The Hindol Website
The village website was adopted by the Parish Council in January 2017. In addition to being a source of local information and reports generally, it serves as a window into the work of the Parish Council, including agendas, meetings minutes and financial reports.
Residents can request allowable content to be included by contacting the website manager, Phil Brown, using firstname.lastname@example.org. For a quick overview of the menu and sub-menu layout have a look at the Site Menu Index.
Pudding Night – get your just desserts in September!!

Wanna Join My Gang?
Neil Lewis is looking for volunteers to assist him doing a ‘makeover’ of the fence that runs alongside one side of the Village Hall. This might be suitable for teenagers undertaking the Duke of Edinburgh scheme; this activity could fulfil part of the voluntary service to the community requirement. See the Wanna Join My Gang poster for more details.
Village Hall Programme for September 2017
One thing to highlight at this stage is the drop in night on Thursday 21st September. Between 7pm and 9pm the hall will be open, Sue (a patchwork quilter) will be present, trying to finish off a project. Refreshments will be available and anyone with a needleworky, crafty project is welcome to just drop in, for help or a chat and a cuppa. This is Sue’s initiative and anyone will be made welcome. She plans to open the hall on the first and third Thursday evenings, so she will be there again on 5th October.
