Radio Car Travelogue 12 - 16 December 2011







Apart from the Tea stall just Christine Boggis with her plants and Ken Allen with his fresh veg were at Stalham Market today on the old station yard car park. Mary Portas the retail guru is suggesting that stalls becaome part of the street scene and they both agree. Something needs to be done to revibe the high streets across the land. Ken wants to know why the £10,000 Tesco gave them for the market hasn't been spent yet. If you want to spend a penny you have to go to the other end of the street to the supermarket!!


Deputy Head Teacher at Taverham Junior School, Adam Mason told us how they've been robbed three times recently. Thieves stole the gas cylinders that heat the outside classrooms one of which has now been closed. It will cost them £1000 out of funds that would have helped the children. Nearby, at Thorpe Marriott I met a remarkable man called Tony Conner who's looked after his wife for seven years now. Penny has dementia and requires 24/7 care which Tony provides at their home. The garage has been converted to a special bedroom. Tony advertised for a part-time personal assistant for 5 hours a week and has had no replies.


So, the NDR or Northern Distributor Road is likely to be built. Starting at the Postwick hub with junctions at Plumstead Road, Salhouse Road, Wroxham Road, North Walsham Road and the airport before termination at the Holt/Cromer roads. Nick Bond (left) of Visit Norwich welcomes the sceme and says that it will benefit the city whilst Fran Whymark at Rackheath said opinions there were divided. He himself thinks they'll benefit although the road will pass just 200 metres from his bungalow on Vera Road.


Norwich already holds the record for the shortest double yellow lines but now Colegate has a pair measuring 20 inches and Tiny Little from the Alexandria Pub on Stafford Street has had these painted on the road opposite coming in at a diminutive SEVENTEEN inches. Can the City Council do any better in the future? Recycling at Dereham resumes this morning with a brand new hi-tech yard with compacters, crushers and even a shop to buy unwanted goos. County Councillor Bill Borrett who's in charge of Environment and Waste gave me the honour of depositing the first paper to be recycled - Chris Gorehams opening script for this morning's show!
