Radio Car Travelogue 18 - 22 January 2010

Castle Museum and I'm talking to the Chief Curator John Davies about the BBC project about the history of the whole world! Yes, which 10 objects would put Norfolk on the world map. One is in my hand - a stone age hand axe from Happisburgh. You can find out more by going to www.bbc.co.uk/norfolk
Then by the Forum I met up with Helen Leach from the RSPB. At the end of the month it's the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. That doesn't mean you have to have a big garden by the way! Want to know more then go to http://www.rspb.org.uk/ or you can phone them on the hotline 0300 456 8330.
Tuesday and you can hear all about it tonight on Mathews Show - Lotus hosted a breakfast with F1's Jake Humphrey and business guests to launch this scheme to get company drivers to motor greener! Over at Banham Zoo Clare Jenkinson is counting! The annual census of all things living in zoo's around the country takes place in January. Here we can just tot up the giraffes in the early morning mist but much more difficult is the head count of the whistling cockroaches. Don't know what they're so happy about? This will be broadcast on Breakfast tomorrow morning.
Wednesday and we're highlighting the problem with potholes that have come about as a result of the cold spell. The road surface is breaking up as a result of the ice and many calls were taken from all over the County. Left pic is an example of how the lunder core can be eroded quickly once the surface macadam has broken up. Centre, at the Watton Highways Depot left, Manager Nick Tupper and right Patcher Ricky with a tub of repair material that they can use cold to fill in the holes. It's a sad day for the villagers of North Elmham where Norman Olly (right) has pulled the last batch of loaves from the oven after 32 years baking for the community. He said he'd rather pack up poor but with happy memories than leave rich without them. It was a tearful radio moment and I look forward to hearing from him on the phone early mornings. He's promised to keep in touch if he wakes up in time!
Thanks to an early call from Malcolm I was able to give early warning of a burst water main on the Norwich ring road. Out there with the radio car I could see why the road had been cloed between Hall Road and the Ipswich Road. The sand brought up by the burst caused a bank across the road which was like quicksand. I know - I tried to walk on it!!! Then to Sheringham where I met up with the founder of the Greenhouse Community Project, Clive Hay Smith here standing by the raised beds for disabled gardeners at the allotment site part of which you can see in the background. The debate still rages on about a large supermarket in Sheringham. Clive also hopes to incorporate a Food Academy and Waitrose will build the green supermarket. Planning permission has yet to be approved but already the take-up on the allotments has been good. We'll follow the story.
Fridays mssion - boot camp somewhere inThetford Forest! Pictured left from left to right, Valerie Bullard, Director of Combat Boot Camp, ex Sgt.Major Darren Marsh and ex Navy PTI Ronnie James Hughes. They're helping the students (pictured right filling out indemnity forms!) to drop a dress size, keep fit and eat a healthy diet. Some will pay for the privilege of going through the two day tough regime and when questioned, Ronnie refused to reveal what the Prisoner Of War circuit involved. One can only guess!
