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.

We look forward to seeing more of you, Tom and Carol, and others from the village. Please let us know what you think of the bells.

My wife Carol and I are new to the Village of Hawton and our first visit to the Hawton Church was made after only a few days from our arrival, very interesting.

Hello. I will see if I can get any ringers together. If I can it will only be rounds and call changes and maybe only six bells. Margaret
