Please note – Wet weather option applies – venue = Parish hall


Our Village Tea Parties are a brilliant way of getting together and offer a wonderful opportunity to meet up with people of all ages and enjoy their company. Whether you have lived here for years or just moved in, this is for you! Why not bring a friend or neighbour along, there are always delicious cakes and scones and plenty of opportunity to chat!

We are introducing a few new aspects which we hope you will enjoy, there will be a special table for members of the Ropley Womens Fellowship, which has sadly closed, giving them a chance to meet up on a regular basis and we will also be having a craft table for the children to enjoy. In addition there will be a book and magazine swap table.

We do hope that you will come and join us on:
ROPLEY PARISH HALL   2.30 pm until 4 pm
There is no charge, just a donation bowl to help cover expenses.
PLEASE COME!       Norma Day

Post Early for Christmas – ONLY 15 more required !!

Following my request for support for a 2019 Ropley Christmas card collection and delivery service, I have now received 20 offers of support. It is encouraging that most of those who have contacted me to date have not been involved in previous years.

Only a handful of those who have been helping in previous years have contacted me.

However, I am still looking for another 15 or so volunteers if the Christmas card service is to take place this year.

So, if you have helped in the past and want to be involved this year, please contact me as I will not contact you, as I have done in previous years, OR if you haven’t been involved in the past, contact me and I will add you to my current list.

I look forward to hearing from you
