Radio Car Travelogue 30 Jan - 3 Feb 2012










After the 'old girl' died on me last week we now have 'daughter of radio car'! Here they are nestled together whilst the fate of 'mum' is decided. I like the carpet in the new one!!



All this week we're doing a feature on 'made in Norfolk' and Monday found me on the old runway of RAF Sculthorpe, now Tattersett Business Park where Listawood produces ceramic and printed goods for the promotional market. MD Alex Turner showed me their cabinet of awards and their latest product, a mug with bacteria resistant coating - progress since their first fridge magnet.



Tuesday at Rackheath where'made in Norfolk' discovered the print works that produces bags for bread and all those plastic covers that magazines are sold in these days. Neil Squance is works manager. Over at Bowthorpe, Sinclair International has sales and marketing manager Tim Watkins watching over millions of sticky labels that go on your fruit around the world. They also manufacture the machines that put the labels on although he didn't agree with me that they must be 'fruit machines'!


Kelvin Hewett-Allard at Cantley makes jumps for the show ring and very colourful they are too. On a bitterly cold morning the offcuts make for a cosy fire and his wife bakes exceedingly good rolls and fills them with smokey bacon. Yum!


Thursday morning just outside Attleborough an anonymous looking industrial unit is the production centre for a worldwide manufacturer of kyaks. Tootega is run by Johnny Butcher the marketing manager, James Dennis director and Steve Giles director.They showed me the production line and the warehouse. They're planning to grow soon and have a product that's truly 'made in Norfolk'!
