Radio Car Travelogue 20 - 24 April 09

BLOGGING NORFOLK - this Thursday
Stephen Bumfrey & Nanette Aldous
We're asking everyone to text and e-mail photo's to us on Thursday so that we can build up our map of Norfolk on the Blog. If you want to know more go to this link (but don't forget to come back here!)
I took these two pics in the studio this morning whilst we were talking about how easy digital camera's are now so if you've never tried it before - make an effort just for us on Thursday.
Outside of the studio this morning (Monday) I met up with Lib Dem Councillor Judith Lubbock at Vauxhall Street, one of a number now with a reduced speed limit of 20mph. The others are Jex Road, Hellesdon Road, Marlpit Lane and Knowland Grove area and the Borrowdale Drive area.
Good news for Tuesday morning with three Norfolk firms given the Queen's Award for Enterprise. PPI Engineering Norwich, Syne Qua Non in Diss and (above left) Aquaterra Energy. Director James Larnder left and MD George Morrison right. Still on a business theme, just next door at the Holiday Inn I joined Caroline Williams, chief executive of the Norfolk Chamber of Commerce with (left) Andy Beveridge of Kineton Confectionery Fakenham and right, Edward Bales, MD of Poultec Training Ltd. Leaders from across the county were joining forces to ensure that we have a skilled and world class workforce fit for the future.
Wednesday pre-budget morning and I'm going to talk to some people over breakfast about their thoughts on the Chancellor's plans. However, live broadcasts always unpredictable, first, find the cafe! Look at the pic on the left. Spot the cafe. I passed it three times thinking it was a car sales office!! Then, just before we go on air, all the customers leave !!!!!!!! Hay ho - off to Cawston. At least the church is easy to find and my guests are waiting. Left, Parish Priest Tom Harris and right, Richard Bowers who restored their fine organ and played it on-air for us. Just one of the improvements planned. Beautiful church - visit if you can.
Friday morning and my first job takes me to - - - the Forum! See below for the Radio Car. Meanwhile we're talking about bikers and the launch of Think Norfolk campaign. Lasting for four months you'll see the new logo - a computer generated character called Hugger. (a name given to the rear mudguard of a motorbike!) A short drive away we're next on-air from the St.Andrews Centre off Thunder Lane where they've been holding an indoor farmers market for some time now. Despite recession it's holding its own and is popular with locals. Pictured with Ian the butcher is Christine Boggis who got it off the ground.

Finally for this week, despite heavy traffic I made it in time to Reepham to meet Maxine Moss and her laptop. Yes, it's Blogging Norfolk and Maxine was one of the thousands who responded yesterday. I have to apologise for the quality of the shot (it was a bright morning) especially as Maxine's a photographer and her website, One Face For Every Day features her work in this field. Have a look for yourself. We traded photo's in fact so my mugshot will be on her blog any day now.
Lastly, just again to prove what a bright dawning to Friday as the sun bounces off the Forum facia, a last look at the Radio Car in it's old colours. Soon it goes away to be rebranded with our new logo and a change of colour. Watch this space !!
