Upper Hopton

Community Association

Upper Hopton Community Association (UHCA), Registered Charity No 512417, was formed in 1980 and has over the years raised money to extend and modernise the Croft House Rooms as we see them today.
Croft House itself dates from around 1700.  It was bequeathed, with the adjoining cottage, to the people of the village by Mr Charles Earnest Sutcliffe in 1948.
The Upper Hopton Community Association meets on the first Tuesday of each month except August at 7.30 pm in Croft House and all residents of the village are welcome.

The Upper Hopton Fete

Sorry, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have decided to  cancel  the 2021 Fete.

The decision was made, to protect all our wonderful volunteers and our visitors.

We will be back in July 2022 with a great event for everyone.
