Radio Car Travelogue 17 - 21 January 2011

It was Wednesday 12th January that an explosion in a cafe rocked the Rackheath Industrial estate just outside Norwich. The former USAF airbase is now home to many industries but luckily the gas explosion went off at nine at night so there were no injuries. However, Nick Hovey (pic) director of Tilia Properties who own much of the site, told me how carving knives, cutlery and crockery rained down hundreds of yards away. Most of the damage has now been assessed and they're busy helping the businesses affected to get back to normal working.
Woodrising near Hingham is where the PACT animal sancturay is based and George Rockingham this morning told of the man who'd been taken to hospital and called them because he couldn't look after his rabbits. There were over fifty of them and George now needs to find extra funds to innoculate and neuter them before they can go to new homes. Their number is 01362 821306 if you can offer to help in any way. Then I shot back into the city to George White Junior School. The burst pipe at Christmas meant that pupils couldn't return until yesterday. The extended holiday gave property services a chance to put everything right. Although back in use, there's still some work to finish off as I learnt from Bursar Elieen Hansell and Deputy Head Christine Watkinson.
It was a closely guarded secret so today (Wednesday) I wasn't on-air. Hear the story tomorrow morning on Breakfast with Chris Goreham. We surprised John Curtis at Catton Grove Primary School where the whole school assembled in the sports hall to welcome their own lollipop man. He's just become East Englands Best Lollipop Person 2010. He collected a trophy and £100 whilst the school receives £500 towards their funds. A modest man of 72 he's been in the job for 10 years and the pupils love him. One young chap stood up and said "John, you rock!" That just about sums it up!
Staff at Job Centres are on a 48hour strike. At Mountergate in Norwich the call centre was my destination this morning where I met up with Alan Warner PCS Young Member Officer and David Seagrave the site rep for PCS (Public & Commercial Services Union).
