Gnosall Parish Council
Our Mission is to improve the quality of life for those who live and work in the Parish of Gnosall and those who visit it.
The Parish Council was delighted to see so many parishioners at this year’s Annual Assembly at which interesting and informative presentations were delivered by community groups including the Parish Council itself, GG’s Youth Club, The Heritage Group, GLEAN (library working group) and Best Kept Village. Our parish is fortunate to have so many dedicated volunteers, many of whom are part of more than one community group, working hard to keep our parish such a vibrant and pleasant place to live. What was clear from all of the groups represented was there is a need for more volunteers to help the groups maintain the valuable services. The population of Gnosall has grown in recent years with the development of new houses and the Parish Council would love hear from any of our newer residents who may be able to help some of the many groups in a volunteer capacity. Whatever spare time you may have, it would be appreciated.
To celebrate and acknowledge the dedication of a lot of the parish volunteers and community groups, nominations for awards were received from many members of our community. All nominees were deemed to be worthy winners and it was difficult for a team of parish councillors to choose the overall winners. However, this year’s winner of the Individual Award was Ann Andrews and the Community Award was awarded to AFC Gnosall. Ann was recognised for her commitment to teaching as both a teacher and teaching assistant at our local primary school, for being a swimming teacher for many years, for her work and commitment with the First Responders and for being a caring neighbour and friend to so many. AFC were recognised as a community group established only a few years ago that now has 5 or 6 teams competing weekly, is a fun and friendly club where each child, regardless of their ability, is given a chance. The group has made a hugely positive impact on the lives of so many children with a group of dedicated coaches.
