All parish residents are welcome and encouraged to attend and contribute.

Our purpose in being, is to be your representative body in matters that impact you, the village and the parish. We want to promote positive activities and projects that benefit the village or parish in general. Should you have an idea or suggestion for a project and require support (time, talent or financial) contact one of the council members or come along to one of our meetings. We we will review any suggestions and determine if we should, and can, help. Whilst we are a small Parish/Village with very definite finite resource,s our goals are only limited by the amount of commitment and determination we can marshal as a community.

Let us work together for the benefit of Snarestone and all who live here.

Community First Responders




Snarestone Parish wish to extend their thanks to the local CFR group for their service in our area over the last year. The Parish Council have approved a donation of £200 to the group, who as all CFR groups, are totally self-funded volunteers. Attached ( in documents) is their report for the year 2020. You will see from the report that they cover a wide geographic area. Luckily Snarestone had only two call outs last year but again the CFR responders were there to render qualified first aid before the Ambulance service arrived.

As you travel around our village we hope you will notice the preparations for this year's summer flower display are well under way. One or two of the planters are still displaying good colour from the winter planting and seem to want a little longer before the new plants are put in. Thanks to the stalwarts who have again volunteered to plant the beds this year we hope we will have a splendid summer showing.
