Hopton in Bloom (HIB)
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.
