A breakfast meeting pig farmers was held this morning at Goodies Farm Shop just off the A140 near Pulham Market. Owner Stuart Gooderham (left) with South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon who would like to see clearer labelling of country of origin to help people decide what to buy. The high price of feed is pushing up prices. Stuart butchers his own meat. He has to pay high for feed and the high price at the counter reduces sales. He's in a no-win situation.
Next to County Hall where Unison members protested about the budget cuts. Pictured is Branch Secretary Jonathan Dunning.
Diss rail station has a problem with parking and today, Tuesday, work begins to add an extra 60 spaces previously used for shunting. It'll take about six months said Tony Palmer (pic) Town Councillor, South Norfolk Councillor and Chair of Diss Railway Station Group.
Next to Coltishall Primary School where Abels Removals brought a truck to demonstrate how difficult it is for a driver of a big vehicle to spot youngsters on the roadside. Pictured left to right are Jemma, MD of Abels John Watson, Abby, Jacob and Gus.
Wednesday and at Weston Longville I get to meet three of the horses rescued two years ago from terrible conditions in Amersham. Left is RSPCA Officer Kirsty Withnall, Jerry to pony and new owner Tamsin Conyers at the Weston Equestrian Centre. The to Swardeston where the Police are auctioning off found but unclaimed property like this row of bikes. In December Norwich Crown Court heard how Lance Lewis made over a million pounds illegally by selling drugs. Now they're selling his BMW X5, Jaguar X Type and Ford Transit. There's also a forty foot truck but it was too big to get into the sale room!
Friday on the oil trail. There's a warning that theft of heating oil is on the increase. Michael Skinner (left) had almost £1000 worth stolen from his home in Banham. He's now stepped up the security by calling in expert Rob Jones (right) who runs Broadland Tank Services at Tibenham. Robs seen it all and even gets stopped by the police who're now on the lookout for the unscrupulous thieves. There are various thins you can do including an alarm that sounds in the house if the tank suddenly goes down quicker than the boiler can use it. If you want to speak to Rob his number is 01379 677126.
