Radio Car Travelogue 16 - 20 November

So - back in the old routine and Monday finds me visiting Kickstart at Dereham. A great charity that provides scooters for people who need transport to get to work. Here's Rider Co-ordinator Barry Lines with some of the hundreds of 50cc scooters waiting for new owners. If you're about to start a new job and don't have regular transport then call them and see if they can help. The scheme includes a helmet and wet eather gear and after a fixed period the bike will be yours! Their number is 01362 699923.
Then I travelled across to Thetford to drop the Radio Car off with the Ten Town Tour team who started their fortnight today. Keep listening for further news. Tomorrow they're at Swaffham.
Tuesday morning I drive out to Attleborough to meet ex-RAF Mark Dewberry who's making up shoe boxes of goodies for the personnel in Afghanistan. He needs local firms to sponsor him for future despatches and would like local schools to maybe get involved. If you want to know what these parcels are all about and what sort of things they send then visit this site
http://www.parcelsofcare.tripod.com/ or give Mark a call and tell him where you got the number from 01953 454348. The Ten Town Tour today is at Swaffham.

An early visit to the supermarket on Wednesday morning to follow up the incident the previous evening when pepper spray was let off in Hellesdon. Shoppers were evacuated from the building as police, fire and ambulance crews arrived. By 8pm the 24 hour store was open again and two men were being questioned by police about the incident.
Thursday and the Ten Town Tour arrives in Wymondham (pronounced wind-ham). At the new medical centre I'm greeted by Martin Wynn (District Councillor) Practice Manager Colin Foulger and arriving late during the interview Graham Copsy from NHS Norfolk! Round the corner, another new property. The Samphire shop is adjacent to the pay and display car park in the centre of town. Jeff Nethercott and his wife Karen (centre pic) expanded their business from Blickling and moved in 6 weeks ago but feel that it's difficult getting people to find them. The council took away an A-board that they put on the main street. Another new business took the place of an old one. When Woolworths closed opposite the buttercross, the nearby Somerfield (owned by the Co-opertaive) decided to move from their smaller property across the road. Today Operations Manager was there as the new store opened with Radio Norfolk broadcasting from just inside the doors.
Friday morning finds me at Hethersett Social Club where there's determination to keep the club running. Despite home netertainment and cheap supermarket drinks keeping most folks at home they're making every effort to keep their numbers up. Saturday nigth there's a disco with something for everyone they say! Next I travel to Surlingham to meet Robert & Jill Wilson. Their old central heating system's had it so they found that they were eligible for a new energy efficient system funded under the Governments Warm Front Campaign. The trouble is they seem to have fallen foul of the planning regulations which haven't caught up with the scheme. We involved alocal planning chief who's now looking at what can be done for them. It's also Children In Need day and I'm designated driver for Pudsey. Here he is taking a breather in relaxed style in Great Yarmouth. Good old Pudsey!!
