Church of England Diocese of Coventry Ladbroke

He's off!

15 Jun 2019, 11 a.m.

Ladbroke said farewell to Rev Craig, his wife Su and the rest of the family, including Gus the dog on Sunday 9th June, Pentecost Sunday. As our special choir of singers from the village and beyond sang the Gaelic blessing the emotions kicked in and tears began to flow.  In the past 11 years, Craig has formed a special bond with many of his Ladbroke parishioners, not just the regular churchgoers.  This was evident not just from the numbers who came to this 9am service but a packed village hall for his farewell party and the lusty singing of a bespoke version of that well known hymn,  All things bright and beautiful: 
     Su is bright and beautiful,
     Her smile could light your way,
     Craig is wise and wonderful,
     We'll miss them every day....................... plus 8 specially written verses about their time with us.  The full song will be published in July Harbury & Ladbroke News.
