Welcome to the Cople Village Website, a small village about 3 miles east of the county town of Bedford (Bedfordshire, UK)

Covid-19, the Cople News Magazine and Events

The Cople News Monthly Magazine

The April edition has been printed but due to the Covid-19 restrictions most of those involved in the production and distribution are in self-isolation. But the wonderful GNiC team have kindly volunteered to distribute it.

You can still read it online from the Cople News page – click here – or click the spinning box below where you will also find the APRIL EXTRA edition that Ged (our COPLE NEWS editor) produced after the main April edition went to print.

Can I take this opportunity to remind readers that Ged will be retiring from the role of Editor of the Cople News no later than the end of 2020. If anyone would like to take over the amazing work Ged has done for the village, and become our new News Editor, he would be pleased to hear from them. Please email Ged ASAP at otherwise the News may be no more.

I will try to publish important information on this website but this is not really as immediate as a Facebook based Cople Community page would be. Is there a competent Facebook user (I’m not) who might like to run a Cople Village Community Facebook Page? I will be happy to promote it from this website.
