Operation Good Neighbour Hoveton and Wroxham, the local Coronavirus community assistance scheme, is now up and running. The scheme will coordinate volunteers and arrange for the delivery of food and medicine to local residents who have no other means of support such as non-isolating family or friends or other support groups. The scheme can be contacted via its website or Facebook page.
Operation Good Neighbour has been set up and will be run by the Wroxham and Hoveton Good Neighbours Scheme (part of Community Action Norfolk). The scheme is supported by the local Church, local Councillors for Wroxham and Hoveton, and the Parish Councils of Hoveton and Wroxham.

Hoveton and Wroxham have been selected as a Cycle Hub by Cycling UK, the Broads Authority, and Norfolk County Council, as part of their EXPERIENCE project. This project hopes to offer added value for businesses and to ensure a high-quality experience for cycling visitors/customers. The hub programme is currently in the development stage but it is planned to work with businesses from autumn 2020 onwards. Hoveton Parish Council will provide more news about this exciting new project as it progresses. In the meantime, please read the Hoveton and Wroxham Cycle Hub information sheet to find out more.
Norfolk Police have asked us to get this message out to parishioners, particularly those who are elderly or vulnerable:
Within the last 24 hours a number of households in our local area have again been contacted by someone purporting to be a Detective from Paddington Police Station saying that their bank account had been compromised. The caller sounds very genuine and has managed to trick several people into giving away their personal and bank details. In previous incidents victims have either been encouraged to withdraw large sums of money from their bank account which is later collected from their home address or to hand over their bank card to somebody who calls at their address after giving away their PIN.
Despite regular warnings like this one, unfortunately victims continue to literally lose thousands of pounds. Please help get this message out to those people in the community who may not have access to IT/social media.
