Radio Car Travelogue 31 August - 3 September 2010

Tuesday 31st August and a trip to Stokesby on the River Bure near Acle where there's a new micro-brewery in a shed! Pictured left to right, Lesley & Carlos Branquinho with partner Kevin Hopkins who runs the Ketts Tavern on Ketts Hill and The Rose on Queens Road in Norwich. They brew bespoke beers for the pubs. Three cask ales, Classic & Legend already on sale and Platinum Blonde just coming on line. Eventually they want to start brewing at the back of a refurbished Rose!
Out at Swardeston this morning for the auction by the Joint Economic Crime Unit for Norfolk & Suffolk. Left, auctioneer Brian Martin with the computers and sound gear and in the background, jewellery, designer handbags and sunglasses and more electrical stuff like tellies and hi-fi's and sound systems. Confiscated from convicted criminals the money goes back into the criminal justice system and the government's coffers. Right, the two cars in the auction. A silver VW Touran and last years Audi TTS Quatro with just 7,900 miles on the clock!
Thursday through the mist to Strumpshaw RSPB REserve by the railway line and Erica Howe tells us about the increase in bitterns which are slowly moving inland. Numbers are increasing but still not high so you're lucky to hear the males 'boom'! Apparently the female of the species is very quiet - hmmm. Not so pleasant are the sporadic fires that keep starting in a block of flats at Pottergate West in Norwich. Arson is suspected by Norfolk Police but no-one has been charged. Meanwhile these residents live in fear of a major blaze and some have even taped up their letterboxes. The fire service fitted smoke alarms in the communal entrance hall and stairwell yesterday and the City Council have sent someone to advise them on safety. It remains to be seen if another fire is reported.
The topic for Friday is coastal erosion. Pic 1 Malcolm Kirby and Diana Wrightson look out over the cliffs (pic 2) at Happisburgh. That's Diana's house perched on the edge in the dustance. By this winter it could be down on the beach! Pic 3 Environment Minister Richard Benyon who's here to see for himself and to talk with local MP's and councillors about what can be done to help apart from the obvious money solution.
