Dear Friends,

We are looking forward to seeing many of you at our annual Church fete this weekend. After a rainy week, we are praying for better weather for Saturday! There will be lots to see and do, and we are providing refreshments throughout the afternoon. We will also have on display lots of information about the Church and the Cabin, and our plans for the repairs of the Church building. Caldecote village is also holding an Open Gardens Event at the Old Rectory on Saturday and Sunday afternoon, and all are welcome to come and visit the beautiful garden and enjoy afternoon tea. For further details on both events, please see the ‘what’s on’ section below.

I hope you have a good weekend and I look forward to seeing you soon.

God Bless, 
Revd Clare Coates,

Lead Minister for Dry Drayton, Hardwick and Caldecote with Childerley
