Award for the Council

Harling Parish Council has received a prestigious award as part of the Local Council Award Scheme.

 This achievement recognises that the council achieves good practice in governance, community engagement and council improvement. Moreover, Harling Parish Council goes above and beyond their legal obligations, leading their communities and continuously seeking opportunities to improve and develop even further.

The Local Council Award Scheme is a peer assessed programme that has been designed to both provide the tools and encouragement to those councils at the beginning of their improvement journeys, as well as promoting and recognising councils that are at the cutting edge of the sector. It is through the sector working together to share best practice, drive up standards and supporting those who are committed to improving their offer to their communities that individual councils and the sector as a whole will reach its full potential.

In terms of the future, the council is now reviewing ways in which it can keep on improving its offer to the local community and welcomes input from local people and partners on this. Harling Parish Council, and other local councils like it, are at the front line of the government’s localism agenda and are doing as much as they can to delivery services whilst being efficient and cost-effective. Currently the council provides a range of services from allotments, traffic management, street lighting and play areas,  and wants to improve its community engagement through this.



The Parish Council support line is still busy taking calls daily from residents needing shopping and medicines collecting ,and even dog walking ! and it will continue for as long as is needed.
If you need help, or know someone in the village who needs support ,you can call us on 0793 305 761, 7 days a week.
All other Council business can be called through on the usual number 714656 or email us at [email protected]
Thank you to all the volunteers around the village who have given up their own time over the last 11 weeks to help others, your kindness is unmeasurable 🙏🏻

We have been informed of the sad passing of two local gentlemen who were both well known in the village and will be sadly missed by many, Philip Hunt and Ron Atkinson.

Due to the many restrictions on funerals at this time there will only be a few close family members allowed at their funerals sadly, so we have been contacted by the Rev’d Caryll Brown who asks if any residents who knew either of these gentlemen, to kindly line the streets to pay their respects as the funeral cortege passes by, this will give a lot of comfort to their families.

Philip will be buried this Tuesday at Garboldisham Road cemetery at 2pm, the cortege will be leaving from his home in Park Court and travelling through the centre of the village to the cemetery

Ron is to be buried on Friday 22nd May at 11am at the Church Yard, he will take his last journey through the village between 10.30-10.45am starting at the Church, Market St, Kings Street, Gallants Lane and along White Hart Street and back to the Church.

Numbers are restricted at both services, so we kindly ask that you do not attend unless the family have requested.

Thank you.
