Radio Car Travelogue - Sunday 27th - Friday 2nd July

SUNDAY 27th June

CLICK ON ANY IMAGE TO ENLARGE IT. On the Treasure Quest trail. 1. Becky boards the Lydia Eva at Great Yarmouth. 2. Scalextric racing in Lingwood Village Hall. 3. At the crease at Horsford Cricket Club. 4. In the Eaton Open garden where she just failed to find the treasure stuffed up a china chickens bum!
MONDAY 28th June.

World cup blues. This replica was made by staff at Aviva's call centre at the Broadland Business Park. Centre, Janine & Stuart Field of Eaton spoke to me on the Breakfast Show about old rivalries. Janine supports Germany (she IS German) and Stuart supported the ones who were beaten! Meanwhile, at Aviva, all their working teams have chosen a different world cup team. Gemma and Shaun fly the England flag whilst the victors were Lily and Zoe.
TUESDAY 29th June
First job at Blickling Hall where the leader of the National Trust Biosurvey Team, Pete Brash met to talk about the increase in brown trout brought about by felling trees across the river to cause scouring which restored the open gravel beds where the fish can spawn. Silting over the years had caused a decline in numbers. Then, a few hours on the river to keep cool. Even cooler when the Ice Cream Boat came along with some refreshing ices!
WEDNESDAY 30th June
The first day of the Royal Norfolk Show and here's our 'extra' radio station. The only stand to have a Dalek as a security guard. Trouble is no-one gets inside and there's a pile of ashes indicating that at least some have tried even if they failed! I'm away the other side of the site looking at a 1912 millers dray being buffed up by Roger Roper. We apologise for his colourful use of the English language! Next door is Suffolk girl Cheryl with her horse ready braided up for the show ring. SEE SEPARATE POST ABOVE FOR MY FUNNIEST SHOW PICTURE EVER!
THURSDAY 1st JULY - Royal Norfolk Show day two.
Here's who I met at the Showground today. Head Steward Stephen Howlett told all about events in the Grand Arena and how timing was the critical factor in keeping everyone happy. Hiding "over The Hedge" (that's the name of the stand) John Birtles from the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association was showing visitors the cycle for growing crops such as wheat. Together with the eggs from the chickens kept there they were milling their own flour then baking their own bread! Meanwhile, on the BBC Radio Royal Norfolk Show stand, we were all taken aback when the usually retiring breakfast producer Stephen Martin took to the stage with a group of young volunteers to put on a mocked up radio production. We didn't give him the contract!
