Parish Council

Parish Pump

Parish Council meetings are open public meetings and are held on the First Wednesday of every month. The meetings take place in the Forbes lounge at the Parish Hall and usually commence at 7.30 pm.  The accessibility of the Parish Hall is given on their page here

Everyone is welcome to observe the meetings and to contribute during public participation.

If there is an issue in the Parish that you are concerned about, or an idea you would like to share with us then please let us know. Either attend one of the meetings, phone or email a Councillor or the Clerk

The Parish Council is the voice of the parish to local and ultimately central government, if we don't know what you want then we can not speak for you.

The Agenda for any forthcoming meeting is put on the official noticeboards next to the Spar and in the village Car Park before each Meeting and details are given below.

The Minutes & Agendas of meetings are held here

CEMETERY REOPENS
New Legislation Allows Cemeteries to Reopen

Following new guidance, issued by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management, I am delighted to inform you we will be reopening our cemetery to the public from today.

Last week emergency legislation was brought in by Central Government instructing all burial grounds and crematoriums to be closed, as part of a host of new measures brought in relating to the Coronavirus pandemic.

In line with this legislation Councils closed cemeteries to the public, except for burials.

However, after seeking clarification about the legislation new guidance has been released and Hemyock Parish Council is pleased it can now safely reopen the cemetery, in line with the updated rules.

Anyone visiting must abide by social distancing rules and no one should be attending the cemeteries if they are showing any symptoms of illness.

CEMETERY CLOSED

It is with deep regret that we must comply with emergency legislation and close our cemetery to members of the public, unless a funeral is taking place.

We understand this will be a very distressing time for a lot of people who have lost loved ones, but we must comply to ensure the safety of everyone.

This is with immediate effect.
