Providing a programme of meetings, including talks on topics of interest as requested by members; arranging local walks, fund raising concerts and other community gatherings.

Liaising with the Ropley Parish Council to represent members views and to pass on to our members information from the Parish Council or other important bodies that are relevant to the village and villagers.
