Rampton '77 Committee

Founded in 1977, all our events aim to foster social cohesion and to promote and maintain the community spirit in our village. Funds raised then provide support for projects and good causes for all ages in our village and the wider community.

Tea on the Green

This beloved village event will take place this year on Sunday, 9 June from 3.00 p.m.  Enjoy a relaxed afternoon of traditional tea and scones (or prosecco!) with friends and neighbours on the Green. There will be an optional quiz and an activity sheet for children.

A Rampton '77 Committee and Rampton Fairies joint event

Over 100 intrepid explorers set out on safari following our fun village trail, searching for our wonderful jungle animals, solving the clues and winning lots of lovely chocolate prizes.  Arriving in jungle fancy dress won an extra prize!  Our FREE jungle crafts for children were also very popular and both the Darts and Bowl for a Pig had queues!  Lots of fun games and stalls. Thank you so much for all those who donated cakes/bottles/prizes but espcially to those who donated their time and made those such a wonderful event.

There was FREE entry to delicious refreshments, cakes, bottle and toy stalls, games, jungle photo studio, and our Grand Spring Raffle with fabulous prizes.

Jumble Sale

The ultimate recycling opportunity whilst also finding wonderful bargains! Over 200 people joined us on Saturday 9th March in Rampton Village Hall. Queues formed early outside! Teas/coffees with home made cakes were available all morning and gave everyone an excuse to sit and chat wit hfriends and neighbours.

We welcomed almost eighty guests to the annual Over 60s Dinner. Everyone was treated to a delicious three course meal cooked by the fabulous kitchen team. Conversation flowed and much laughter was to be heard.  Rampton's very own Revue and Pantomime (Snow White) followed with stellar performances by the entire cast and crew.

Rampton CarCare

On 1st October 2023 we started a pilot project to financially support frequent CarCare users. This has proved very useful so we are delighted that from 1st January 2024 we will be fully funding the contribution normally paid by CarCare users.

The '77 Committee held its 2023 Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 17th October.  Any villager wishing to raise an item for discussion was asked to contact the Secretary at least 21 days prior to the meeting.

Rampton Relay

What with one thing and another we had not been able to hold this popular event for a few years but 2023 saw 29 entrants running the “Rampton Mile”  through Rampton’s beautiful Parkland and woods. Despite an incredibly hot afternoon good times were posted and medals awarded for the fastest team and individuals.

Rampton's Summer Fayre

The Summer Fayre on Saturday 8th July was held at the Village Hall due to risk of thunderstorms.  In the end it was a scorchingly hot afternoon with about 7 drops of rain! Rampton turned out in force and a great time was had by all! Despite the weather risk Ramptonians by the dozen enjoyed stalls, raffle, refreshments, games, children's races, and Pirate Jon's Treasure Hunt!  Votes were also cast for our next local Good Cause. Thank you so much to everyone who came and especially to the small army of helpers who gave up all or part of their weekend - we literally couldn't do it without you!

What else could it be but a Dragon Quest on St George's Day?   Over one hundred questers followed our fun village trail, searched for over seventy dragons, solved the clues and won lots of lovely chocolate prizes.  Those who arrived in fancy dress were fabulous and many had fun making balloon swords and paper plate shields. If the fun wasn't enough we also raised over £1,000 towards our good causes.
