Lopen's Community Groups
Lopen has an active and caring community. Please click on the page links in the navigation panel, left, for information on the following groups:

Village events including our regular Coffee Mornings
Lopen Shoe Box Appeal
Just a reminder that once again we will be collecting Shoe Boxes this Christmas. An explanation for new villagers who perhaps are not familiar with this charity - a shoe box, or box of similar size, is filled with small gifts for children and wrapped. The charity collects the boxes and they are shipped to end up in the hands of underprivileged children somewhere in the world. If you would care to help, please contact Sally-Ann at Crown Cottage in Church Street or call 241765
Lord's Larder Charity
All Saints Church church has decided to join other churches in the area in providing emergency food for families who have fallen on hard times due to redundancy, loss of benefits, a marriage breakup or sheer bad luck. To support Lord’s Larder, simply place a box in the Church and Schoolroom , a tin, jar or packet of food to be taken regularly to the scheme’s base in Chard. This is an ongoing venture for the foreseeable future.
For more information on the above, please contact Sally-Ann 241765.
