Communities

Hart District is made up of a number of distinct village and small town communities, of which Fleet is the largest. This page provides more information about the facilities and services we offer.

Community groups

There are a range of community groups that can be found across the district. Most of these are coordinated by the parish and town councils. To view any groups or events in your area, please visit our Hart parish councils page and select the relevant website for more information. 

English as your second language

If you are having trouble understanding the services we provide or need help to translate any of the documents that we publish please contact us

Pension signing

If you receive a pension from a foreign country, we can provide a stamp to confirm your life and residence in the UK.

Appointment only service

  • This service is free and by appointment only. This is so we can make sure a member of staff is available to sign or produce your documents. Please call 01252 622122 to arrange a time. 
  • During busy periods, appointments will be limited (depending on staff availability) but we will try to find a suitable time and date during our office hours.
  • If a different name appears on your pension form to that on the electoral register, you will need to bring proof of your change of name (for example, a marriage certificate).
  • If you are not a British, Irish, qualifying Commonwealth or European Union citizen, you will need to provide proof of address in the form of a bank statement or utility bill in addition to proof of ID. This is due to your name not appearing on the electoral register.
  • Everyone named on your form needs to be present at the appointment and bring photographic ID with them.
  • We are not able to advise you on how to complete your form. 
  • This service is only available to Hart residents.

Proof of life letters

Appointment only service

We also provide proof of life letters if you are applying for a foreign pension.

  • This service is free of charge and by appointment only. Please call 01252 622122 to arrange a time. 
  • You will need to provide us with any additional documentary details that you require on the letter (for example, your passport details).
  • The letter will be produced using your registered name. If you require a different name on the letter to the one with which you are registered to vote, you will need to provide proof (for example, a marriage certificate) of your change of name.
