Cowbit Village Website - LAST UPDATE 8th Nov 2014
Over the past couple of months, the village hall committee have undertaken major improvement works to the village hall. New tables and chairs have been provided, the hall is being decorated to give a fresh new look, and the village hall committee is looking to improve heating and lighting as well as a number of more drastic changes improvements.
To give villagers a chance to see what’s been done so far – and to give feedback on other proposals – an Open House evening is being held on Friday December 5, starting at 7.00pm. It’s hoped that representatives of all the organisations currently using the hall will be in attendance, and there will be games and activities for the young and not-so-young. Admission will be free and light refreshments available. Tickets for next year’s Village Hall Draw will also be on sale, and as an additional incentive to ‘sign up’ everyone who joins or renews on the night will receive a FREE pint, glass of wine or soft drink.
