The Parish Council represent the interests of the community. The Chairman, councillors and clerk are individual members of the council 'team' working together responding to the needs and views of the community.
Current Councillors: Malcolm Flounders (Chairman), Glori Elsden, Gerald Lewis, Robert Pilch, Steven Scott, Steve Phillips & David Goodwin.
Parish Clerk: David Young
The accounts of the council are audited annually, with the audit for the preceding year normally being held in the summer.
The parish council meets in the village hall at 7.30pm on the second Wednesday of March, May, September and November and brief reports appear regularly in Village Voice, the magazine serving the parishes of Hoxne, Wingfield, Denham and Syleham.
The Parish Council has a duty to publish draft minutes of meetings within one month of the meeting. These draft minutes can be found on this page. However, the minutes are only a draft document and do not become an official record of the Parish Council Meeting until they are approved at the next Parish Council Meeting.
The clerk, from whom further information can be obtained, is Mr David Young. Email from this link.
Mid Suffolk District Council core strategy for local development has now been confirmed and Syleham is designated 'Countryside', which means that housing development would be permitted only in strictly limited categories.
The Parish Council takes a strong interest in elderly and vulnerable residents and has an active link with Age Concern in Mrs Elsden.
The Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator (Mr G Lewis) can be contacted via the parish clerk, as above, who will also be able to tell you the contact for your particular area.
Until advised there will be no public Parish Council meetings. Please use the website for notifying matters of concern.
A number of Hoxne residents are forming a group with the aim of supporting any Hoxne resident who may be self isolating. The objective is to collect and drop off at the doorstep, medication and essential supplies. If you feel you need help please contact:
Margaret Sillis tel: 01379 668395
email: firstname.lastname@example.org or
Gill O’Connor tel: 01379 668241
Alternatively, if you are able to volunteer we would also love to hear from you.
This will be a ‘Drop Off on the Doorstep Service. None of our volunteers will ask for access to your house. If in doubt, ask for ID or dial 999.
