Ropley Society Update

Village Spring Clean Thank You

Much of the village clean up was completed this year before the Covid 19 restrictions were put in place with about 30-40 villagers participating over 6 neighbourhoods each with a coordinator. We thank them all for their collecting efforts. There was a wide variety in the amount of rubbish found from 21 full bin liner sacks in the A31 area to one sack in the cleanest area. The centre of the village seems to be getting cleaner though there still plenty of beer cans discarded particularly around the tourist area near the railway.

Society’s Annual Photographic Competition reminder

Calling all amateur local photographers, despite the Covid 19 lockdown as you are out in the fresh air for you daily exercise there are some beautiful scenes of Spring all about us. We still hope to produce a calendar for next year so please remember to take your camera with you when you are out and about and think about the pictures you would like to submit for the 2021 village calendar.

Photographs can be from anywhere within the BisMonRopTis area and the competition is open to anyone who normally receives BisMonRopTis.
