GreenSnape community group formed in spring 2017 in response to Snape Maltings’ plans to build a car park on Snape Marshes. Our aim is to protect and enhance the environment and amenities in and around Snape for the benefit of residents, visitors and wildlife. Led by a small Committee, we keep the Community informed of our achievements through our frequent newsletter and also see the menu (left).
We work with our Parish, District and County Councils, Snape School, villagers, other volunteer groups, Suffolk Wildlife Trust, the National Trust, RSPB and other landowners. We have also recently taken over responsibility for the upkeep of Priory Wood. We are committed to opposing any plans or actions that we feel would damage or be detrimental to our local environment. We'd like to involve as many fellow residents as possible in our activities, and would love your ideas about what you would like to see happen in our village. Our Photo Album illustrates some of our activities.
In recognition of our efforts so far, we were recently awarded Suffolk's Greenest Community Award for 2019, as reported below. Read more about the award at http://www.greensuffolk.org/news/greenest-county-winners-announced/.
