Parish of Heckfield
Understandably, you may find social distancing boring and frustrating. You may find your mood and feelings are affected and you may feel low, worried or have problems sleeping.
Heckfield has some great countryside around and being outdoors with nature is a great way to get much-needed fresh air and exercise during these times.
While we encourage you to get outdoors, please consider other residents and self isolate if your are feeling unwell or experiencing symptoms consistent with the COVID-19 infection.
Everyone is encouraged to follow social distancing guidelines by keeping a distance of 6 feet or more between you and others.
Stay safe and well. Heckfield PC ❤️
Heckfield is a rural parish in North East Hampshire. It is one of the parishes of Hart District Council and is in the Hartley Wintney Ward. Our District Councillors are Anne Crampton, Andrew Renshaw and Tim Southern. At county level, Heckfield is part of the Hartley Wintney Ward and our county councillor is David Simpson.
The village of Heckfield can be traced back to the time of the Roman occupation. The name derives from the Saxon "High Veld" and, from the footpaths that criss-cross the fields around the village, there are outstanding views of the surrounding Hampshire countryside. At the time of the Norman Conquest, William the Conqueror gave land around Heckfield to the de Port family who founded the present Parish Church of St Michael.
Today, Heckfield has about 230 registered electors living in many different styles of accommodation from small cottages to large country houses. The village makes an ideal centre for a country break holiday or an out-of-town stopover for business trips.
