Monday and on the menu today - hearts and pollocks!! Pictured - Dr. Liam Hughes who if you remember, rowed across the Atlantic to raise money and awareness about heart disease. Today I talk to him about the Norfolk Heart Attack Centre at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital. Now we have a 24/7 service for heart patients able to put a stent in a blocked artery saving patients from having to go all the way to Papworth Hospital. As for the pollock - Sainsbury's are to sell theirs under the French name for hake - COLIN. No-one seems sure of the pronunciation - CO - LIN or as in the name COLIN! So I'm sent into the store to buy some. By co-incidence, we had some for tea last Saturday night so I bought the same pack, smoked. As you can see, the change of name clearly hasn't happened yet. After the broadcast I went home and put the identical pack in the fridge where Saturdays had been. Mrs. Webb was out so no doubt when she goes to the fridge tonight she'll be seeing things ! I'll deny it all and she'll think she's going doo-lally !!!! Happy days.
Tuesday I'm in the old Lloyds Bank building on Church Street Sheringham. After all the resistance to letting Tesco put a store there, local farmer (pic) Clive Hay-Smith would like to put this eco-friendly supermarket next to the Splash facility. The plan is to sell much local produce, work with existing shops to compliment the town and plough part of the profits back into the community.
It's open from 8am to 8pm for the next three days - Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday to guage public reaction.
Wednesday after scouring the countryside for a sighting of a big cat I'm down on the River Wensum in the City where the Council are asking for ideas to name the new bridge under construction. It'll take pedestrians and cyclists acroos from Riverside to King Street and will be opened in August. If you think you can come up with a suitable name, try downloading the form for the competition at http://www.norwich.gov.uk/.
Thursday and I'm off to the Henderson Business Centre. Standing on the site of the former Bowthorpe School, it opened in 2006 to provide premises for small businesses to grow. Owned by the North Earlham, Larkman and Marlpit Development Trust it's tenants aren't tied to a long lease. Pic left - the main building which has 40 starter offices. Pic right - the small new units just added. Centre Picture left to right - Project Manager Stuart Jones, Christina Young (her firm is Seriously Responsible Print which does what it says !) and Kevin Hall the Chief Executive of Norfolk & Waveney Enterprise Services.
