To lead, give value and help

HAPTC is a membership organisation financed by subscriptions from parish, community and town councils and parish meetings. We offer support, advice and training to our members to enable them to serve their communities to the best of their abilities. Our specialist field is in parish council law and procedure, but we can advise or signpost on a wide range of subjects including employment, financial controls, risk management, allotments, burial grounds, code of conduct, village greens and playgrounds.

We represent parish councils to district/borough, county, regional and national bodies and work to enhance communication with everyone within the Parish Council network.

As a membership association HAPTC is unable to deal with queries from members of the public, but is happy to make general information available through this website.

Membership is open to any parish, community or town council or parish meeting which pays an annual subscription to the Association.

Invitation for your Chairman: Buckingham Palace Garden Party 31st May 2018

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 10:22 by Sue Campbell

Please use this form to nominate your Current Chairman or Mayor to attend on 31st May 2018 and email to sue@haptc.org.uk. Deadline Friday 26th January 9am

This opportunity is available to HAPTC members only. More »

Before entering, please ensure that, in the event of being drawn, they would be available to attend.

The Lord Chamberlain has asked us to highlight the following:

  • The nominated guests should be accompanied and MUST be if needing assistance (which must be indicated; disabled parking is only available on request)
  • All nominees and accompanying guests must be 18 or over
  • Guests must take a form of identification with them (passport/driving license); all full names and addresses quoted must exactly reflect these, even if they differ from their day-to-day use
  • All nominated guests must be British or European Union citizens, with a valid current passport; although their companions may be of other nationalities. All guests, nominated or accompanying, must be resident in the United Kingdom.
  • Nominated or accompanying guests may not have previously attended a Garden Party.
  • Invitations are in recognition of past service and it is therefore appropriate that outgoing members, rather than those newly selected, should be invited to attend.
  • In the event that guests cannot attend (for whatever reason) they will not be invited again

Finally, it must be stressed that no alterations or substitutions can be made once the list has been submitted to the Lord Chamberlain's office.
