Action Plan

Action and Future Plans

The Parish Council takes its responsibility very seriously and strives  continually to  improve the Hawthorn to make it a pleasant village where people are proud to be part of our community.

When we set our budget for the next financial year, members try and think about what the council can do to achieve our aspirations in the next year and beyond. These may include ensuring there is a small finacial provision to enable the improvements / events to  be made  and in addition often applications can be made to both local and national funding bodies to provide those facilities which otherwise would not have been possible.

Over the past five years the council has been successful in their funding  applications for a number of projects including:-

community defibrillator

community smart tv and wireless internet in the community centre

provision of new computer equipment for the parish council

Further larger  applications have been successful for  a 'community plant' scheme for and more recently a 'keeping you in the know' project which involved new solar powered noticeboards and a lectern.

Further details on this here.

Often our projects do not need 'hard cash' - just goodwill and volunteers. These have included our Litterpick, Community Bulb Planting,  Open Gardens etc. Full details here.
