Your Local Scheme
I was coordinator in Swainsthorpe and when I moved to Wymondham decided it may benefit our area too. The scheme started with residents of Hazel Close meeting and inviting Derek Clarke to come and explain the scheme. Some residents are overlooked by other houses, so they too were invited to join. Eventually I canvassed the whole of Bramble Way and Hazel Close and most residents joined, including 2 from Blackthorn Road. When Derek Clarke was made redundant and individuals were asked to register, I asked members if they wished to continue with things as they were. Approx 30 continued with the scheme and it has worked well for members. I would like the ones who didn't continue to think again and rejoin the scheme. Also the new residents who have moved in since the scheme started.
