Radio Car Travelogue 27 - 31 July


Monday and because the radio car needs some attention I'm down at Norwich Yacht Station with Steve Birtles who's in charge of safety at the Broads Authority. They've launched a campaign about safety on and near the water and to bring the message home you can get a wind-up torch with information on it! Let's hope that we avoid any tragedies this year x.
After putting the radio car for minor repairs we're told that it needs a new transmission! So I'm without this Tuesday morning. First, a drive to our postcode lottery location of Eaton where the scouts are camped out at Eaton Vale Scout & Guide Activity Centre. (note the washing out to dry!) Left to right, Operations Manager at the site, Richard Lang, Lucy & Katie, leader of the 2nd Chigwell Brownies and scout Anthony from Romney. Then to Strangers Hall in the city supposedly to interview a man about a car! I'm offered a lift through the City to the Assembly Rooms where this classic Panhard is on show until Friday. At the wheel, Peter Wilgoss a volunteer at Gressenhall Rural Life Museum where the car is kept and maintained together with (far right) team leader Mike Vincent. I'm the goon with the goggles!


Wednesday and I'm delivering the radio car to the Sandrigham Flower Show for the mid morning team. The last time I was here was when Camilla made her first public appearance with Charles. The Queen Mother was still around then! As you can see, I went over to the house to see if they were watching out of the window. Can you see them top right hand side behind the curtain?

Thursday morning the first planned rail strike leaves Thorpe Station without any trains after the 0740 pulled out for London. I'm live from the picket line with RMT regional Organiser Bob Raynor. The dispute is over pay and there'll be a second day of action tomorrow.
Where's the week gone? Friday and our postcode lottery brings me to NR7 Sprowston & Thorpe StAndrew. Pictured left, Stephen Ford, clerk of Thorpe St.Andrew Town Council and we're looking at the River Yare and the adjacent gravel pit which has now filled with water and is establishing itself with wild flora and fowl. The only access by foot is over the iron bridge crossing the railway lines and the only eyesore is the water gypsies who live in makeshift boats as shown. Then down the road at Broadland District Council offices I'm met by Simon Woodbridge, the leader of the Council and we're talking about 600 new homes and possibly a small railway platform extending the Dussindale development out towards Rackheath and close to the Northern Distributor planned route.
