Remember last week, I was in Wells to talk about the new dredger that will improve conditions at the outer coastline. Now Wells is making news again. Here's enterprising Mark Guymer who's brought back the weekly market after 20 years. It's on trial and the toughest time of the year to make a go of it but come the summer season ! Who knows. It's on the car park of the Ark Royal pub and right next door to the pay and display car park near to the harbour.
Meet the new boss at Lotus F1 and Ding Dong - the dog that rings its own bell! Left - Mike Gasgoyne, chief technical officer for Lotus F1 Racing now based at Hingham. Financial backing has come from Malaysia where the new company will also have a base. Right - Patch the dog ringing his own doorbell invented by his owner George Moore. A simple remote control pad allows Patch to press and ring when he wants to come in. Much better than barking and sold through George on his website http://www.dogsdoorbell.co.uk/
Wednesday and it's TRAFALGAR DAY. At Norwich School at the cathedral there's this statue of Nelson where Head Boy Steve Squirrell will lay a wreath as part of the schools commemoration to one of their own. Nelson was educated here between the ages of 10 and 12 before going on to Paston School in North Walsham. There was also an early morning service in the cathedral for all the students.
Thursday and the start of the postal strike. I'm on the picket line at Thorpe Road sorting office. Centre pic - Mally Hill Branch Secretary of the CWU. Today it's collection drivers and sorting staff who're out. Tomorrow it'll be the delivery drivers and post men and women. Here' my next task - post a letter! As an experiment I've posted a note to Chris Goreham in Wymondham and we're going to see how long it takes to get to his home!
So it's Friday and we're talking about bonfire night. Sparks In The Park organised by Norwich City Council has always been at Earlham Park for the past years and there's always been plenty of parking. Here, Events Manager Helen Selleck says that this year there's be no public parking except for disabled drivers. They can't run the risk of rain and cars ruining the grassed areas. There will be Park & Ride services though from Thickthorn. Then - off to Great Yarmouth Market Place where they hope to break the world recod for Where's Wally characters. Kits at £5 each seen here modelled by Town Centre Manager Jonathan Newman and his glamourous assistant. Can you spot which is which? The record of 1005 is currently held by New York ! Good luck.
