Radio Car Travelogue 6 - 10 September 2010


Monday 6th September at an empty playground before 8am. School's back today and the traffic will increase. It's the start of our "Safe To School" campaign. If you see me out in the radio car ask me for a free reflective strappy! Then to county hall where members of Unison are protesting at Council plans to cut services. In this case Connexions. A decision is forthcoming later in the day.

On my best behaviour again at South Walsham with Ena Mallett, the 7th Dan black belt Jui Jitsu fitness trainer who's also the lollipop lady for Fairhaven Primary School! It's our Safe To School week and I'm giving out free luminous slap bands which go like hot cakes.

Wednesday morning at Thorpe St.Andrew at the home of Eric Kett who's considering the application to build on land nearby. He believes the woodland around Plumstead Road East should be preserved and not built upon. The council will consider the plans at the end of the month. There could be opposition. Then on to Brundall for our Safe To School campaign and the local Speedwatch volunteers (left to right - Peter, Sarah and Sharon) Whilst we're broadcasting there are two recorded incidents and although some people don't like the concept, it's a fact that Speedwatch teams do help reduce motorists speed particularly so near to schools.

Thursday finds the radio car outside the Van Dahl factory shoe shop where company chairman Simon Goodman meets local resident Roy Squire. They're both concerned about the council plot behind the iron fence. It used to be garages but they were pulled down and now there's a proposal to build a 19 bed hostel operated by the St.Edmunds Trust. Simon wants to sell his property for new premises and thinks the value will drop if the hostel is built there. Roy says there's already to many rehabilitation type establishments in the area which is predominantly residential but he also thinks it's not a suitable place because of the nearby school, nursery and playgroup. On to Notre Dame High School for our Safe To School feature. Here some of the new students get to wear one of our free fluorescent slappies (or strappies) Looking on are teacher Neil Cully (Deputy Head) and Mary Roche, Transport Policy Manager for Norfolk County Council.
On the eve of our 30th birthday, Radio Norfolk tracked down the new mum who was interviewed after giving birth to the first baby born in Norfolk on that day. Here she is - Sally Budds. Son Ryan (now 30!) gets married this year. Sally can't believe it when she heard the recording played back to her. Then, Safe To School and Lodge Lane Infant School with head teacher Andy Lovell. They've got a problem with parking ay school times and have to keep an atytendant on the gates to stop people coming into the staff car park. Outside the road is gridlocked as I try to leave!
