Dear Friends,

It was wonderful to see so many villagers at our church fete last weekend, and despite the cold day, all enjoyed a very happy afternoon at the Cabin browsing amongst the many stalls and enjoying the fantastic games. My thanks to all those who helped behind the scenes to create such a memorable and special occasion. We also launched our St Mary’s restoration appeal, to raise funds to repair the church. Whilst we hope money saved over the years in the Church fabric fund will cover most of the cost of the ceiling plaster survey and repairs, we know that the structural work will require fundraising and grant applications. We would be very grateful for any help you may be able to offer. Some ways you could help might include:

a donation. Please Contact our Church Treasurer, Clare Bigg 01954 211673

help applying for grant funding

organising a fundraiser for the Church

pray for us as we work to preserve and conserve our Parish Church for future generations

We are immensely grateful for all the support over recent years from so many in the village. Your help fundraising for the Cabin made our vision possible. We have come so far but we still have a lot of work to do. We are committed to and passionate about being your Church, for everybody in our community.

God Bless,

Revd Clare Coates,

Lead Minister for Dry Drayton, Hardwick and Caldecote with Childerley
