08 September 2019Cadeby Church CLOSED this week

Following our harvest service, Cadeby Church will now remain CLOSED  until at least the end of this week, while work is carried out to replace the main churchyard path.

The work is being carried out by JP Landscapes, who have made it very clear that the path must not be walked on at all while the new surface is being laid. (It will also require a short time to ‘cure’ once they have left the site on the final day of work).

If the weather is favourable, the work may be finished by Friday but it is possible that it might slip into the following week.

We will let you know as soon as the church is open again.

03 September 2019Cadeby harvest service & bring-and-share buffeting

You are invited to join us for a service of harvest thanksgiving in Cadeby Church on Sunday September 8 at 2.30pm.​

We will be collecting non-perishable food stuffs, long-life drinks and personal care items to be donated to Hinckley Area Foodbank, which can be brought along on the day. ​

If you’re not able to attend the service but are able to make a contribution, the church is open daily, and there is a Foodbank donations box on the pew just inside the main door, which is used to collect for the cause throughout the year.​

Monetary offerings made at the service will also be donated to the Foodbank.​

Afterwards, you are invited to join us for a bring-and-share ploughman’s style buffet in the church hall.​

There will be some bread, cheese, meats and quiche provided but please bring something to add to the spread, and whatever you would like to drink. Glasses will be available.​

30 July 2019Cadeby Fete 2019

THE RAIN came down but Cadeby Fete had things covered, as the annual village church fundraiser sailed ahead despite the weather.

A fully-fitted tea and entertainment marquee, dog show tent and stalls under canvas meant fete-goers hardly felt a drop as they enjoyed all the traditional attractions, plus live music and a Pimm’s bar in the glorious grounds of Manor Farm on Saturday July 27.

The event, which was attended by Bosworth Benefice Priest in Charge, the Revd Mark Poskitt and new curate the Revd Ann Hall, raised £ 3,472 towards the ongoing maintenance and preservation of the Grade II* listed village church.

Unsold donations of good quality clothes and white elephant wares have been donated to Mind, the mental health charity, British Heart Foundation and the Air Ambulance service.

Cadeby Churchwarden Janet Hicklin, who opened the fete, said: “On behalf of Cadeby Church, I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who made the fete possible and everyone who turned up and supported us in spite of the rain. We really do appreciate it.

“And special thanks must go to our amazing hosts, Jane and Louis Massarella, without whom none of it would have been possible.  We hope the rain will help their garden get back to looking lovely again very soon.”

A record-breaking raffle raised £961, with prizes donated by Cadeby and Market Bosworth-based businesses FP McCann, The Black Horse, Bosworth Hall Hotel, Co-op, Pink Gin Boutique, Lily & Mabel, as well as The Hercules Revived in Sutton Cheney, Conkers Discovery Centre and others.

A family fun dog show, which also included pedigree and puppy classes, was sponsored by Pingle Pets & K9 Kampus, on Ashby Road, with a visiting pooch from Yorkshire crowned Best in Show.

Attractions included a working display by Hinckley Model Railway Society, in a nod to Cadeby’s most famous former ‘Steam Vicar’, the Revd Teddy Boston, who appeared as The Fat Clergyman (not to be confused with The Fat Controller) in the Thomas the Tank Engine books.

The church in which Mr Boston served is opened daily by village volunteers who are currently raising money to replace the main church path with a more attractive and safer surface.

19 June 2019Advance Notice of Surface Dressing

From Leicestershire County Council

Surface Dressing Notification of Works.

The following roads in your Parish have surface dressing works programmed for this summer period, some may have already been completed. 

Sutton Lane, Wood Lane and Church Lane – end of June.

Surface dressing is a preventative maintenance treatment that seals the road surface, extends the life of the road, reduces the occurrence of potholes and increases skid resistance by laying chippings on a bitumen “glue” and then rolling them into the surface.  Excess chippings are swept up and then compacted further by vehicular traffic.  Road markings are replaced afterwards.  The works are quick moving and, dependent upon the road length numerous sites can be completed in a day. The scheduling of the visit will depend upon the size of stone being used, and it may be necessary to visit your village at the beginning and end of the season.  The treatment is weather dependant, and whilst we will try to work to a programme some slippage will be expected for wet weather, and some roads may have to be reprogrammed for either later this year or for next year.  Residents of roads affected in the Parish will receive the attached leaflet 1 working day prior to the works so that arrangements can be made to move any vehicles.
