Village Spring Clean 2019

We will be initiating a village Spring Clean again in spring 2019 starting in February. For this purpose, the village is split into 6 areas which are listed below. Each has a volunteer coordinator. Should you wish to assist in this very worthwhile operation at a time of your selection please contact Keith Monkhouse by email at giving the location you would like to clear and your name will be passed to the appropriate coordinator. The Ropley Society can provide hi vis jackets, bin liners and rubbish pickers on request.
