  • Hellingly Parish Council

    The Parish Council provides a Village Hall, Cemetery, Recreation Grounds and Allotments. It is also consulted on Planning matters where it gives the local view. The Parish Council meets at 7.30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month, save August, when there is usually no Parish Council Meeting. Committee meetings generally commence at 7.00 p.m. See Committees page for a full list of forthcoming meetings.

    The Council manages the Country Park which includes lakes, a cricket pitch and pavilion.  In the future there will also be allotments and a new Community Hall.

    The Council has been awarded Quality Council status.

    The Council provides the Chairman and strong support for the Cuckmere Flood Forum. It administers the Millennium Arboretum on the Cuckoo Trail, and liaises with the Hellingly Community Park Trust which has assisted in the establishment of Hellingly Country Park on the site of the former Hellingly hospital.

  • PARK WOOD

    Amazing News! Park Wood has been awarded the status of Asset of Community Value. This is wonderful news as it gives us a few more months to see what can be done. But we really need to have as many people as possible at the next meeting on Wednesday 23rd, 7.30 at The Charles Hunt Centre, Hailsham. 

     Keep up to date via our Facebook page “Friends of Park Wood Hellingly” You can also contact me by email at parkwood17@yahoo.com or on 07800907093

    Horsebridge Post Office®

    Lower Horsebridge, Hailsham, BN27 4DH
    Branch Temporary Closure
    I am writing to inform you that, regrettably, following the resignation of the Postmaster and the withdrawal of the premises for Post Office use the above branch will be closing temporarily on Saturday 16 September 2017 at 17:30.
    Looking after a nationwide network of Post Office services, we have a responsibility to make sure every service makes the best possible use of resources, while ensuring that customers can still access our products and services. I can assure you that we will continue to work to find a solution that will provide a Post Office service to the Horsebridge community.
    If you have any questions you would like to raise about this matter, please write to me via the Communication and Consultation Team at the address shown below. Please note that your comments will not be kept confidential unless you expressly ask us do so by clearly marking them “In Confidence”.
    Any future changes to service provision would be handled in line with our Code of Practice which sets out how we communicate and explain changes to the Post Office network. You can find more information about the Code at the end of this letter. Other people in your organisation may have an interest in this issue so please let them know about it.
    I would like to apologise for the inconvenience the temporary closure may cause. We hope that our customers will continue to use the Post Office and full details of alternative Post Office services in the area are shown at the end of this letter.
    I will write to you again once I have any news about our plans for future service provision.

    Yours faithfully

    Cheryl Sitch, Network Operations Manager
