1991 Census

1999 Questionnaire

Despite the growth in the number of households 26 of the re- spondents (5.7%) are currently in need of alternative accom- modation, the majority of these are the sons and daughters re- quiring rental accommodation.

Of the 94 children aged between 4 and 11 identified in the Questionnaire 60 were being educated at Ropley school, the balance presumably travelling out of the village to other schools.

Residency in the village is evenly split with approximately one third of respondents having lived in Ropley for less than 5 years, with another third residing be- tween 6 and 15 years and the final third being here more than 16 years to 50 years, with 31 residents having lived here for more than 51 years. There is no real di- vide between the long term residents and “incomers” of Grace Strong’s day any more, as the great majority could be called that by the old standards. It may be true that “incomers” still feel that way, but perhaps that has more to do with expec- tation and the pace of modern life than reality.
