Radio Car Travelogue 25 - 29 Oct 2010


Monday and resurfacing of Ketts Hill Norwich is about to begin. The heavy planer has been waiting overnight and I'm joined by Grant Ewans from Greens Gym. They're allowing members affected by the closure to park at their site but for many, it will mean a detour for at least the next week whilst the hill is resurfaced. Some say it could take up to ten days and nearby Ketts Hill bakery will go short of the passing trade that usually pulls up outside.

Despite a transmission hiccup this morning we finally got this item to air from New Buckenham where father and son John & James Holland run Castle Hill Garage. Surrounded by Reliant Robins, we celebrate 75 years of the three-wheeler. They have around 30 of them!

As the EDP celebrates its 140th birthday, we look at the reprint of the very first edition in 1870 and see which businesses are still trading today. One such is Irelands Auctioneers and senior partner Mike Gamble goes through their ledgers comparing prices from then and now. Remarkably, in 1903 you could buy a farm house, barn, stables and two acres of pasture for £149.00. If only!

Thursday at Sprowston Parish Council offices where they've had solar panels fitted. Left, John Fisher from Broadland District Council and right June Hunt, clerk to the PC. She says they're now saving 65% of their water heating costs. The authority hopes to encourage a comapny to foot the bill for fitting in order to reap the rewards of selling the excess energy generated back to the national grid. Great scheme if it works! Next, sweet chestnuts by the bucketful. This is Paul Woodhouse from the Woodland Trust. They're hoping to register not just these ancient trees but many more in the countryside in order to protect them in the future. If you know of a really old tree worth preserving then go to http://www.ancienttreehunt.co.uk/

Friday and this Sunday is the RSPB's Feed The Birds Day so I've come to the home of Erica Howes parents to look at their garden. Erica advises us to put food out for all the birds prior to the onset of winter but they won't feed here whilst we're standing by it!
