Radio Car Travelogue 26 - 30 Dec 2011








Boxing Day in the early hours they came to spend. These grainy pics show the queue for the Next Sale in Norwich. Next indeed, next to the peace camp which sprang up to highlight the excesses of the capitalist society! Wonder what the shoppers thought as they lugged huge bags full of discounted clothes through the silent streets of the city?


Sales in the City were slow starting this morning unlike the queue that formed at NCFC's ticket office. Tottenham tonight, Fulham next Saturday and the game they wanted the tickets for was Chelsea!


It's a time for new lambs and Roger & Sue Banks at Holly Croft Farm near Great Ellingham have had a dozen over the Christmas period but none so troublesome as Christmas day lamb Rudolph pictured here. At the East Anglia Tennis & Squash club I met a man with a most unusual occupation. Liam Nolan makes his living by restringing tennis raquets. He's applied his skills for the most famous players and travels the world teaching others just how it should be done!


Holly Stolworthy from the Sealife Sanctuary at Hu8nstanton met me on the beach at Old Hunsatnton where the sperm whale was washed up on Christmas eve. Already dead, the tides have failed to take it back out to sea so now they may have to dismember it onshore and take it away. It's attracted large crowds but it's such a sad sight.


My last assignment of 2011 is to Denver Windmill where Lindsay & Mark Abel are still trying to get reapirs completed after the sails began to break up during a school visit back in October. As you can see, the stocks are still missing and they're having to grind the flour with an old machine. Naturally, sales of their flour are down and they hope that 2012 will bring the help that they need so much to carry on at this Norfolk attraction. Part of our heritage.
