Radio Car Travelogue 2 - 6 April 2012












Back in the saddle after a fortnights R&R. The hosepipe ban is upon us a Doreen Medler runs a company that supplies turf. They're allowed to water it but don't have to as it's despatched soon after arriving from Essex. However, her customers are cancelling orders because THEY can't water it after it's laid! Plenty of water at Cromer where the converted toilet block has been transformed into these smart units. Ben Kewell will run Glide Surf School from one side and on the other will be the North Norfolk Surf Life-Saving Club. It's on the Promenade near the pier.

Mary Portas has £100k to give to towns across the country for regeneration. Six in Norfolk shortlisted are Thetford, Diss, Great Yarmouth, Hunstanton and two that I visited. First in Aylsham with Hamish Melville from Broadland DC and Chiar of Business & Enterprise Deborah Blake. They're hoping to be one of the two picked. Another is North Walsham. The Atrium is a purpose built fabulous facility that I never knew about. Look at the theatre! It's run by April Vogel who hopes to get funding that will exploit its full potential.


With the hosepipe ban coming into effect 5th April, here's Barbara Lockwood whose bungalow was modified by her late husband who diverted all the gutter downpipes to feed the front and rear garden to maximise any rain we might get. Meanwhile, Paul Nobel at Highway Garden Centre just can't get any more water butts. The recent run on them has meant getting more stock. Stock that won't arrive in time to quench demand.


Finally, a fire at a thatched cottage on Bullacebush Lane Blofield left the building with no roof and water damage. Fire officer Dean Howes told how the alarm had been raised at 11pm but at 8am they were still damping down hot spots.

It's Easter and Pastor Ian Savory shows me the wooden cross fastened to the wall outside Oak Grove Chapel. On Sunday it'll be taken down and put inside the church for the service.

SEE next weeks Travelogue about a previous thatch fire renovation.
