The Trust

The Hawkhurst Community Trust 2018 was established as an independent charity to improve community facilities in the area for all local residents.

The major project that HCT 2018 is at present involved with is the new community centre for Hawkhurst. Working in partnership with Hawkhurst Parish Council, HCT 2018 is in the process of building a solid business plan for the new facility. HCT 2018 is also engaging with residents through workshops, events and individual meetings to ensure that the new community hub reflects and meets the various needs of a growing community. Findings from work carried out by HCT 2018 feed into the design brief to influence the shape of the new building and its infrastructure. Once the Hawkhurst community centre project is completed (scheduled for completion in 2022/23), Hawkhurst Parish Council will lease the centre to HCT 2018 to operate and the Trust will then be in charge of its day-to-day running.

The HCT 2018 team comprises 10 Trustees drawn from the local community. They are all unpaid volunteers with diverse backgrounds and skills who are united in their desire to improve living and recreational conditions in Hawkhurst.
