Welcome to Ripple Parish Council

Ripple is the most southerly parish in Worcestershire and consists of the communities of Ryall, Holly Green, The Grove, Naunton, Uckinghall and Ripple.The Parish was formerly much larger and at the date of the Doomsday Survey included Upton upon Severn, all the three Croomes together with Queenhill and Holdfast. It was at that time one of the largest parishes in Worcestershire. Over the years various areas were transferred to neighbouring parishes to reduce it to its present size.
Ripple was known as "rippel" in AD680 which has connections with the Norwegian "ripel", a strip of woodland or coppice.This is also referred to as "rypel" in ancient charters to denote a strip of land bestowed by some benefactor. This definition obviously confirms the shape of the Parish which extends north/south by 4.5miles and east/west by 1.5 miles
In 1643 the Battle of Ripple was fought on Ripple Meadow between the Parliamentarians, under Sir William Waller, who defeated the Royalists commanded by Prince Maurice, as part of the Civil War.

Poppies to Raise Funds for Royal British Legion

Knitted poppies needed for WW1 centenary Knitters across Malvern are being asked to create poppies to mark the centenary of the end of World War One. People can get involved and make knitted or crocheted poppies of any size which will then be sold at Malvern Tourist Information Centre (TIC) to raise funds for the Royal British Legion. Malvern Hills District Council is asking for as many as possible to be handed in to The Council House on Avenue Road by the end of October. This year, Remembrance Sunday (11 November) marks one hundred years since the end of the First World War and is a time for people to come together and reflect on the millions of lives lost between 1914 and 1918. Rachel Vann, Physical Activity and Well-being Officer for Malvern Hills District Council, said: “Knitting and crocheting improves mental well-being because not only is it a great way to de-stress but it is said to help combat depression and distract from chronic pain. “We hope the Malvern community will come together and get creative to help us mark the centenary of the end of World War One.” To get involved, email getactive@malvernhills.gov.uk for more information and to request a poppy design template
