Hopton in Bloom (HIB)
HIB Certificate of Recognition 2020.PNG

In 2002 , several members of the Community Association voiced an intention to try and improve the environment of Upper Hopton. The fundamentals of our village unique old buildings, a wide range of dwellings, the church, an attractive community centre, the Club, the recreation ground and the cricket field, open green and wooded banks were all waiting to be made more special with a little thought and attention.

Upper Hopton Garden Trail 

Thank you to everyone that came along to visit the gardens in Upper Hopton July in 2023.
The Garden Trail is our main way of raising funds to enable the Hopton in Bloom team to carry out their work around the village.

In 2024 we will be taking a break from the Garden Trail to concentrate on our work around the villkage.
