Quidenham, Quidhampton, Quendon, Queen Charlton, Quemerford and Quenington, to name a few

West Acre resident and Parish Councillor Jeremy Cameron is a compulsive walker. For some reason that is difficult to fathom, he has walked from Quebec to Detroit, New York to California, London to Venice, Hook of Holland to Istanbul. And other equally exotic places.

Looking for a new challenge, he decided to visit all forty-five places in England beginning with Q. Jeremy planned on taking two years to complete his quest, but some serious unwanted encounters with SERIOUS illness added another three years to his journeys.

Having reached Quaking Houses, the last on his list of Qs, Jeremy started to put pen to paper. The result is Quite Quintessential. Jeremy, pictured right, recently celebrated the launch of his latest book with an event at Jarrolds in Norwich. He traveled there, and back, by car. Wise man.

What a load of rubbish!

Keen cyclers Lucy and Oscar Birkbeck can’t stand seeing all the rubbish on the road side, so they recently walked from the Vicarage crossroads to the ‘T’ junction near Swaffham armed with a roll of bags to collect it. After a happy but messy three hours they had accumulated an impressive collection of twenty bags (!), one sack, three tyres and some car parts. Subsequently, over half of the collection was recycled.

For the time being the road and its verges are clean and it is a joy to travel along. The next target for the dynamic ecologically-minded duo is the Walton Road.

Lucy and Oscar are keen to hear from anyone who has recently seen a car with only one wheel and missing some essential parts.
