Radio Car Travelogue 11-15 October

Monday and the County Council is to rethink scrapping all of the planned nursery projects. Still with an uncertain future is Hevingham Primary where Head Teacher Binks Neate-Evans is philosophical about the future. Although a great deal of enthusiasm has gone into their plans they're going to forge ahead whatever the outcome from County Hall. The existing prefab building will have to do for now. At least they've been spared all the disruption of the building work which should have started this week. The cost of the new nursery would have been £600,000 and the decision will be announced later today.
Tuesday at Honingham just off the A47. Since the new roundabout was installed at the accident blackspot with the Mattishall Road junction, queueing traffic has been tempted to cut through Honingham Village. Chairman of the Parish Council Brian Winchester (1) has monitored the numbers at peak times and wants the Highways Agency and Norfolk County Council to do something about it. The situation is under review at present. It was murder trying to cross the A47 (2) as traffic wanting to turn off blocks your exit if like me you want to get on to the Weston Longville Road. Thank you the van driver who stopped to let me through.At Taverham Garden Centre I met General Manager Stuart Clancy and Zoe Dunford from the John Innes Centre (3) We're talking about flowers and the fact that striped ones like these lillies (4) are more attractive to the honey bee whose numbers are in sharp decline.
Wednesday, Asistant Director of Nursing at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital told us about the team about start patrolling the grounds of the hospital to prevent people from smoking anywhere on site. It costs them £50,000 a year to clean up around the site. The trial will last for three months. At Snetterton, the World Horse Welfare centre was where we discussed horse obesity! Yes, that's right. In the pic left to right, Sue Hodgkins Centre Manager, Lucky the horse (weight just right) and Dr. Theresa Holland from the horse feed manufacturer Dodson & Horrell. The horses in the study will have head cams to record what they eat and leg sat navs to plot their movements. Hi tech horse indeed!
Thursday morning I'm in Sheringham (again) looking at the proposed site of the Tesco supermarket. Today, the planning committee meet to decide between this and the Waitrose site on the Weybourne Road. As it is, they choose Tesco's proposal but it's not over yet. There could be an appeal. Pics left to right. The Fire Station which will be replaced with by a new one across the road on the site of this old house (2). The Community Centre (3 foreground) the adjacent Fie Station and behind the block of flats that will go to vacate the site for the Tesco Store with access at the rear to the High Street by the railway line.
Friday grey and drizzly at Mileham on the back road to King's Lynn. This village store was going to close when the owner wanted to retire but the community took it on and very successfully. Now they've got the Norfolk Rural Community Council to run the Post Office. Pictured left is shop manager Colin Fisher with Peter Smith from the NRCC.
