Welcome to the Heywood Parish Council Website


On our website we outline the role and services provided by the Parish Council along with details of our councillors. We provide you with the dates of our meetings and copies of the agendas and minutes.  

It is our intention to encourage more residents to play an active role in the community, to participate in more activities,

and to attend Parish Council Meetings.


A new noticeboard has been installed at The Ham Post Office & Stores on the corner of Storridge Road and The Ham, to replace the old wooden one which was sadly beyond repair.

This was purchased with the aid of a grant from Westbury Area Board.

If you have items which you would like to be published on the Parish's noticeboards, please contact the Parish Clerk using the contact form on the "Contacts" tab.  If there is space, every effort will be made to include it.

Picture to follow.
