10th anniversary of Cowbit FB

 

June 24th marks the 10th anniversary of the Cowbit Facebook group originally under a different name; it was set up as a support group for residents to organise fundraising for the following year's Golden Jubilee in 2012.
At the time it was only considered to be temporary for a one-off event and after it was completed would be deleted, we didn’t even use a website for the village.


By the time we held the Jubilee, social media had grown even more and the group had grown in members to over 200 and proved very useful at getting the message out to people very quickly. 

The following year we found we needed a second Facebook group to deal with all the commercial requests for businesses we were getting and swamping the posts of community information and questions.

The Facebook group now has 1.9K members; not all residents but the vast majority are connected to the village and is supported by a team of 5 admin members that look after the membership and make sure the rules are being followed.
 
10 years after and a year through Covid it has proven itself to be a valuable resource in a virtual world where online teaching and working is commonplace;  and who knows what it will look like in the next 10 years. 
Happy 10th Birthday CowbitVillage Facebook group

Celebrating Village Hall week

 


Cowbit Village hall celebrated Village Hall week in January by having our outdoor storage lodge built. This will be used by the Cowbit School, Cowbit Tiny Tots, the village hall, & community. Donations was given to us by lotto funding, Cowbit Parish council , Village Hall and SHDC councillors (Cllrs. Anthony Casson, Andrew Woolf & Rodney Grocock) charity budget.

It was installed by Hallgate Timber of Long Sutton
 

The storage is part of the bigger project to improve the outdoor facilities at the Village Hall; it started last year with the construction of 2 disabled parking bays, re-gravel the car park, installing new drainage and a base for the new lodge.
 
 

Val Day RIP

 

It is with deep regret to hear that Val Day pass away this month.
Val was very much part of the community; in fact she was the community; and my predecessor as chairperson of the Village Hall Hall.
Val did much more; she helped with reading at the local Cowbit school, ran the Dun Cow Pub with her husband Brian and was on the committee to save it from being bulldozed.
She was elected chairperson to the Village Hall, started up brownies and ran the bingo there for 10years.
She was involved with the playing field committee and was a big supporter at St Mary’s Church, was on the PCC and did a lot of fundraising and supported many of their events
.
Val's family apologise for the family only funeral, due to covid restrictions, but there will be a memorial service for her next year when everyone will be welcome.
