Monday at Holt Country Park which has just won its seventh consecutive Green Flag award. 1. Paul Ingham countryside and parks manager for NNDC. 2. A view of the park. 3. Manor Park cricket ground where I met up with Norfolk coach and player Cris Brown to talk about the annual cricket festival currently being held at the Horsford ground.
The Royal Norfolk Regimental Museum is on the move from its premises at the former law courts up the hill into the Rotunda in the Castle Museum. Curator Kate Thaxton is looking forward to the greater footfall past her door but is desperate to find a home for the nine foot statue of two soldiers pictured here.
IT'S FREE to a good home. It's not stone but actual fabric that's been sprayed. It isn't waterproof however so needs to be indoors. It's nine feet high because they used to be called the Ninth Foot Regiment!
At North Creake I met up with Arborist Dan Yeomans from Tree Vista to talk about tree safety in light of the verdict over the Felbrigg estate incident. He was about to sart work on this beech tree beside the church and told me that an expert can soon tell just what needs to be done to make the tree safe and there are many signs that he can look for when making a diagnosis. If you're unsure call in an expert!
