Monday in Fakenham. The new surgery is about to open at midday and Chief Executive John Fraser shows us around the Y shaped building with all new facilities. In the town, Papworths butchers are doing weel. Sam Papworth was so pleased to win carcasse of the year - that's a beast from his own stock not him! Then back to the parish church. We were there on Thursday last for the start of the Christmas tree festival. At the weekend thieves broke in through the window (now patched) and stole £200. The response from listeners and well wishers has been tree-mendous!!
Just one of the many families that benefit from the Toys & Tins Appeal run jointly between the Salvation Army and BBC Radio Norfolk. Juste Davenport with her four boys is a single parent and active member of SPIN (Single Parents In Norfolk) who says that the Christmas gift parcels from the appeal make a big difference to their Christmas. Thank you.
Just look at Holt Lowes - a 110 acre open sire next to the Country Park where 8 Dartmoor ponies have been put out to graze. I spent an hour and a half with Simon Harrap trying to locate them without luck. Hence the panoramic view instead of the close-up of a pony!
The Norfolk Car Club now have vehicles for use at Aylsham, Reepham and Norwich. With their own parking spaces marked, Oliver Chastney lives near to this one. He says since he joined the scheme his annual motoring costs are LESS than what he used to pay for insurance!
At Newton Flotman they've decorated the church with 300 angels. Why? Because they need to raise £120k to repair the tower. It opens Friday witha Xmas Fayre at the school on Saturday after which they'll parade them back to the church.
Friday and on the pickett line at Colmans Norwich, GMB spokesman Ivan Mercer explains why they've come out against the proposed pension changes by Unilever.
Struggling to save enough money for a deposit on your own home is hard enough today but Rachel Smith and her husband heard of Broadland council's plan to help couples from rented accomodation who are already paying more in rent than a mortgage would cost them!
To round off the week the remarkable Nora Long who'll be honoured today for forty years service to the Norfolk & Norwich hospital as a volunteer and she plans to keep doing it!!
