Cambridgeshire Historic Churches Trust Engage Award Winners 2018 #5 St Mary’s, Hardwick

What our judge said:
The opening sentence of Hardwick’s supporting information begins ‘After considerable discussion the rear pews….were removed..’ People can be reluctant to remove fixed pews but, if like Hardwick, a decision is made then the benefits are significant. Look at what the church can now offer the wider community – space and the ability to host activities for a wide range of groups, all in such splendid surroundings.
