Radio Car Travelogue 3 - 7 October 2011





Over the weekend our newsdesk took a call from Phil Clarke at his fruit and veg shop. It's opposite the boarded up Shemakers pub which has been closed for six years. As a consquence, locals use the car park but mysteriously, signs had appeared threatening a fine for parking. Phil spoke to the owner of the property who knew nothing about it so I went with the rdio car this morning. Subsequently, after our broadcast, the service provider came on the show to explain the situation. Although clamping had been mentioned he said that his company has nothing to do with such a practice. The signs have been removed and we'll follow up any further activity there.


Just outside Swaffham there are many acres growing carrots for supermarkets but agronomist Pete Saunders has a special row growing that are yellow, cream and even white. It's a trial of different coloured carrots and the taste is much sweeter. We plucked them out of the ground, gave them a wipe and ate them on air. Very crunchy and definitely sweeter, but will the public go for strange coloured carrots?


Our pig farming industry is under pressure to maintain the high standards of production. At the moment it's running at a loss and a campaign starts today to show people that buying British pork - even for a few pence more - makes for good sense and quality. Look for the red tractor on the label next time you buy otherwise farmers like Richard Lilwall may just stop producing the quality pork products.


Thursday. Over 32,000 people are waiting for social housing in the county. In Breckland the figure is over 1400. Gordon Parttridge is responsible for social housing and empty homes in the area. He announced a new initiative to encourage homeowners to bring houses back into use. They don't have any council stock to sell so that's one sourse of income they'll have to manage without.


A tempestuous dawn at Cromer on Friday but Town Mayor Greg Hayman bikes down to the pier to tell us how they're taking part in our Happy Hour scheme at the end of October. A volunteer litter pick on the beach, As he said, if the wind is as strong as today they'll be chasing it. The, on the spur of the moment I visited Cromer market. Last time we were there 11 months ago it was dying on its' feet with just two stalls. One was Ian and Karl Jaggers plant stall (seen here with a regular customer). They're pleased that they still come here on a Friday morning.
