Cowbit Church Clock Appeal
Don't stop the clock on Cowbit church !! You will probably have noticed that it is not working.
£10,500 is required for essential repair and improvement. Of that, part has been donated by local council, our dedicated team is working to secure funding from charities and the lottery, but we shall not achieve our target without help from individuals and businesses in the local community.
If you have enjoyed the presence of a functioning clock, however accurate, in your village, want to ensure its continued survival, want to ensure you're on time for your christening, wedding, worship, or whatever.
In early December an extremely successful Open Evening event was held at the hall, in order to show villagers what has been done so far and to gain feedback on this and our future plans. A number of very useful suggestions were received which will be of great use in helping implement the next stage of the improvement programme.
Winner of £200 Draw was number 26 Mr Stuart Wyllie of Cowbit.
The number was pulled out by Mary Fear, who was on the committee when the village hall opened in 1987
