Holiday Monday and it's the tenth Fairy Fayre at Holt Hall. Abbie Panks (right) showed me round the grounds where something like three thousand visitors will come over the weekend to teach children about conservation (and have lots of fun) Even the pA is powered by a bike!
After 13 years at the helm of the Air Defence Radar Museaum, Doug Robb hands over the reins to Chris Morshead. Doug has been a great ambassador and I'm sure that this unique collection will continue to be an iconic Norfolk attraction. Meanwhile, at Blofield Heath, Janice Scott has just had solar panels fitted by Damien Bakers company RenEnergy for FREE! The deal is that any extra energy they provide will be sold back to the grid. It's a great scheme. Check it out at http://www.yoursolarexchange.co.uk/
All set for the land speed record for an ALL wood bike. Michael Thompson from Potter Heigham with the Splinter Bike. An amazing machine built in his worshop in the back garden. The rider will be ex triathlete James Tully and the attempt at the record will have to be made before September when the bike goes on show in the Victoria & Albert Museum.
From bike to trike and this old beauty has been refurbished by the Royal engineers at Swanton Morley ready for a 1500 mile trek across the Alps to raise awareness for Disability Motoring UK. Pictured are CE Graham Footer with Director of Policy & Campaigns Helen Dolphin at the driving helm. They're based in Ashwelthorpe and we had reports that there were wild peacocks roaming the village. Adrian heard we were at DMUK and came to escort me to his home where there were five peacocks strutting about. One neighbour, John told me that they're a nuisance but there's not much can be done about them.
