Children's public speaking at KLA

20th March 2015

Last night I was invited to King's Lynn Academy by Soroptmist International along with The Mayor of King's Lynn & West Norfolk, Councillor Barry Ayres.  It was my job to judge some amazing pupils from Reffley, Greyfriars, South Wootton, St Marthas, Whitefriars, St Michaels and St Edmunds Primary Schools. 



The pupils were amazing, as Introducer, Speaker and Voter of thanks they chose to speak on one of five topics.

  • What is happiness?
  • Why don't sportswomen gain the same level of recognition and remuneration as their male counterparts?
  • How do you think climate change will affect you?
  • Who are the influential woman of today, and why?
  • Do Children in developing countries value education more than those in the UK?

I'd struggle to talk about these subjects and these children are only 10 years old or younger.  You should also remember that they were standing in front of around 100 people, strangers, friends and family which is very daunting.  There is now way I could have done that at their age!

Well done to all that took part and thanks for inviting me!

The best place to live in King's Lynn

18th March 2015



Happy Birthday Neighbours, the residents of Ramsey Street are celebrating 30 years on the box today, but I reckon they'd struggle to prove its as good as Bevis Way in Gaywood! 

Out of a potential 157,000 who could have raved about their close, street or road it was the amazing community from Bevis Way who got in touch on Twitter, Facebook and text.

Why is it such a good place to live.... Listen

Frozen Fever

16th March 2015

Will there, won't there?  A Frozen sequel could be on the cards, they keep changing their minds!  If you've been to the cinema lately you may of spotted/loved/or even suffered a little bit of frost bite.  A Frozen mini has been showing before the main attraction at cinemas since Friday and as you may expect it features another song which I'm guessing by now your daughter already knows of by heart.

If your children haven't seen it, would like to see it again a thousand times or your kids would simply like to learn the words to entertain you, the video is below.

What was KLFM's Secret Sound?

13th March 2015

On December 15th last year the quest to solve KL.FM's Secret Sound began with over 20 wrong guesses every single week, but tonight we finally discovered what the Secret Sound was.

Aaron a delivery driver from Dersingham was pretty sure he had the answer despite his other half’s reservations, she thought his guess was a silly one!


 Listen to the call that mafde him £840 richer!

Nelson Academy, Downham Market. Future Fairs

6th March 2015

Today I took Home-Time to Nelson Academy in Downham Market for their Future Fair.  The Future Fairs aim is to inspire our students and give them an insight into what jobs are open to them beyond primary school.

It was great to meet the year 8's & 9's with their parents to talk about a career on the radio or in the media whilst letting watch & be part of a live radio show.    I'm pretty sure I discovered one or two future KL.FM stars!
