Welcome to Hillam Parish Council Website
I hope you find this website useful and interesting. We have put other web links on the site to make it easier for residents to contact us and other organisations involved in making living in Hillam a better experience.
We have a small but special village. We have the Christmas Ring Tree Lights; Hillam News; a vibrant and welcoming pub in the Cross Keys; a Bus Service to access services and shops and lots of active social groups here and in Monk Fryston, these all make it a popular place to live.
The Parish Council role is to make sure that we maintain and improve the village and we welcome residents' involvement in that. Our meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the Month, at Monk Fryston Community Centre starting at 7.30pm. The agenda for each meeting will be on the Notice Board in the Village Square or click here so you can see what business is to be discussed. Residents are always welcome.
Chair Hillam Parish Council
In the light of government advice regarding the current situation, there will be no public meeting of the Parish Council held until further notice. As advised by the National Association of Local Councils, an Extra ordinary meeting of the Parish Council was held to consider and approve "temporary delegation of powers to the clerk to ensure the continuous business of the council, to deal with mandatory undertakings and anything expedient and necessary in order to prevent the authority from incurring liability during the period that the delegation is applicable".
Hillam PC request that you PLEASE follow the guidelines set by the government regarding social distancing in order to prevent the spread of the virus amongst our community and protect each other.
CORONAVIRUS Government advice can be found HERE .

Hillam Defibrillator - VETS
The Parish Council are setting up a Village Emergency Telephone System to support the use of the defibrillator - this is where local individuals volunteer to collect/deliver the defibrillator to the location it may be needed in the village. As a lone responder, it is essential in defibrillation cases that you stay to deliver CPR and ensure oxygen is still pumping through the casualty's body - the VETS enables the defibrillator to be brought to the site of the casualty by someone else while the lone responder continues chest compressions.
IF YOU NEED THE DEFIBRILLATOR BRINGING TO YOUR LOCATION
CALL: 01977 232 911
If you would like to be on the VETS list as a responder, please contact the clerk:
