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
