Pawlett Church

 

 

Greetings from Pawlett

“The Church Wardens, PCC and Congregation of St John the Baptist Church, Pawlett are delighted to be a part of this new era of union between our five Parishes we welcome the opportunity to be a part of this vital means of communication and dissemination of information.

The Haggett Memorial Garden

As with other village Churchyards, the beautiful space at St John the Baptist is much loved and used and we are very proud that we keep it looking beautiful all year round and now we are planning a new feature. We haven’t been able to find out how long the Haggett family has lived in  and played a big part in Pawlett village life but sadly the last member of the family moved out of the village last year. We were contacted by one of their representatives as they wished to purchase a bench or suitable family memorial and after consultation with the PCC we have agreed to plant a small landscaped garden, named after them with a seating area and they are delighted with the idea. We already have a Royal British Legion Garden of Remembrance and this will face it, by the main gate so that it can be seen and enjoyed by the many people who use the Churchyard for exercise and walking their dogs – and often just to sit and contemplate.

The Haggett Family has chosen plants that mean a lot to them and remind them of their loved ones and they will fund the garden design, landscaping and plants; we hope to have a planting party in the summer – when restrictions are hopefully lifted – and dedicate this new addition to a family who has many of their forebears buried round about. I look forward to posting “before and after” photographs.

Pawlett St John the Baptist

Welcome to Pawlett and the village church- St John the Baptist.

Pawlett is a middle-sized village within the benefice with a population of around 1400 people. Just off the A38 it is situated near the Pawlett Hams and the River Parrett and comprises a mixture of old and new houses, farms and farmland and a wide demographic spread including many old village families.

The Church Building: Grade I and over 1000 years old, Sir John  Betjeman gave St John the Baptist “five stars” but to the people of Pawlett it’s the heart of our village and more than just a building. It is well maintained and all works recommended in our Quinquennial report are carried out. The pews are exceptional examples of Jacobean carpentry and we have a Hill, single manual organ which is in good working order and used every week.

Amenities: Pawlett recently lost its only village shop and Post Office, but the community centres around our thriving Royal British Legion Club, Pavilion Sports and Social Centre and busy Village Hall. There is also a Methodist Chapel and Hall. There are two play areas with modern equipment, on the village green and at the Pavilion. A regular bus  service runs between Burnham on Sea, Bridgwater and Taunton and we are less than five minutes’ drive from the M5 Motorway.
