A church in Sandridge is opening its doors to offer refreshments and a respite from the heat.

St Leonard’s Church in Church End is inviting visitors to come into the cool and enjoy tea, coffee and cakes on Sunday afternoons during August and September.

The 900-year-old church will serve refreshments from 2pm to 5pm, and members of the public are welcome to drop in and have a look around.

Associate minister Rev Peter Crumpler said: “We opened the church last August and welcomed in many visitors. This year, we have extended the opening into September as well.

“Serving refreshments gives many people with links to the church the chance to drop in and say hello. It’s also an opportunity for others to take a look around the church for the first time. If the heatwave continues, the church could be one of the coolest places to be!”

The church is also open throughout the week from 9am to 3pm.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
