July 2016 visit from architecture students from Canadian University

On 30th July 2016, Dr. Peter Coffman of Carleton University, Ottawa wrote

Dear all,
I cannot thank you enough for the very kind and generous welcome you gave us at your church on Thursday. The tour was wonderful and my students were mesmerized by the beauty of what they saw and the stories behind it. The tea was truly above and beyond the call of duty – we are seeing many outstanding examples of medieval art and architecture on this trip, but being served tea in the nave of a Gothic parish church is a uniquely unforgettable experience. Thank you for making a very special contribution to our course.

On Sunday 21st August 2016, we were visited by the three bike riders from All Saints' Barnby-in-the Willows on their ride to all the All Saints' Churches in Nottinghamshire to raise funds for their new roof (having had their lead stolen earlier this year).  Janine and Paul Stanley and Clem Lee arrived at 3pm in time for coffee and had a quick visit around our All Saints, which none of them had visited before.  They had visited all 29 All Saints in Notts on  Friday/Saturday and Sunday and photos of all these churches are available on their FACEBOOK site "All Saints Barnby".  We took these photos of them at Hawton All Saints which was their last stop before Barnby and home.  They have raised a considerable amount of money and ridden 300kms. Well done.

I loved the video at Taylor's bell foundry. I went many years ago when one of our bells, from St Mary Magdalene, Sutton-in-Ashfield, was refurbished.

Thank you Rosemary. You must come and hear the bells at some time. They sound absolutely fantastic. Peter Tyrer

Enid & Bob Locke, whose memorials are on the wall behind the church, were very dear friends of mine. Wendy, their daughter, told me about this wonderful project.
