June Newsletter

Dear Friends,

What a difference the sunshine makes! It’s been wonderful to have some warm spring weather at last after what feels like endless rain! The Churchyard has benefitted from both the warmth and the rain, and it is looking very pretty with the long grass areas dotted with buttercups, forget me nots, and nettles, which are a magnet for insects. We recently held Café Church in the Churchyard and conducted a survey, discovering lots of different flowers, wildflowers, shrubs and trees including wild primroses, forget-me-nots, daisies, buttercups and violets. We even host our own rookery! And the rooks are very busy nesting and feeding their young. We also spotted beautiful orange tip butterflies, bumble bees and ladybirds. We have a resident population of bats, and undoubtedly are visited by foxes, badgers and hedgehogs. We are very keen to encourage wildlife and are working hard to increase our biodiversity. No mow May has been observed in the hope of encouraging wildlife to flourish! We will also be looking into the Eco Church awards run by the Christian environmental organisation A Rocha, with the aim of trying to achieve the bronze award. Do keep an eye out on our website as we move forward with this exciting project! I hope you have a wonderful June and I look forward to seeing you soon.

God Bless,


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