In November 2007 the residents in Caldecote, a tiny hamlet
near Newnham at the most northern tip of Hertfordshire formed an
organisation named ‘Caldecote Church Friends.’
Its purpose is to raise funds for the maintenance and restoration
of their beautiful little mediaeval church. Large scale maintenance
work is carried out by a wonderful organisation, aptly known as
‘The Friends of Friendless Churches’, but the committee
of the new local group helps with the many smaller tasks.
The parish itself is under the care of the Rector of Ashwell,
and a service is held in the church annually, usually on the patronal
feast of St. Mary Magdalene.
Apart from religious services, the group opens the church
to the public for communal events such as concerts, art exhibitions
and so on.
A Fuchsia Festival held in 2006 was a huge success, and showed
widespread interest in this little hidden heritage gem – over
500 people came to visit.
There are only seven houses in Caldecote, so the group needs help!
Anyone wishing to become a member of the group can easily do so
by filling in an application
form (24K Word File) and paying a one-off joining fee. How much?
As much or as little as you like!
