Staff from the Ripley Co-operative store and funeral home gave up their time to brighten up the grounds of Ripley Junior School and Ripley Cemetery. The clean-up operations were part of an initiative called The Big Co-op Clean, where co-op members demonstrate the power of working together in their community. Ripley store manager Gavin Glidewell said: “It was great to make a positive difference and demonstrate what being a co-operative business is all about.”
