Welcome to the Hemblington Parish Council website.
Hemblington is a small parish close to Norwich in the district of Broadland and the county of Norfolk. It consists of the villages of Pedham, Hemblington and part of Cuttons Corner.
The parish council represents the local residents in matters including planning, provision of recreational facilities, crime prevention, footpaths, certain aspects of road maintenance, litter and open spaces.
Hemblington Parish welcomes the participation of local residents in the work of the council by raising questions with or passing on your views to your councillors through to full involvement by standing as a councillor.
This website provides information on the work of the council such as dates and minutes of council meetings, the names of councillors and the contact details of the officers of the council.
All are warmly invited to come to All Saints Church, Hemblington, to view an exhibition looking back not just to the past 50 years, but at the long history of the area. Evidence of flint knapping goes back to the Middle Stone Age, the Romans and Saxons left pottery sherds, and the village is listed in the Domesday Book.
The exhibition is being held in a Medieval building with a unique wall painting of St Christopher and reminders of what pre-Reformation churches contained. There will be original Parish Records, kindly lent by Norfolk Record Office, together with maps, and more recent photographs and memories generously supplied by local people.
You are also invited to attend the formal opening of the exhibition on Saturday, 20th July at 5 pm and the Act of Thanksgiving Service on Sunday morning, 21st July at 9.30 am.
The exhibition will then be freely available to view each day until Sunday, 28th July – daily between 9.30 am – 5 pm (Sundays from 11.00 am).
The next meeting of the Parish will be held at Heathlands on Monday 17th June at 7.30 pm. Parishioners are invited to attend meetings and speak on any parish matter.

Any person interested has the right to inspect and make copies of the accounts and their supporting documents.
