Complaints Procedure

The trustees of the HPFRGC always endeavour to follow the charity’s objects to ensure the best outcomes for the beneficiaries of the charity - namely the parishioners of, and visitors to, Hickling.

The trustees are committed to providing services that reflect the needs and diversity of the community the charity serves, and to do so in a way that is open and consultative.

If you have a complaint please tell us about it so that we can consider it, take appropriate action and improve our service.

A complaint is difficult to deal with unless it is reported speedily so we will not normally consider complaints about something that happened more than five working days ago.

First, it is best to talk about your concern to a trustee.  A contact list of trustees is available from our chairman Nick Baker (address below). 

If following the informal route you wish to make a formal complaint you should do so to:

Nick Baker

Chairman HPFRGC

c/o Briarley Lodge

Stubb Road,


NR12 0BN
