Radio Car Travelogue 12 - 16 October


Where did Monday go? In fact there was no-one for me to interview so I made myself useful around the office. Today though, Tuesday, plenty on my platter! First, to Barrack Street (so named because there used to be an old military barracks here in the 19th century) The block of flats that the council sold off have stood empty for two years now and look a disgrace. First pic is across the road and shows what they can look like if cared for. Next pic leader of the Greens on Norwich City Council, Adrian Ramsay came down on his bike to talk to us about the situation. The council is taking the new owners to task to at least clean up the site.
Next, I'm back at the Forum for a quick cookery demonstration to show how you can cook fish in a dishwasher! Yes, that's right, and later they proved it by eating the nice haddock fillet that was done to a turn. Trouble was, the smell penetrated the second floor and had all the TV people complaining about the smell!!
On a similar theme, my final job today is at Cromer where they're launching the Cromer & Sheringham Crab & Lobster Festival. Why has no-one thought of this before! Picyured left to right, Tony Ship (festival chairman) Hilary Thompson (Mayor of Cromer) and a lobster! Just like the elephant trail in Norwich last year, they're having a crab and lobster trail. Sponsors are already queueing up so we can look forward to a bumper fest next May!

Wednesday and we're looking at a brand new class of apple. I last interviewed Margaret Butcher when we were talking about women taxi drivers. She's still doing it and loving every minute. In the meantime, at her home in Lakenham, she managed to get someone to identify the apples from her tree in the garden. They're like no others! Literally, in a class of their own and she's named this hitherto unknown variety Lakenham Glory. How good is that? Then still on a theme I suppose, of women in the workplace, we're live from Sprowston Manor Hotel where the energy industry is excouageing women to come into what is predominantly a male industry. Pictured left (with the kilt so he doesn't feel out of place!) Chairman of Skills For Energy, Blair Ainsley with consultant Annette Thomas.

Long distance Thursday and a trip to Wells-next-the-Sea. A new dredger is launched which will help to maintain the channel into the harbour. It's come about because of the Sheringham Shoals windfarm construction who'll have a pontoon for craft that will go out to maintain the turbines. It will have obvious knock-on effects for the town too! Here's Wells Harbour Master Robert Smith who met me down by the quayside.

Friday and we're celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Mustard Shop since its move to the Royal Arcade. It's survived despite a couple of name changes to the company and now it's run by Norwich HEART (Heritage Economic and Regeneration Trust). Recently appointed Manager Nick Cook has a long career in retail recently working up at Sandringham. Formerly you would have seen him running the Forum Shop and will now welcome you to this important part of the Citys history.
Success for Raschools Playgroup in Brundall. Firstly, success meant increasing numbers wanting their services and success now in finding a new larger home. They've moved from Brundall Memorial Hall to this house with outside classroom thanks to the generosity of local councillor Mike Snowling. Currently though, to bring the facilities up to scratch they're looking out for skilled workmen to offer offer their services and local companies to help provide materials. If you can help their mail address is raschoolsbrundallplaygroup@googlemail.com Raschools is a registered charity with a committee managed by volunteers.
