Forward and the pool table

26th February 2018

Meet the guys at Forward, today could be the day that they get their new pool table.  We spoke about their need and why it's important on Friday's Show and it looks like by the end of play today they will be sorted!


They empower, enable and support vulnerable adults, especially those with learning difficulties, and those they interact with so they can lead the life they choose within the community.  

Make sure you listen to tomorrow.

Forward Day Care - Pool Table

23rd February 2018

Today I've been trying to help "Forward", King's Lynn.

They empower, enable and support vulnerable adults, especially those with learning difficulties, and those they interact with so they can lead the life they choose within the community.  



Their Pool table has been condemned, the users of the centre love their pool, and it’s a big social activity for them.  

They let other charities use their premises out of hours, unfortunately one of them had a problem with the pool table and lifted it up - when they tried to put it back down they broke the legs. Forward have been advised to get a "supreme" model as it will withstand the constant use, and is also up to the users leaning on it etc. because it will get quite a hammering from members!!

To get a new will be £500+, to try and get a 2nd hand one £200+!

Can you help?  Contact Forward on 01553 776910

The Brits 2018

22nd February 2018

For the first time in a few years I managed to convince my wife to watch the Brits, normally to be honest we both lose patience quite quickly with the awards which are more often than not quite pathetically presented in my opinion.  They never run smooth and are generally a bit of a disaster, this year to be honest wasn't much different.

Not sure what to make of Jake's hosting, Kendirick Lamar just laying on a cage for two minutes at the start of his set or the need for smashing up a Lamborghini on stage.   I'm still confused as to why Ed Sheeran was snubbed by the awards and even more so as to why Elton John managed to get his name wrong despite them being "best mates".

Congrats to all the winners, this year I managed to watch for 20 minutes before deciding I had better things to do, like sleep!

I get to go and see some amazing stuff in this job and yesterday was no different if a little out of the norm!  I've visited many schools and it's always great fun, yesterday however had the added edge that at Southery Primary it was "Pet Day".  The children were invited to bring their pets into the main hall, never work with children and animals I always told but I don't know why, everyone behaved themselves even the HORSE!

Failed the first time

5th February 2018

This morning Craig Bazarra was the star of the show after pranging his car a year to the day he failed his driving test by driving the wrong way up the road after just five seconds of leaving the Test Centre. 


To ease Craig's embarrasment or make it worse I'm not sure listeners shared their first time fails too.


Emma the contract cleaner - I failed my test because I left my indicator on for 2 miles after I’d turned! 😂😂😂

Jan Bradley - We'd just left the test centre and the examiner asked me to turn left at the roundabout but for some reason I just carried on and went straight across. He was not amused!

Mark - Fell off my Honda CB200 on the controlled stop in front of the chief examiner but still passed!

Phillip - Didn't use my mirrors enough and apparently from where the driving instructor was sitting it looked like I was speeding according to her lol

John - Wheel spun out of the test centre (nerves) and didn’t check my interior mirror once!!!!!

Becky - Went around some people walking on the road

Nicky - Panicked on the fly over . Mind you spent hours doing it over and over again so i wouldnt next time .

Nick - Did 40mph down bawsey bumps




And finaly it seems Craig isn't the only one to fail in this way.. Remember Amanda who used to present the show with me?


"Wrong way down a one way street and when he slammed on the brakes I said ‘what the hell do u think u r doing?!’ And he just pointed... "
