Snarestone Village



Village Website - Vacancy

It has been 10 years now since I set up this village website on behalf of the good people of Snarestone. Whilst one of the most appealing aspects of living in Snarestone is the fact that not much happens on a daily basis, there are still things going on with the Pantomime, the Tote Committee, village trips, duck races, Christmas parties, litter picks, parties in the park, fundraising events, school events, neighbourhood watch and of course, an active Church programme. All of these things benefit by being represented on this website, and it is with a heavy heart that I have to admit that I just don't have the time to give the site the attention it deserves anymore, and feel that it would benefit from a new lease of life under the guidance of a new owner.

The site has been mainly subsidised by our Parish Council, so it is not a financial drain to take on. What I believe it now needs is a new, more up to date method of publishing as the one used at present is getting dated, so if you have any experience of any publishing tools that would be a bonus. Obviously, there is a lot of content already accumulated over the years on this site, and I will be more than happy to pass on photographs etc so that some continuity onto a new site can be maintained, if preferred.

Its also worth remembering that it is the mix of people that makes our village so special, so it is important to try and adopt a 'neutral' style of journalism if at all possible! I have tried to avoid making this "My view of Snarestone" as it is still used as a reference by people coming to the village and it is also the first site in the Google list when searching for Snarestone.

If you think this is something that you would be able to take on, then please contact me at


Thank You
