Roys finally move to Wroxham as petrol station is taken over

Roys of Wroxham will finally be trading in Wroxham after taking over a petrol station and shop on the Norwich Road.

Don and Anne Webster are retiring after 40 years at Broadland Motor Company and have sold to Roys, famous for their department store, which is technically in Hoveton.

Mr Webster said: 'We are delighted that Roys will be running the garage and shop as both are vitally important locally, and for my wife and I, running the garage and filling station has been a wonderful experience and we wish to thank all our customers wholeheartedly for their business over the years.'

New signage is yet to be added to the petrol station but Roys have made it a third larger with a complete refit, to introduce groceries, chilled food and fresh bread.

Roys managing director, Ed Roy, added: 'After 115 years of trading in Hoveton, on the other side of the river, we're delighted to finally be trading in Wroxham!'
