Acle and District Good Neighbour Scheme

We’re launching the Acle and District Good Neighbour Scheme on 14th April.

This is a voluntary organisation where people who need a bit of assistance can phone a central number and a volunteer will be asked to help out. All volunteers will be checked through the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB).

Services that might be included are transport to appointments at the doctors’ surgey, or at a hospital (45p per mile will be charged for petrol), occasional gardening, dog walking, help around the house, collecting shopping or  library books or just a cup of tea and a chat.

If you are interested in joining as a volunteer please phone Angela Bishop on  07956 199 356 or email her on [email protected]

Come along to the launch at the Acle Annual Parish Meeting on 14th April at 7.30 pm in the Acle Methodist Hall on Bridewell Lane to find out more.

If you need help, or know of someone who needs a bit of assistance, please ring the Scheme’s mobile number on: 07538 532 796, preferably after 14th April.
