Radio Car Travelogue 26 - 30 September 2011





Cabinet member for Planning and Transportation at the County Council, Graham Plant was outlining the problems facing the free bus pass scheme. A campaign starts today called "Fair Fares". He says the passes are not under threat but the financial implications are that some bus services, especially in rural areas, may be cut to save funds.

From the bus station in Great Yarmouth it was a short trip across the Haven Bridge. This lifting bridge is a very busy link to the town and esential safety works means there'll be some disruption. Temporary traffic lights will replace those at the junction with Hall Quay whilst pedestrians will find that there's only one side of the bridge in use. It should take a few weeks and will cost £70,000.

Assistant Chief Fire Officer for Norfolk Fire Service, Roy Harold met me at the Kingfisher Restaurant at Walcott, partly owned by Graham French as we talked about the new parliamentary act to help with planning for future flooding. In Norfolk almost a hundred thousand homes and businesses are at risk.




A beautiiful dawn over Cromer although the gloomy news is that Youngs Seafood may close with the loss of 230 jobs. On the left, local fisherman John Davies with the town Mayor, Greg Hayman. Greg partly blames the government but hopes that the town will pull through should

the worst happen

.

Thursdays trip takes me to the NEWS recycling centre at Longwater Lane Costessey where Mark Allen and Bill Borrett explain how 45% of waste is now recycled in Norfolk - up one and a half percent. Food waste recycling is making the difference .Meanwhile, at Briston, a recycled Romany caravan ( a bowtop) is being hired out for weddings etc. by Debra Kidd whose family rescued it and renovated it. Delivered to your doorstep as a static accommodation she'll be featured soon in the EDP magazine. Look at the website at http://www.norfolkromanydreams.co.uk/


Friday in Aylsham Market Place where Town Clerk Mo Anderson-Dungar shows off their certificate for making the town plastic bag free. It's been three years now since their campaign began with much success. From today in Wales they're charging 5p for every bag issued.
For their part in the Norfolk Food Festival, Aylsham has put the farmers market in the town hall where this evening a meal from local produce has been a sell-out success. Pictured left to right, Roger Willis and Giles Margesson from Slow Food Aylsham and market manager Debra Kidd (see yesterday with her Romany caravan) Possibly the only person ever to have had the radio car broadcast two days running!
