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.
On 20 November 2017 Her Majesty the Queen and HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary (Platinum).
We thought it would be wonderful to find couples in Wealden who have also celebrated/will also be celebrating 70 years of wedded bliss this year.
We feel that such an achievement is worthy of local recognition with a visit from Wealden’s Chairman who would like to present a card and gift to the couple to add to the celebration.
Please share this with your Councillors, friends, family and colleagues and contact me with details of the couple who would like for their 70 years together to be celebrated with Wealden.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Many thanks and kind regards,
Wealden District Council

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 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.
