EDP Competition Winner's Balloon Flight


Online competition winners had the flight of their lives when they took off over Norfolk in a hot air balloon.

The six lucky winners, who all answered a series of questions correctly on www.edp24.co.uk, flew from Norwich in the EDP-sponsored balloon owned by Broadland Balloon Flights and operated by Richard Nash.

Debra Rumsby, from Spixworth; Madeleine Corbett, Beeston Regis; Donna Gilbert, Newton Flotman; Peter Crundwell, Swaffham; and, Paul Macro, Norwich, each took a friend. Anne O’Maolain, from Thetford, was unable to make the trip so sent friends Lawrence Bradbury and Rod Humby in her place.

Paul Macro said: “Thanks to all at the EDP and Broadland Balloon Flights for fulfilling a life-long ambition to glide over Norwich in a hot air balloon. The flight, crew and the whole experience was simply wonderful - and the landing was textbook!”

Debbie Rumsby added: “Apart from getting up so early my husband and I enjoyed the whole flight experience. Richard was very friendly, totally in control and made you feel very safe.

“The team were organised and everyone got involved in putting the balloon away. The champagne at the end was a nice finishing touch. I would recommend anyone to try it, but if you’re not a morning person I would recommend the evening flight.”

Mr Nash pilots about half the flights operated by Broadland Balloon Flights, which take off from Norwich and Brome, near Eye, and have been running for nearly 20 years, allowing more than 20,000 people to experience the hot air trips.

He said: “I never get tired of it. No two flights are the same, that’s part of the adventure. You go home with a warm glow, some unique photographs and memories that will stay with you for years to come.”
