Radio Car Travelogue 3 - 15 May



Soft balls! I beg your pardon! That's what PC Paul Borman is holding at Attleborough Police Station. They're encouraging youngsters to play with these rather than the more noisy and damaging inflated footballs. It's already proving successful but will we see this spreading to other parts of the County? Really doing well is Norfolk asparagus. Centre pic - Portwood Farm at Great Ellingham where Andy Allen(right) farms 170 acres. Grown under plastic tunnels the temperature has to reach 10C before the crowns will peek out above the soil. An increase in consumer demand for more local product means that Andy and his team of workers have been kept busy this year.

Look through any window. Left, the entrance to the Book Hive on London Street Norwich where proprieter Henry Layte is putting writers into a booth in the window and getting them to create a literary work. Peeking through the curtains here's yours truly adding my 250 words to the composition which will be published as an illustrated book by Gatehouse Press and sold in the shop. I'll let you know the launch when it happens.

Left, at the home of Lorna & Criag Stoker in North Walsham with little Erin (now 19 months old) When she was just ten days old she needed specialist heart surgery at Great Ormond Street Hospital. The Childrens Acute Transport Service - CATS- were filmed during Erins journey which can be sen tonight on BB1 at 10.35. Then I'm by the waterside at Wroxham Broad where the Broadsbeat inflatable picks me up. It's the 15th season now for these waterborne Police and after a spin round the broad we cruise down to the Hotel Wroxham where todays official 'thank you' to the sponsors is being held.

Wednesday saw the Princess Royal visit the Happisburgh lighthouse. The first thing to greet her at the door was the lifesize manequin of the keeper pictured here with Carol Palfrey (left) and Diana Wrightson, Friends of the Lighthouse who raise money for the Trust that manages it. Although she's been patron of the Trust for years, this will be the first time that Princess Anne has visited.
Thursday (above) we're talking about Acute Community Beds, a scheme whereby an dedicated bed at a care home provides a place where hospital standard care can be given to a patient making it better for them and freeing up a bed in the hospital. Pictured left to right are ex-patient Ken Redgment and his wife with Anne Stairs from the Thorpewood Medical Group. Lastly I join 500 business people in the Conference Centre at the John Innes Institute. They're discussing ways to make their businesses more 'green' and sustainable. Left to right are Ian Findlater from May Gurney, Ian Hacon from Blue Sky Leisure, Caroline Williams, CE of the Norfolk Chamber of Commerce and Gordon Chetwood from Kinnerton Ltd, chocolate manufacturers.

Friday morning is chilly again and we had a text from Graham in Lakenham about not being able to plant anything out yet desoite the plants doing well in his greenhouse. We were joined by expert Martyn Davey who advised using fleece to cover them at night but letting them breathe when the temperature rises during the day. As for early flowering, avoid keeping them too warm at night. My last job this week has no accompanying pic. I travelled to Keninghall to meet Steve Ralphs who advised Russel Crowe and taught him how to use a bow during the making of the latest Robin Hood movie. You won't see Steve in the film but you'll see a lot of his handywork because he made and supplied nearly all the bows and arrows.
