Hythe and Dibden Parish Hall

Do you use the Parish Hall? Did you know that Hythe and Dibden has a Parish Hall that you can rent? Our Hall is spotlessly clean thanks to the hard work of Ray and Heidi our caretakers but it is a little bit tired and we are aware that it could do with some refurbishment and updating. Councillors are really keen to hear what you think and we are asking the community to let us know what you would like to see improved, or even added to the Parish Hall. You can pick up a hard copy of the survey from the Grove or you can complete the survey online: SURVEY

New Year Message from the Chairman

As we welcome 2019, on behalf of my fellow Councillors and staff, may I wish you all a happy and peaceful year.

We are working hard to implement our Neighbourhood Plan. We are open to suggestions from the community.

We all hope that new businesses will come to Hythe and join our new food store.

Please look out for the wonderful flower displays and planters around the area.

Please contact the Council if you have problems we can deal with.

Best wishes

Cllr Maureen McLean

Chairman of Hythe and Dibden Parish Council

The Parish Council is continuing a tradition that is a memorable and distinctive way for the community to thank and pay special tribute to the people of Hythe and Dibden whose work and efforts show excellence, commitment and achievement.

Hythe and Dibden Parish Council are seeking tenders for the supply of a new Nissan NT400 CABSTAR TIPPER MWB TWIN REAR WHEEL or similar type of vehicle.
