Radio Car Travelogue 4 - 8 January 2010


Switching the street lights off between midnight and 5am in some places will save money and carbon but is it practical. City and County Councillor Bert Bremner (left) thinks it's a bad idea and there may be better ways to tackle the problem. We won't know until the debate is over and the decision made in 6 months time at which time we won't lose much light anyway but at this time os year it could mean a blackot for some parts of the county. January means it's time for the World Indoor Bowls Championship at Potters Leisure Resort at Hopton-on-Sea. Their 12th year means a whole weeks coverage on BBC tv. Pictured here is Marc Jones from Potters (left) and Tournament Director Ken Fawcett.

Tuesday we're expecting the bad weather to close in but not before I visit the Fairhaven Garden Trust at South Walsham to congratulate Manager Louise Rout and Head Gardener Ian Guest on their recent award for being good to the environment. As you can see the dyke is frozen over but the ducks provide amusing entertainment skating across it!

Wednesday and there's no where to go but stand by at the studio. I did go down to check on the boat though and this was the marina at lunchtime. Couldn't go anywhere even if you wanted too. The Braods Authority has warned people to keep off the ice though - it's not strong enough for dancing on ice yet!
Thursday morning and the snow arrived. To irresponsible to go out in the radio car so I walked through the city to assess how people were coping. What people? Very quiet as you can see but I did manage to get these snaps as rarely seen. Click on each to see enlargement but then use the back arrow to return.
Friday and as the freeze continues I'm at Norwich airport to see how they're coping. The 0615 for Amsterdam gets airborne at 0830 just as another snowstorm closes the runway again. Check before you travel. I suspect not many flights will get away today - or the weekend for that matter!
