Our thanks go to ......... 

Hopton and Coton Parish Council is very grateful to Chris Simmons of ISE Estates for donating £1,000 and County Councillor John Francis who arranged for a Staffordshire County Council grant of £930 to be donated - both sums of money are to be put towards the renovation of the village hall. The Parish Council is very grateful to Parish Councillor Richard Bennett for all his hard work in securing the ISE Estates donation and for being a good ambassador for the council. 

We would love to hear from ........

Hopton Parish Council is keen to hear from people who live or work in Hopton and who have a new initiative that they would like to work on, especially if Hopton residents can take advantage of their work. The Clerk is now fully qualified which will allow the Parish Council to work with local business. Hopton Parish Council will consider any suggestion.
