“To develop and sustain a sense of community within the parish of Hawkwell by addressing environmental, economic and social issues and delivering quality services to our parishioners”.
Hawkwell is situated between Rochford and Hockley and is well served by public open spaces, playgrounds and parks. The Parish Council manages Spencers Park, adjacent to Clements Hall Leisure Centre and Magnolia Nature Reserve in Rectory Road, which has 21 acres of open space, a children’s playground, recreation area and bridleway.
The Parish has two village halls, which are used for community activities such as art classes, meetings and playgroups. Both halls are well equipped and available for hire.
The two main shopping centres in Hawkwell – the busy parade in Main Road and Golden Cross Parade and Hedingham Place – cater well for local residents.
As in all areas of the District, Hawkwell has its own historical riches. As an example the 14th-century parish church possesses a 15th-century timber belfry, supported on four massive oak posts and a fine old door that dates back to the same century.
