Monday and here's some views of Reeham market town. See the icicles on the thatched roof bathed in cold winter sun! Rex Warner and Jo Tym tell me about the Green Team hoping to make Reepham one of the UK's first Low Carbon communities. They could be awarded £500,000 and already Jo is planning for the community building. Rex also revealed that they were building the worlds first electric mini-bus! St.Michael's church by the village sin bedecked in snow.
The mystery of the 25 Christmas cards that appeared on lamp posts throughout Norfolk was finally solved. Here's the culprits. "Hoodies for happiness". Left to right, Colin, Oz, Holly and Frankie. They're a self formed group who want to spread some happiness and make people think about a better life. They cheered up a lot of people with the Yuletide message which had us puzzled for a while but they contacted BBC Radio Norfolk and came clean. Living up to their own high principles then! Finally, here's the promised pic of the galloping horses with the huge Christmas tree right outside our studio's at the Forum.
First thing Tuesday to Thorpe Station to cover the early rail delay and then to the advent calendar. A parcel! That's easy enough. At Rowntree Way sorting office, Andy Keeler of Royal Mail told us how they deal with the Christmas rush. Their collection office is open 7am - 7pm until Christmas Eve when they'll shut up shop at 5pm.
Here's Geoff Shaw, Chairman of Bramerton Parish Council who bought their local phone box from BT for just £1.00. Trouble is, they now find that the cost of keeping the light on is going to be much more than they expected. If you think the glass needs cleaning it's because it was such a cold morning it's frozen solid!! The advent calendar challenge to find a snow covered tree was an easy one but I think you'll agree that this one in Swaffham is particularly stunning.
Truth be known, Mich Payne (left) came to the old Sport Village to show me round the revamped ice rink opening today. Unfortunately, with the melting ice, he slipped and fell and as he did so the keys to the premises slipped out of his pocket and fell straight down a drain! Locked out we did the interview and I left to leave him to face the music. The Rink is open Christmas morning 10 - 12 AND IT'S FREE SKATES AND FREE ADMISSION!!
Next to Stoke Holy Cross where Karen showed me the teddy bear she found on the Pulham roundabout. Gift wrapped with a tag saying "To Henry from Aunty Margaret" we appealed for the owner but it could have been dropped by someone leaving the county for Christmas. Teddy will now go to the Salvation Army to start next years Toys N Tins Appeal!
