Village Groups

Snettisham is fortunate to have an active Village life – there are many groups, both based in the Village and branches of National Organisations. A list of those details we have is at the bottom of this page. I have asked groups to provide updated information as the lockdowns ease – those who have done so are marked “updated” – even if details have not changed – please confirm with other groups.

Council held a meeting encouraging them to come together on October 23rd 2019, and it was agreed to try and present as much information in one place about all of them. Over time we shall be adding the details that we have, and keeping it updated regularly. Please do provide us with this information on this group details form – without it we cannot publish details under Data Protection rules! [Please print off and scan back to us.]

Here are notes of the first Forum meeting. This is not a comprehensive summary.
