Ye Olde Dun Cow
As may would have seen on the Cowbit Village facebook group page that the Ye Olde Dun Cow has now been demolished by Market Homes. Many residents have expressed that they are not very happy with the building being pulled down and closing the path alongside the pub without notice or warning.

THE CAMPAIGN TO SAVE YE OLDE DUN COW
As you all know, The Campaign has been working tirelessly, on behalf of Cowbit Village Residents and Friends, to save Ye Olde Dun Cow from development into housing. We now need your support, by way of donations, to raise a start-up fund of £500, which will enable us to attract additional funding to step up our efforts to re-instate the pub as a social hub for the village. The Campaign is currently funded by the Campaign Members. Any additional financial help, no matter how big or small, would be thankfully received. Please contact us for further details on email@example.com.
Amount Raised So Far £300. Thank you
Superfast broadband is coming
Onlincolnshire is working on bring Superfast Broadband to Lincolnshire. The first part of phase one including an upgrade to the Moulton Chapel exchange that serves Cowbit is live already (there is fibre optic cable from Moulton Chapel exchange back to the Spalding exchange). Western Power have also installed a cabinet in Cowbit from which connections to your home are taken. Onlincolnshire have not given a “go live” date other then phase one would be complete by spring 2014.
Once your home line is upgraded you will be able to order a new broadband package from any Internet Service Provider (IPS). The upgrades are not 'automatic'. It works the same way as gas and electricity, you choose the Internet Service Provider with the best price and package for your needs, even though the data will always come down the same BT network.
We will publish the ‘go live’ date here on the Cowbit village website as soon as we are notified of it by Onlincolnshire.
Cab is all but complete, just needs back up Batteries fitting. Urged for this to be a priority job for BT
