Welcome to The Smalley Community
Making the Most of Smalley
The Smalley community group is made up of village residents whose aim is to facilitate opportunities for the whole village to come together.
The Smalley Community Group is delighted with the progress made over the past two years in pursuing our vision of bringing Smalley people together. Our “Picnics at the Pavilion” and “Spookfests” have been extremely well-received and attended, as have our “Souper Saturdays.” Please contact us for any information, or if you would like to become involved. We use e-mail, this web site and Facebook pages, but are mindful of the fact that not everyone uses the Internet, and other methods of communication are needed as well. With inclusion as our aim we want to insure that no-one in our village is left out. We would like to reach out to all age groups, listen to what people say, and facilitate activities for all as far as we can. Please look at this site, our Facebook page, or contact us on 01332 883224. All comments and suggestions are welcomed.
Why was The Smalley Community Group Formed?
As a response to comments that too little community activity takes place in Smalley, the Parish Council undertook to seek people’s views and nurture any potential developments. The Smalley Parish Council met with village groups and societies to discuss levels of activity and perceived needs. A questionnaire was delivered to every household in Smalley with an invitation to an open meeting in February 2016 where villagers could express views and make suggestions. Over 85 people attended. The mood was very positive. After two further meetings, a committee of approximately 15 people emerged, with around 30 on a contact list willing to distribute flyers, help at events etc. The committee is inclusive and open.
