Radio Car Travelogue 8 - 12 June


Monday and the weather has cooled down. Here's Patrick Tubby, Chairman of Happisburgh Lighthouse Trust who took over their village landmark in the 90's. It has to painted regularly and today work starts on the mammoth task.

Tuesday finds me at Red Hall Farm where Yare Valley Riding for the Disabled group are looking for volunteers. It's the charities 40th anniversary too. Pictured are Pam, Peggy, Malcolm and Paddy.
Meanwhile, Sheri (Webb) took a ride out to Dunborough Farm Geldeston. If you remember my A47 Bank Holiday special (see earlier post) you may remember the emu's by the roadside? We heard from the couple there that they sold baby barn owls and Paul & Mandy at the farm heard that programme and went to buy their own owl and here he is!


On yer bike! Wednesday I'm at Streetlife Cycles on West End Street Norwich talking to manager John Ranson (right) about younger people preferring biking to X-boxes. As luck would have it, two days ago they took on Oliver Weavers (left) for work experience and he backed up the statistics!

Today, Thursday, news that work will begin to raise an old sunken wherry next to the Vistor Centre at Ranworth to make way for a mooring for one of the two new educational trip boats they're introducing. Depending on the condition of the wherry, it'll be laid to rest again by the broad to help reinforce the bank. If it's been well preserved however, we might have a different kind of project to deal with !! Pictured are Rebecca Worsford from Norfolk Wildlife Trust and their head of Nature Reserves, Matt Bradbury.
Friday again and the weather's picked up! On Watton High Street it's back to basics with Brown's Greengrocers dressing in Victorian costume and not just serving up the fruit and veg. Good local produce and they'll show you how to cook it. Pictured is Richard Brown. His wife Andrea aims to demonstrate traditional crafts like sewing and needlework to local schoolchildren. Novel idea. Let's hope they get local support.
Finally, I'm talking to David Stone who's researched and put together an exhibition in All Saints Church at Swanto Morley showing the close ties they have with the family and ancestors of Abraham Lincoln. Special guest at the opening tomorrow will be the acting US Ambassador no less!
