Cowbit Village Website - LAST UPDATE 15th July 2014
From Alison Combes, Editor of Village Voice Community Magazine
All Saints Moulton and St James Moulton Chapel have now joined with St Mary’s Whaplode and St John’s Holbeach Fen to form a new benefice, known as the Elloe Stone Parishes, and have therefore moved from the deanery of Elloe West to Elloe East. In line with this move, I feel that the time is now right to change the area covered by our local magazine, The Village Voice, and I am supported in this by the PCCs concerned and Revd Rosamund, Rural Dean of Elloe East, and Revd Julie Timings, vicar of the Elloe Stone parishes.
With effect from the February 2015 edition, the magazine will no longer be able to cover the villages of Cowbit, Weston and Weston Hills but will instead include Holbeach St John’s, Saracen’s Head, Whaplode and Whaplode St Catherine’s, along with the existing villages of Moulton, Moulton Chapel and Moulton Seas End. I want to give you all plenty of time to adapt and feel it is sensible to continue as we are to the end of the year. The final issue of the magazine as it is now will therefore cover December 2014/January 2015 as a double edition.

The Village Postcard Project
This summer, community artist Jo Wheeler will be exploring the identity of Pinchbeck, Whaplode, Moulton and Cowbit as part of Transporter’s Creative Consultation. She’ll spend time talking with local people about their village – finding out about the folklore, economy, history, landscape, architecture, geology, wildlife and characters that make each place unique.
Jo will then drew on these conversations using photography to create a series of six postcards for the village, selected with the community, to reflect and celebrate each location.
Jo is also keen to use the local buses and shelters as spaces to exhibit the images. Visit http://thevillagepostcardproject.wordpress.com/ to follow the project and contribute to the conversation by sharing your thoughts and ideas.
