Welcome to chopwell Village website

This website is run by and for people who live in Chopwell. The idea for the website has come from Chopwell Regeneration Group, a not-for-profit organisation, formed by residents who want to make Chopwell an even better place to live.

It is aimed at people who live here, people that visit and people that have moved away but want to keep in touch.

Throughout the site you will find articles on the history and background of Chopwell, details of businesses and local organisations, regular activities, upcoming events, latest news including the Chopwell Regeneration newsletter and photos of our beautiful village.

Please bear with us and keep coming back and visiting the site as it is updated and developed over the next few months.

Would you like to get involved?

Please keep sharing your ideas about what you would like to see change in Chopwell for the better.

What can we do for kids, teenagers, young people, unemployed people, older people? Can we do anything to make the residential areas better? What about shops and businesses? What about housing, empty buildings? What ideas do people have for derelict areas of land/waste ground? What would you like to see? Would you like more activities- art, fitness, adult education? How do you think the main areas of Chopwell could be brightened up or improved? Should we do more to make sure the past isn’t forgotten?

There are lots of charities and organisations that we can apply to for grants for all sorts of things to try and bring your ideas to life so please do share them.

Please either post here or email your ideas to team@chopwell.org and then we can perhaps talk about them and see if people agree they are good ideas and, if so, whether we might be able to apply for some money to make them happen. No promises but always worth a try and we have a lot of good people in Chopwell who can help give us the best chance of success.

The website has been designed, created and written by residents who are all volunteers. It is very generously being hosted for free by NE Solutions IT company in Chopwell.

If you have any news, events, photographs or ideas you think might be of interest to include please do get in touch by email to website@chopwell.org.

If you are an organisation in Chopwell who would like to be mentioned on the website please email us at website@chopwell.org with a brief description, your contact details and a link to your website or facebook page.
