Local Services & Facilities

Snettisham is a Key Rural Service Centre in the Local Plan. We have many services that other rural communities might envy, and a thriving network of organisations and clubs. If you run a group and would like us to include your details, please contact us by email.

To help keep the information on this page up to date, we have generally provided links direct to the providers’ websites, rather than individual documents.

2018 Autumn Half-Term Update
This list gives many activities in the wider area which may entertain the youngsters in the half term break.

Buses:
Snettisham is fortunate to have good bus services. These are provided by Lynx Buses. Please use their site directly to access timetables.

Mobile Library:
There are fortnightly visits, and the times of these can be found here.

Outside Organisations:
This list is a very useful summary of many groups around Norfolk, including children’s services, those for the elderly, and health and other contacts.

Western Shore Team Benefice – St Mary’s, Snettisham:
From January 2018 the Parish Office is helping St Mary’s by acting as a location for contacting the Benefice in Snettisham. Parish (i.e. Church) matters can be brought up with Penny Taylor (Team Administrator) in person at the Office, e.g. Baptism, Wedding and Funeral arrangements. This will be on Mondays from 10-12, and you can contact her here by phone (but, please, only during that time). The Church email is heacham.church@gmail.com, though that will change shortly.

The Common:
The Parish Council owns the Common on behalf of the Village. Common Land is a valuable recreational and environmental resource. We manage it under a Plan devised with Norfolk Wildlife Trust, in order to encourage ecological diversity, and make the most of its geological features. The Plan can be seen here. The County Wildlife Site information is here, but please note the map is of the site, not the Common! The sand pit is a remarkable feature, and geological information is here.
