As well as supporting the on-going maintenance and repairs to Hawton Church and Churchyard, the small and enthusiastic congregation has raised over £28,000 in funds for
installation of a W.C. (with disabled access) and a kitchenette/servery. These works have now been completed and a Thanksgiving service has been held on 2nd November 2014 at which many of the donors, including WREN and Notts. Historic Churches fund attended.
The Church is already popular for weddings and christenings but these new facilities will mean that concerts, talks, events and meetings could be held in the Church, making it the community centre for Hawton village.
The Social Committee held
a Christmas Fair in November 2012 and a musical event in March 2013. Four more events were held in 2013 as part of the fundraising campaign, including a jazz concert and an Open Day & Summer Fair. Several fundraising events were held in 2014, 2015 and
2016. For news of planned events in 2017, please go to the EVENTS page.
Friends of Hawton Church would be invited to pay an annual subscription by Direct Debit or cheque and would receive discounted entry to planned events and be notified of an annual
"Service of Thanksgiving for Friends". The opportunity to have exclusive access to the Church for a guided tour would also be available.
