    Acle and District Good Neighbour Scheme

    This is a voluntary organisation where people who need a 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). The Scheme is funded by grants from Broadland District Council, Norfolk Rural Community Council, Acle Parish Council and by local fundraising.

    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 Pauline James on 01493 751070 or email [email protected]

    There is a Tea & Talk drop in session every second Thursday of the month, at Acle Methodist Church, at 2.00pm.

    Other than the above Tea & Talk, owing to the reduced number of volunteers, and the ongoing risk from Covid-19, we regret that it is unlikely that residents can be helped at present.

  • Heating Oil bulk-buying scheme – free membership

    Click here for the link to the website

    Heating oil is an unregulated commodity. Unlike mains gas and electricity, there are no rules and regulations or price controls. Oil has seen dramatic price fluctuations in recent times – and you can’t easily buy it in small helpings just when you need it.

    So how can you shop around for a really good deal on heating oil? The answer is to join a bulk-buying scheme – and there’s one that already operates right across Norfolk.  ThinkingFuel, a partnership between Community Action Norfolk and AF Affinity, Anglia Farmers’ bulk buying group, already has more than 3,000 members.

    The idea is that everyone in the scheme gets a really low price on their oil because it’s negotiated by a single expert supplier, who buys in bulk, and then passes on the savings to the members. Everyone pays the same price regardless of how much they order.

    It works like this. You can join as a community group or an individual. You have to register to be part of the scheme and we are currently offering FREE LIFETIME individual membership (Normally membership costs £20 a year or £60 for lifetime membership). The bulk ordering takes place on two set days each month to maximise savings. That’s when you get the best deal, but you can order oil on any working day of the month and still get a competitive price – but those two important days give the best price.

    Acle Parish Council has paid to join as a community group, but there is currently free membership for individuals, so it’s a good time to sign up:
