Welcome to Hickling

Hickling is a small village set in the beautiful surroundings of the Norfolk Broads and based on the edge of Hickling broad. Its origins may date back as far as the Bronze age and is referred to in the Domesday book as Hikelinga and being held by the freeman Godwin prior to 1066.

As well as the broad we have two village Inns, a church and chapel, a small primary school and a wonderful nature reserve. We have facilities for sailors, canoeists, wild life enthusiasts and photographers. We also have a recently built Village hall “Hickling Barn”, all set in tranquil and relaxing surroundings.

Hickling Village Fireworks and Bonfire Party

Sunday 3rd November

The annual fireworks and bonfire party will be held on the playing field on Sunday 3rd November. The gates will be open from 5pm with the bonfire being lit at 6pm followed by the fireworks at 6.30pm. There will be a variety of food and drink available including crispy duck wraps, gourmet burgers, donuts and waffles. Glenn will be doing his traditional mulled cider! Entrance is free but donations will be greatly appreciated with all money raised going to next years fireworks. The more money raised the better the fireworks!

Thank You

We would like to say a massive thank you to those people who attended the Parish Walk on Sunday, every one had a great time walking in the warm sunshine. We would also like to say thank you to the people who came to see the bells at St Mary’s and who had fun giving them a chime!

An especially big thank you to those who helped with the litter pick particularly Jo Belsten,  Stuart Patterson and the Lawes Family! Over five sacks of rubbish were picked up including a wheel hub with various other bits and the ubiquitous Mac Donald’s wrappers.

We can all help to keep our village litter free by remembering to take our litter home or by placing it in the various bins located around the village.
