The Village of High Halden


This website was created under the joint ownership of High Halden Village Events Committee, High Halden War Memorial Hall and High Halden Parish Council. It runs alongside and is linked to the Parish Council Website. 

It is intended that this site will provide information about village organisations and clubs, services and facilities, events and activities and wider issues relevant to the village and its residents.  Under the framework provided by HugoFox, who host the site, it is possible for the site to be kept up to date and relevant without the need for technical experts.  A small group administers the site with individuals authorised to update specific pages. 

If you have any ideas, suggestions or would like to be involved please let us know via the contact page. 

It is intended that the website will have important updates and information relevant to local residents as well as some good news stories and village pictures. Through the website we will be able to issue newsletters without the need to print and deliver so that we can get information out quickly across the village.  The site works alongside the village Facebook page.

Please register for email alerts for news and events. This will mean that when a newsletter is issued on the site you will receive an email alert. Signing up for the alerts is easy:

WHAT ABOUT THOSE WITHOUT ACCESS TO THE INTERNET AND ONLINE SOCIAL MEDIA? There are many in our village who cannot access the internet, Facebook etc and it is vital that they stay in the loop. If you know someone then please talk to them (by phone or from a distance when delivering items) and update them with any news. If they want a copy of any newsletters please print one for them or let us know via the contact page or [email protected]  so that we can arrange for a printed copy to be sent or delivered to them.


There are 3 Defibrillators in the village which can be found at:

Front of the War Memorial Hall

Chequers on the Green

Sports Pavilion (Rear of Hopes Grove)

IVY COURT Surgery Prescription Box 

Prescriptions for Ivy Court Surgery patients can be posted in the white prescription box at the High Halden War Memorial. The box is emptied by Ivy Court every Wednesday. You should allow at least 7 working days for the prescription to be completed. Completed prescriptions will need to be collected from Ivy Court Surgery Dispensary. (If you want to arrange for prescriptions to be delivered please contact the surgery).  Please only put prescriptions in the box. Samples and other items should be delivered directly to Ivy Court.
