Cowbit Village Website - LAST UPDATE 3rd Aug 2015

                                       FUN ON THE FIELD!

Cowbit residents need to mark September 12 in the diary now, as an important community event is taking place on the Cowbit playing field from 3.00pm.

Organised jointly by Cowbit Parish Council and the Village Hall Committee, Fun on the Field is intended to provide an enjoyable community-building afternoon/evening for all village residents.


This is NOT about raising funds for anything in the village (therefore it is a FREE event – no charges for admission) but simply about enjoying the day and celebrating the fabulous village environment in which we are lucky enough to live. The organisers are hoping to build on the success of the Jubilee celebrations and other recent village get-togethers.


Attractions will include

*Sports competitions for the young, not so long and positively archaic– competing for traditional Cowbit village trophies

*Beer tent

*Quality Lincolnshire Barbeque

*Charity and fund-raising stalls from local organisations

*Car boot sale (3.00-6.00) – free stalls but strictly Cowbit residents only.  NO vans, no traders, limited to 30 stalls. ALL stalls MUST be booked in advance; call Peter Simpson 01406 380280 or email

*Vintage and classic car/tractor/commercial vehicle display featuring locally-owned vehicles

*Arena Events including tug a war – kids and adults – plus dance and other displays

*Fairground rides – subject to confirmation


Public admission from 3.00pm onwards.


For further information or to book charity stalls etc., contact Darren Harper on 01406 380774 or email or Peter Simpson on 01406 380280 or

Following the accident on the A16 in June that resulted in HGVs through Cowbit for the whole of a Friday morning, Cowbit Parish Council sent a letter of complaint to Lincolnshire Police. Last Thursday I had a meeting with Sgt Hall from Spalding Police station to discuss this. She heard our concerns, and she agreed to look into matters. She has now contacted me to accept our invitation to attend the next Parish Council meeting (takes place next Monday - July 20) and hopefully provide a solution - we all know it's not a matter of if there's another accident but when,....


I need to stress that her remit covers only diversions following road traffic accidents - roadworks diversions as we are experiencing at present come under Lincolnshire County Council highways dept.


However if we want to avoid a repeat of June's lorry 'invasion' next time there's an accident, we need to speak up now - so please come along if you have something to say...
