Radio Car Travelogue 8 - 12 February

Monday and the snow has returned albeit lazy flakes! I'm at the Norwich Puppet Theatre with General Manager Ian Woods. Two years ago we spoke about funding and how the future of the theatre was in jeopardy. Since then they've applied for as many grants from as many places as they can and have stayed afloat thanks to the generosity of local organisations. That and diversifying into album launches, clairvoyance evenings and even burlesque nights! The future still isn't certain but as one of only two puppet theatres in the COUNTRY , your support would help them keep going.
Tuesday and I'm on King Street Norwich at the former Ferry Boat public house. Fow many years this was a great live music venure with gardens down to the river. Having stood derelict for three years it's now in a bit of a state but Jason Borthwick and his father have bought it and aim to replicate their Burnham Deepdale business of a Backpackers Lodge. There'll be extensive work to carry out before they can offer 250 overnight places in a purpose built hostel with riverside activities like canoeing on offer. It's planned to open sometime in 2011. We'll be back before then to see how it's coming on!
Wednesday morning the snow returned which only added to the woes of motorists comin into the city via the A11. Apart from a spate of accidents, the roadworks at Cringlefors are causing long delays as everything comes down to single lane from Thickthorn. Project Team Manager Mark Kemp told us how they're extending the bus lane towards the City and although the cones will be reduced today, for safety reasons a lot of the restrictions will still apply whilst the central barriers are replaced to accomodate the new lane.
Still with motoring but of a faster kind. On the right, P1 Motorsports Team Principal Roly Vincini spoke to me at the Hethel Engineering centre where they're now based following the total burnout in Shropham last August. Cars and equipment were easy to replace but it's taking a lot longer to track down the trophies and certificates that they'd accumulated over their 25 year history!
Friday finds me in 'Kingdom' country. Well Swaffham really where they did most of the filming. Just up the way is the former Town Hall now the Swaffham Museum which reopens after a winter clean tomorrow, Saturday with Keith Skipper doing the honours. Here's Sian Hogarth who showed me round. Of special interest is the Egyptian room. Bring your own mummies!
