New Litter Bins for the Parish

Over 18 months ago Snaith and Cowick Town Council made the decision to install a number of new litter bins around the parish.
Unfortunately due to the pandemic, services at the East Riding of Yorkshire Council were put on hold.
Today we are very pleased to inform residents the bins have been installed at the following locations:
▪️Junction of Bourn Mill Balk Road and Pontefract Road
▪️Pontefract Road near to the secondary school
▪️Additional bin at joint use play area
▪️Market Place
An additional replacement bin has also been installed (at no cost to us) on High Street, East Cowick. The Town Council will turn the old concrete bin into a planter.
We do hope residents will use the additional assets to the community and try to keep Snaith, East and West Cowick a beautiful place to live and visit.

Emergency Plan – Information Required

Emergency Plan – Register of Vulnerable People

The Town Council has held and maintained for many years now an Emergency Plan which contains important information about the parish in the event of an emergency.
Last year, this document proved invaluable when supporting the emergency services in locating vulnerable residents when the floods devastated our community.
If you would like to be added to the vulnerable list or have a friend or relative who many need assistance if the Emergency Plan was to be activated, please contact the Assistant Town Clerk on or call 01405 862663.
Please note that any personal information provided is held in a secure cabinet and remains strictly confidential.

Freedom of Snaith 2021

Freedom of Snaith 2021

The Freedom of Snaith is a honour which is bestowed to the RAF 51 Squadron for their affiliation to the area during WWII.
A celebratory parade is usually held every three years but this will not be able to take place this year due to the on-going pandemic.
It has been agreed to delay the full parade and celebration until 2022, which will also be the 10 year anniversary of the Freedom of Snaith, but a small online event will take place on Monday 22 March at 6:30pm. All residents are welcome to join this event. Log-on details are on the attached flyer.
