Radio Car Travelogue 22 - 26 June


Monday at Breckland District Council offices with Chief Executive (and former RAF) Trevor Holden. Along with many other places in the county and the country, 10.30 will see the flag raising ceremony to honour our troops wherever they may be in the world.

A bright Tuesday morning finds me at Beckham Place just behind Magdalen Street in Norwich where Unit 5 set up two years ago. They're hoping for a share of Lottery funding to keep this arts studio going in what was an industrial unit. Pictured left to right, Amy events co-ordinator, Leo who exhibits his work there and Kate Holmes the manager. Next the subject is farming and I sit in the shade with Richard Hurst who grows mainly peas and potatoes at Carr Farm at Ormesby St.Margaret.

It's bonjour on Wednesday (what's the French for Wednesday?) Pupils at Northgate High School in Dereham are putting on a French style restaurant and serving the teachers at lunchtime. Both sides have to speak French which is more of a problem for the teachers than it is for the students! Pictured with teacher Stephanie Bennett are Toby, Abbie and Joseph.

What a glorious sunrise and you've asked to see my view into the Forum where up to six suns rise! All reflected off the internal windows - here's three clustered together for warmth.
Then it's off in the radio car to Hemsby. Here, down at the Beach Cafe I meet up with Simon Middleton (centre pic) with cafe boss Jack. Simon's a brand expert and giving up his own time to revamp the area's image. Just round the corner is Newport which is included in the revamp. Here at the Seabreeze club I meet Ian Pratt from the nearby Newport Caravan Park. The talk is positive and despite recent setbacks the area is on course for a bright future.
Friday we're on Unthank Road in the City where local traders are suffering loss of passing trade because of roadworks. The repairs between Clarendon Road and Park Lane are well away from all the shops but the Council decided to divert all traffic away from Unthank Road to avoid gridlock of side streets. The result is that this normally busy road at peak time (left) is unusually quiet. Voicing their concerns (centre) were Chris Dunn here at his Unthank Kitchen restaurant and butcher Anthony Spurgeon.
