Radio Car Travelogue 23 - 27 April 2012


Chris Roberts
North Walsham In Bloom is facing the hosepipe ban like so many other places. Chairman Chris Roberts is anxious to replace the old fibreglass boat near the railway station. An on-air appeal brings offers of two boats! Result.
Cllr. Wilby & Mark Harmer

John Mills & Dick Barker
Tackling obesity, South Norfolk District Council is prescribing exercise. At Wymondham Leisure Centre hekp is at hand from Community & Health Care worker Mark Harmer here showing Cllr. Martin Wilby the ropes. Leisure of another kind is having to watch the drought conditions. John and Dick are members of the Dereham & District Angling Club. At their waters here at Swanton Morley Fisheries. The new lake behind them is for younger members. Still under construction there's been a falling off in numbers of younger anglers.


Fudge makes herself comfortable
Adele,Sub Lt. Sally Spinks, David & CO Mark Janner Burgess

Peter takes Fudge for a river trip
It was Fudges big day out and she soon made herself at home in the studio during the Early Show. 

After we took the radio car to Riverside where the TS Nelson, the Sea Cadets training ship is moored opposite the station. Fudge jumped aboard the tender and got a trip up the river with Peter whilst I spoke to the CO and crew about their Royal visit. Prince Andrew was due at 11am so it was all hands on deck the get the boat, a former Swedish gunboat, ready for inspection. It's the Cadets centenary next month.
All aboard - and you Fudge.
 
The mystery signs



Featured on Steve Wright's show yesterday, we tried to solve the riddle of the signs that appeared. The first near Fiddlers Green close to Attleborough and another at Morley.
Horseboarding at the Game & Counrty Fair

Whissonsett Post Office
 This weekend it's the game and country fair on the Norfolk Showground. Event organiser Andy Grand pictured here with the horseboarders, Ros and Daniel. The horses are ridden around the arena pulling the boarder ( board pictured) They can achieve speeds in excess of 30mph so when they come off it's a real tumble!
Ivan Martin
Last job of the week and sadly it's the closure of Whissonsett Post Office. After 30 years Barbara Wheemes is calling it a day. Retiring on Saturday the shop and PO will close for good and lifelong resident Ivan says it's another sign of the changing times and like so many rural communities it's a great loss to the village.
