Hemswell Parish Council - Home page



Welcome to Hemswell Parish Council & Burial Authority, Lincolnshire

Hemswell Parish Council meet on the third Monday of January, March, May, July, September and November. Meetings are held at 7:00 pm in the Hemswell and Harpswell Village Hall. Occasionally, there are additional 'extraordinary' meetings to discuss items of an urgent nature between the scheduled meetings. Our Annual Meeting of the Parish Council is held in May. A separate Annual Meeting of the Parish is held just once a year - you can find all the dates on this website.

Meeting dates and agendas are published on this website and on the village notice boards located at the village hall and in Brook Street. Soon after each meeting, you'll find the draft minutes published on this website and on the village notice boards. Follow the links in the section below for more information.

Residents are welcome to attend full council meetings and can speak briefly on village matters at the beginning of the meeting in public question time. Items not on the agenda for that evening's meeting can't be discussed in detail, but if you want to discuss a particular topic it may be added to the agenda for the following meeting or dealt with in writing. You can contact the clerk by email at hemswellparishcouncil@gmail.com

Countries around the world are facing rising goods and energy prices, inflation and cost of living pressures after the pandemic and the war in Ukraine. We know people are worried, so the UK government is offering help for households. If you claim certain benefits or tax credits, you may be eligible for an extra payment to help with the cost of living.  You can find advice on the UK Government and West Lindsey District Council websites.
