we heard jast what had happened from Derek and Susan here with a picture of Claire. We wish her well soon.
Next job - find some litter Wally - and that's not too difficult. This pic of the layby on the A134 near Stradsett is typical of places where vehicles stop and deposit their rubbish. It makes me mad because people are spoiling their own countryside. In many cases it just laziness but in this layby there was also evidence of at least three people leaving behind another kind of deposit together with the toilet roll ! Uuuuurrrrgh!
Thursday we took a look at the £21m expansion of Easton College but I guess you don't want a view of a building site! Friday I went to the races - at Fakenham. No runners at 8.30 in the morning but clerk of the course David Hunter (pic) was excited about Tony McCoy taking five rides today after just becoming the first jockey to ride over 3,000 winners. Is your money on him today? Next, and last job of the week, at Sheringham Railway Station. Here's Colin Borg of the North Norfolk Railway. It's fifty years since Dr.Beeching decimated the railways across Norfolk and this weekend they (like other railway centres) are putting on a special two day steam-up. I whipped out the video camera so watch this space for a short film of my morning.
