July Newsletter

Dear Friends,

Summer is here, and after a very cool wet spring, we have warm weather at last! We are very blessed to be living in such a beautiful part of Cambridgeshire, and it has been lovely watching each season unfold. The beauty of God in creation is breathtaking in all its diversity. Our churchyard in particular is an incredibly beautiful and tranquil place. It is very encouraging to see the wildflower areas developing. We have lots of daisies, buttercups, cow parsley and poppies, nettles and dandelions. Going forward, we hope to encourage more biodiversity. The churchyard is also home to many different species of wildlife and insects, including bats, squirrels, foxes, rabbits, crows and small birds. Why not come in and take a wander, to see what you can spot?

I hope you have a wonderful July.

God Bless,

Revd Clare Coates, Lead Minister for Caldecote with Childerley, Dry Drayton and Hardwick
