BURTON DASSETT RESTORATION COMMITTEE
was originally set up to undertake the task of uncovering and preserving the medieval wall paintings in All Saints' Church. The final stages of this work were completed in 2009 when the wall paintings were stabilised and the Church re-decorated internally using a traditional limewash.
Since then the Committee has continued to hold regular fund raising events in order to help the PCC with essential and costly maintenance work, which on a building of this size and age is an ongoing process.

ALL SAINTS CHURCH, BURTON DASSETT, SERVERY AND TOILET FACILITIES
All Saints Church is a very popular venue and is used regularly for concerts, weddings, christenings funerals and a variety of church social and community events. However, at present it lacks toilet and servery facilities. These facilities can help churches to survive and the lack of such facilities is increasingly found to be putting people off from attending church services and events.
Toilets allow churches to become more welcoming to worshippers, especially the elderly and those with young children. Servery facilities enable a wider hospitality through being able to offer refreshments. Both are essential for churches like All Saints wanting to increase use through hosting a variety of worship and local community events such as concerts. Without this accommodation the church is finding the holding of such events is becoming increasingly difficult.
The church and more importantly the PCC (Parochial Church Council) has therefore initiated a project to provide a servery and toilets aptly named “Toilets and Taps” and is therefore in the process of seeking funding.
