Macmillan Coffee event

 

The Cowbit Macmillan Coffee Morning is planned for Saturday 27th Sept 10am-2pm at Cowbit Village Hall

 

Why have several Macmillan events around the village when we can have one big one at the village hall and pull together and may also make new friends and raise money for charity.

Cowbit Village Hall to become school dining room

 

With the new school year, new rules mean that schools must provide free hot meals at lunchtime for all five and six year olds. Many schools are concerned about finding space for this. There’s no such problem in Cowbit though, as the village school have arranged to use the adjacent village hall as a dining room five days a week during term time.

Village Hall Committee chair Darren Harper said “the Cowbit village hall is a community facility that’s available for the use of all village residents and organisations, so when we heard that the school were looking for somewhere for the pupils to eat, we were delighted to help out. Using the hall makes sense as otherwise the school would have to set up dining tables in classrooms, which clearly isn’t ideal. Our hall, however, is an ideal location, almost next door to the school, and with seating for up to 100, we’ve lots of space. We’ve also recently invested in new chairs, meaning pupils will be able to eat in comfort”
