Welcome to South Hykeham Parish Council’s website. We trust you find this both useful and interesting.
South Hykeham is a village in the North Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, set approximately 5 miles south of Lincoln, just outside its larger namesake of North Hykeham. The village was mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086 when it was described at “Hichum” and consisted of 14 households and two fisheries.
The parish is now split into two distinctive areas – the old village and the newer part which has grown up along Newark Road. The Village area is still rural with a small parish church, St Michael’s and All Angels, a small primary school, areas of farmland and several houses. The Newark Road area (Fosseway Ward) is by contrast a much larger area made up of many homes and businesses.
South Hykeham Parish Council welcomes residents to attend the monthly meetings which are held the second Wednesday of every month in South Hykeham Village Hall, commencing at 7.30 pm. The meetings always start with a police report and an open session where residents can raise concerns/ask questions etc.
The Council is split into two Wards – Fosseway and Village – and is made up of 7 councillors. Some elected, some co-opted.
The Chairman of our Parish Council is Councillor Mrs Pamela Whittaker and Vice Chair is Mr Gary Edwards, both have been parish councillors for several years now. They are joined by three other experienced councillors and the Clerk, Susan Hill.
Presently (October 2013) we have two vacancies for parish councillors so if you would be interested in joining South Hykeham Parish Council as a co-opted member please contact the Clerk of your local parish councillor to express an interest.
