The Ropley History Network and Archive will be set up in 2019 at the request of a number of interested Ropley residents. It will be set up as a sub group of the Ropley Society.
It’s aim is to create a group for people who have an interest in the history of the village and the local area.
The purpose of the group will be to research and archive information and or material covering the history of Ropley and the local area and to make this accessible via a shared digital platform.
It is anticipated that involvement and contributions will be on an informal and voluntary basis with individuals from the group meeting occasionally to share and discuss areas of interests and projects of their own and perhaps link up with other individuals that may have a shared interest in a subject of study.
Initial thinking is that, as part of the work of the group an online archive and catalogue will be created, (though this will be funding dependent) in order to digitise and store at least some of the existing informal village archive.
