In addition, we boast a wonderful selection of local groups and classes that make our community a very special place.
We invite you to shop, eat, drink and stay in our High Street, as well as walk around the largest Green in the country. Did you know we have one of the oldest Cricket Clubs in the world (with games played dating to the 1700s) and Ripley is the ‘Mecca of all good cyclists’ as mentioned by Lord Bury in 1887.
Encouraging all our independently owned and operated businesses to work together as one. To promote our unique village, attracting higher footfall through our members’ doors and websites and, ultimately, creating jobs for local people.
The Community Interest Company (CIC) and our Discover Ripley website was created during the national lockdown. As a group, we wanted to encourage networking and collaboration and a better community spirit within our business owners. To date. we have brought business owners closer together and raised over £5,000 to save the Village Christmas Lights.
