With Sophie away on a planned break this week. We welcomed back a favourite from a while back, everyones favourite local weather girl, taking a break from parenthood for the morning. Julie reinger was our runner this morning trying out the new technology with navigator Ian in the Verv. David Whiteley was on Studio duty having had his coffee fill for the morning. Questmaster was sounding in better health and Glam Anna Perrott manned the phones. We started in Norwich at the Forum and got to the treasure at Strumpshaw Rectory.
