Friends of Ropner Park are sorry to inform you that we are having to curtail our activities because of the coronavirus outbreak.

The Palm Sunday Stalls, Spring and Food fair, and the EID Fusion Festival have all been cancelled.

The first band concert has been cancelled and the remaining programme looks extremely doubtful because bands are not allowed to rehearse.

The cafe has now closed for the foreseeable future.

Ropner Park Looks Great. After closing the park earlier in the week, the council has reopened it for pedestrians only. Please follow the guidelines and enjoy the open space and floral displays.

The rearranged Christmas fair took place in the Yarm road Methodist church hall on Saturday 14th December. Thank you to the volunteers and to the church members who made it possible. Although the turnout wasn`t as good as we would have liked, almost £400 was added to the funds.

Our male swan has been on his own for some months now but an early Christmas present seems to have flown in. Thank you Santa.
