Crawford White of Aylsham has won a regional title for best butchers in the Countryside Alliance Awards. Another in a long line of awards so let's hope this bags him the national title too. At Sheringham we're talking about cafe culture. Increasingly we're seeking to sit at roadside cafe's as they do on the continent and, despite near freezing conditions I found Scott, Jordan, Tom and Nicola outside the newsagents in Sheringham opposite the railway station. They're actually here on holiday under canvass at Wells! Tougher than me I think.
Check out BBC Look East on our website for the survey into broadband speeds in Norfolk. Here's Kelvin Golding who runs Norfolk Scaffolding at Lenwade. He can't even get a BT landline and relies on a dongle for Vodafone to get anything. Really frustrating. While we're waiting to go on air he tells me about the Post Office ram raid so that's where I headed next. I interviewed Ian Hans who lives just across the road and came out at 0220 this morning to find this carnage. The truck used was later found abandoned. My pictures are on the news website and video on Look East today.
A proposal to add 4500 homes to Attleboroughs housing stock galvanised the Attelborough Community Team (ACT) who raised a petition with over 3000 signatures opposing the scheme. Their main objection is that there's no infrastructure or plan for employment, schools and other facilities. Left to right Richard Middleton (Chiar) Stephen Hinde, Ali Clabburn and Linda Aspland.
Friday and at Cantley Railway Cottages at the end of Burnt House Road near the marshes, human remains have been found. The Police are guarding the property on the other side of the railway crossing and investigations continue. On a lighter note, atSt. Catherines Church Hall Aylsham Road tomorrow, a sale of the excess goods donated to Hayley Potter whose home was destroyed by fire a month ago. It's being renovated right now but her friend Paula Hunnam (on the right of the pic) organised an appeal through Facebook. Such was the response that they can refurnish Hayleys home and all this is being sold off from 10am tomorrow. Proceeds will be split between Hayley and the Norfolk Fire Service to fund their programme of fitting fire alarms. All round community winners.
