Radio Car Travelogue 19 - 23 April 2010


Monday and an early walk around Upton Marsh. Run by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust this is a beautiful walk in wetland. Matt Bradbury (second left) is Head of Nature Reserves and deupty Director of the NWT. They need to raise funds to buy more land and new walks are already planned skirting along the River Bure. To see more go to Fusion in the Forum Monday to Saturday this week where they're screening pictures of the reserves and their plans. Then a call from the newsdesk sends me off to Bacton Gas Terminal. Protesters from Earth First have chained themselves across the road causing the Police to close the road sending all local traffic round a long diversion. Inspector Brian Sweeney tells me that although a peaceful protest, it is causing an obstruction and as such they will remove them at some time - but not before I left!

Here's a great recycling scheme! I met up with Lisa Gooderham and David Hewer at Poringland Community Centre. They're inviting anyone to bring their unwanted (but recyclable) items to the Centre this Saturday 24th April. You can also go along and take away anything that takes your fancy ALL FOR FREE. Instead of landfilling reuseable goods, their aim is to encourage people to give them away. This is a trial scheme which Lisa says already works in Lowestoft. The time is 10-1 on Saturday. If you bring large items like furniture they'll ask you to keep it in your van or trailer. Lisa Gooderham is on Facebook or visit the council website at http://www.poringlandparishcouncil.org.uk/ and click on SPECIAL CLASSES/EVENTS or give her a call on 07786831300.

He hopes to be back to normal by next Monday. Then it's a long trek across country to Burnham Deepdale for the Earth Day and the business elite who gathered there for a breakfast summit. Pictured is Alister Borthwick who runs the business. Later today they were going to have a scrapheap challenge but I couldn't stay to watch it.
