Welcome to Hockley Parish Council's website. If you look to the tabs on the left, you will find information about what the council is and does; I hope you will find it interesting. If you would like to know more, meetings take place at the Old Fire Station, normally on a Monday evening. You are welcome to attend, as there is a 15 minute public question time at the start of the meeting, but if you have a specific question, it can sometimes be easier to let us know in advance.
Next meeting: Resources and Procedures Committee Tuesday 26th May.
Clerk to the Council
Hockley’s first Art Trail in July 2014 proved to be a great success for artists, traders and residents. Following positive feedback, Hockley Parish Council has organised its second Art Trail to be held over 3 days between 2nd and 4th July 2015, which will be spread over approximately 30 venues in Hockley town centre, and where all venues can be reached on foot from the centre.
The Trail will showcase a variety of artwork by local artists and art groups, and is likely to include exhibits of paintings, drawings, photography, ceramics, woodcarving, woodturning, pyrography and glasswork.
Entry to the event will be free for the viewing public.
An event programme and trail map, providing details of artists, art forms and venues, will be available from participating exhibitors, local shops, Hockley Library and Hockley Parish Council office.
Further details of the Art Trail can be obtained from Councillors Tim Gleadall (01702 201688), Veronica Randall (01702 202142) or Sue Martin (01702 202750).
