By virtue of various pieces of legislation, the Parish Council is permitted to give grants to groups and organisations who provide a service or benefit to the community.
You will have read the excellent article in the August edition of the Village Voices by the HMP and YOI Hollesley Bay prison Governor, Mr Garry Newnes. This article was prompted by the latest meeting between Garry and representatives of both Hollesley and Boyton Parish Councils.
Do you know a young person who needs a grant for education purposes? The Mary Warner Educational Foundation provides grants to people under the age of 25, in need of financial assistance for education purposes and who live in Hollesley and the surrounding villages.
Past grants have included funds for young people finding it difficult to get to college or higher education, outfits, clothing, tools, instruments and books.

Hollesley Parish Council will not be involved in the allocation procedure for the housing on offer in Mallard Way. All legal agreements and conditions placed on planning applications are managed by the Local Planning Authority, in this case East Suffolk Council (ESC).
As per Government advice, Hollesley Parish Council will be re-opening the Play Equipment on both the Recreation Grounds as from Saturday 4th July.
Like most villages, this equipment is open for children to use at any time and it is not attended or monitored on an on-going basis. Therefore posters will be displayed to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 and to keep everyone safe.
The company building the new play equipment (NGF Play) came to assess the site on 1st June and the position of the 5 new pieces of equipment was discussed. The exact position of the equipment is still being discussed, with thoughts of the local residents and the future development of the equipment being taken in to consideration.
After a change of legislation, Town and Parish Councils are now permitted to hold meetings remotely, via systems such as Zoom, Skype and MS Teams (others are available!). HPC will hold their first meeting via Zoom on 21st May and it is likely that monthly meetings will continue in this way for a while, at least while the Covid-19 restrictions on gatherings are in place.
Hollesley residents are getting ready to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of VE Day on 8th May 2020. Check out all the lovely pictures on our Gallery.
The HPC Accounts for 2019/20 are now prepared and have been audited by Mr Trevor Brown CPFA. The Accounts, Audit Reports and PKF Documentation (these are for an External Audit to take place) are all on the PC’s website and can be found here
