Paul Gaulder is the chocolatier at a new venture at Broome Industrial Park. "GNAW" is the brand name for a range of flavoured bars. They hope to produce 150,000 this year. Any new venture is brave in this climate but if it can make it now it can only be a bright future for the chocolate being produced with passion behind it. Then I find myself with Daphne Hathaway again. We met three years ago when she ran the London Marathon. This year she's walking the course for the Alzheimers Society. Daphne lost her father only yesterday but bravely spoke of her battle with cancer and how she wants to give something back to those who've been there for her as almost all of her family have dealt with Alzheimers. She still cares for her husband despite her own condition. One brave woman. You can sponsor her at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.co/DaphneHathaway
A team of students are making an animation for the Royal wedding to be screened across the country on the BBC's Big Screens. In the style of Creature Comforts, the audio has been collected and now they'll match that to characters like the Dalek and the Hulk! Sounds like a challenge so they've got some help.

Wednesdays first report from outside the home on Mill Close Lakenham where yesterday 12.30pm Police were called and found a woman and two children with knife wounds. A man was arrested in Great Yarmouth yesterday afternoon and at this time was still being questioned about the incident. On a lighter note, I went to Bowthorpe where nurse Linda Mortimer showed me Essie the cat who was found 70 miles away in Peterborough. Good job she was chipped and returned home. This cat is an escapologist so it's no use trying to keep her indoors. She'll even get out of the upstairs windows!
Thursday at Norwich International with Det.Sgt. Gary Lilley of Special Branch. Project Pegasus has just been launched encourageing people involved with aviation in Norfolk to be vigilant around the 70+ small airfields we have in the county. Smuggling drugs and tobacco and even weapons into the country is often done using small aircraft flying under the radar. Talking of flying, 250' in the air, a platform has been erected half way up the spire of Norwich Cathedral. A pair of Peregrine Falcons are living there. The male had an earlier mate who he chucked out when the new young female arrived. There's two camera's for you to view them on the Cathedral site and Nigel Middleton (pic centre) from the Hawk & Owl Trust let me get this shot through his binocular.
