The Cropwell Bishop Plan — a Plan for the Future of our Village

The Cropwell Bishop Plan was launched 7 years ago.

CB Plan Committee On Thursday 22nd January 2009 the Cropwell Bishop Village Plan was launched and the Old School was officially opened. Over 150 people packed the building to hear the Mayor of Rushcliffe, Councillor Barrie Cooper speak and then cut the specially made celebration cake

Villagers who were there drank wine, nibbled superb Blue Stilton cheese (kindly donated by our Creamery) and collected their copy of the Village Plan. Those who were not there, had a copy delivered to their door a few days later, so everyone in the Village had their own copy of The Plan.

If you have arrived in the Village since then and would like your own printed copy, you can obtain one from Janice Towndrow (Parish Clerk) or Tony Jarrow (Chairman of the Parish Plan Committee). You can also download a copy right now: just click: Village Plan.

Seven years since its publication, it makes fascinating reading. In the hope of making our Village an even better place to live, a long list of goals were set down in print.

The glossy booklet included a large number of photos taken around Cropwell Bishop at that time, and they are a reminder of how we lived then. Why not have a look at the Plan now and see how far we have come since then?
