Caldecote Church Friends had a very successful 2014.

With the help of the Beds. and Herts. Fuchsia Society, we again held an excellent Fuchsia Festival in July; In September we participated in the Heritage Open Days, and in December we again held a most enjoyable ‘Carols by Candlelight (this time two sessions – both full).
This was followed by one supporter, Mathew Jones, reading ‘A Christmas Carol’ again by candlelight.

In between these events, the Secretary conducted small groups on guided tours of the church, and gave talks, illustrated by a slideshow, at other venues.

All these events helped to raise funds towards the repair of the nave and tower roofs. I am pleased to say that the work has started this month, and will cost
The Friends of Friendless Churches about £20,000.00. CCF, with your help in fundraising, will be contributing £7500.00 towards this.

Thanks to a generous individual donation, the rotted wooden chancel floor has been re-furbished, and in March the graveyard and church surround will get a professional ‘makeover’. We have added to our publications with a booklet telling the story of Mary Flint, Caldecote’s only female parish clerk.

Your committee has organised all this, but we cannot carry on without your continued help.

Please enter the dates of our planned 2015 events (attached) in your nice new diaries – and come along and bring your friends!

Many thanks for your support.
