Radio Car Travelogue 25 - 29 April 2011












Bank holiday Monday and I met up with Mike Lorenz who owns the Whalebone pub at the bottom of Constitution Hill in Norwich. We're talking about Norwich City FC, Sky TV and the possible effects that promotion to the Premier League might have on pub trade in the city. It costs him £10,000 a year to put the matches on his big screen.


Tuesday and down the A11 at Thetford I met Town Manager Susan Glossop. A quarter of a million pounds will be spent to update, improve and enhance the towns shops and environs as part of the ongoing 'Moving Thetford Forward' project that she co-ordinates. Down by the river I sat and had a chat with Captain Mainwaring. He wasn't very talkative!

At the Wolf Brewery in Besthorpe, manager Des D'Souza showed me the casks they're producing with beer for the Royal wedding. It's a pale ale called Royal Flush despite Kates hair being more of a dark brown!


Wednesday and a chilly start in Cromer where fly tippers have been caught on camera by Environmental Protection. They installed a camera at Cromer Furniture Ltd. where manager Shane Brown has had to clear up the mess left right outside their door. Posters have been made using the camera images to see if anyone can identify the perpetrators.


Thursday and at Hickling they're excited about the start of their new village hall. At a ceremony today work will begin and completion by December. Nick Baker is a Trustee of the Hickling Playing Field Charity and Harvey Gibbons is Chairman of the Pheonix Trust. The hall is costing around £800,000. Just down the road is the Greyhound pub where hosts Debbie & Tony Woodman are putting on an afternoon of Royal wedding street party entertainment. Open to all with parking at the nearby Methodist chapel, there'll be live bands and competitions rounded off with the wet T-shirt competition. Now I wonder which of them thought that one up?


Friday and the Royal Wedding bank holiday means communities are having street parties. It's a great way for new communities to bond and that's what Gary and Katy are hoping for at Queens Hills Costessey. The kids are helping to blow up nearly a thousand balloons to make an archway to their afternoon party near the school. And then it's still a bank holiday weekend!
