Have your say

It feels like Summer might finally be making an appearance! The sun is shining, birds are tweeting, and we’ve just celebrated our fantastic Nothing But The 90s event this weekend.

Always a massive hit, but even I was taken aback by the amount of people that came along, I hope they all enjoyed themselves, I certainly did! We’d love to hear from you and see pictures of your costumes.

We’re just about to begin collecting eggs for our Easter Egg Appeal, starting in Asda South Wootton tomorrow. Over the years the appeal has been a raging success, thanks to the continued support and generosity from the people of West Norfolk, Wisbech and Fakenham. It certainly makes me very proud to come from a town where children are thought about where there perhaps wouldn’t have had that much fun over the holiday period. If you want to see a full list of places we’re visiting, you can head to our website.

I had a wonderful couple of days in London recently. For what was meant to be a bit of a ‘break’ from work, it was never far from my mind as I crossed Westminster Bridge.

The resilience of the hundreds of thousands of Londoners and tourists I saw that day made me so proud to be British. It was such a difficult thing to read out the terrible atrocity that happened there, let alone to be living it every day. It just showed the strength of the people who live here, we keep calm and carry on.

As hard as it was reading about the attack to our listeners, I have so much respect for the emergency services that attended the scenes and risked their lives to save ours that day. PC Keith Palmer in particular, he and the three other victims; Aysha Frade, Kurt Cochran and Leslie Rhodes, they will be the ones who will be remembered.

So no matter how bad things get, always remember we as a country are strong and will not be beaten that easily. Don’t waste your hate on people who aren’t worth hating. Join together instead.
