A Good Neighbour scheme could be set up in a north Norfolk town.
Community Action Norfolk (CAN), with the support of Stalham Parish Council, is holding an information event on Tuesday, November 26, to explain how the scheme works.
It will be held at Stalham Academy on Old Yarmouth Road, between 2pm and 4pm, with a short presentation at 2.30pm.
Good Neighbour Schemes are created to combat loneliness and isolation in communities, and to allow people to be less reliant on statutory services.
There are over 10 active schemes running in Norfolk, with two in development in Cromer and along the Poppyland belt.

The schemes are community-led projects delivered by a group of volunteers, and help people with tasks such as providing lifts to GP or hospital appointments, shopping, offering support with filling out forms, gardening or popping over to see someone to have a chat and a cuppa.
