Acle is a small market town on the River Bure and is known as the Gateway to the Norfolk Broads National Park, located halfway between Norwich and Great Yarmouth. Acle, meaning ‘In the Lea of the Oaks’ is mentioned in the Domesday Book.
A collaborative effort
Acle Parish Council are working with ‘Surfers Against Sewage’ to make Acle a ‘Plastic Free Community’. Many of the residents and visitors are already passionate about the environment, making a Refill Scheme go hand in hand with the Acle community.
If you’re looking to start a Refill Scheme, we’ve got a guide to help you get started.
A Plastic Free Community
Supported by the Parish Council, Refill Acle hopes as many businesses as possible will sign up to reduce plastic pollution in the town.
Refill Acle is run by Anna Wade as part of ‘All About Acle’ – a community group with the backing of the town council.
Getting involved is easy!
If you’ve got a great idea about getting involved in your local scheme, or you want to set up your own Refill Scheme, we’d love to have you on board.
