A bit of fun to kick off the week. To raise money for Sport Aid, Phil Owen and Ashley Wilson from Swinton Insurance in Norwich are doing a sponsored jail break. Their two female counterparts were given a 20 minute lead. 1. Off they go! 2. Broadcasting from the radio car at the station. 3. Jumping the barrier (not really!) 4. Missing the London train.

Last night the town council rejected the plan but it's now up to Broadland District Council to decide. We were joined by neighbour Geoff Heath who's convcerned about health issues over such masts and Marcus Piercy who owns the land said he had no intention of letting the mast be built on his land even if it was approved. L-R Graham, Geoff, Marcus and Sue.
