Cowbit Village Website - LAST UPDATE 3rd June 2019
At the latest Parish Council meeting on 14th May, a slight change at the helm. Cllr Trevor Tyrrell is still Chairman, with Cllr Chris Elliott as Vice-Chairman. Cllrs Simpson and Hook also remain and local resident Eric Fragale was co-opted on as Councillor. Long standing Councillor Harold Sharman decided to hang up his hat and not stand, but we will be seeing lots of Harold as at the Parish Council meeting, it was agreed to form a Steering Group for such large celebration events within the village, so Harold will still be an active member of the Steering Group along with 4 other volunteers. If you would like to join please contact the Parish Clerk. Volunteers are also needed for the Community Speed Watch, a total of 6 currently, but with everyone’s work commitments it leaves the numbers quite short at times. Training will be provided. Long term plans for the landscaping of the playing field are being discussed. The football pitch has now been reduced to a much smaller size and is currently in discussions to be used by Spalding United Football Club. The pavilion has now been finished after having a complete ‘make-over’ both inside and out and is available to hire for small parties or field events. The local Cowbit School Children will still have access to the field as normal. Vehicles parking on the paths have been reported, whilst this isn’t a traffic offence, on occasions they have blocked the paths completely. Please be mindful if you are parking on the paths that access is needed for pushchairs, mobility scooters and also public on foot. Discussions are taking place for land for a new Cemetery as the current Church Cemetery is almost full. There is an area suitable and the Parish Council are currently getting costs for the land and also the setting up of the area. More on that at the next meeting. The village sign is in need of being refurbished and during the winter months will be removed to preserve it. If anyone would like to quote for the works to be done then please contact the Parish Clerk. Resurfacing of the roads will be taking place soon, once we have a date the information will be on the notice board or social media. Next Parish Council meeting will be on Monday 8th July at 7.30pm in the village hall. All welcome. Mrs C.Mackenzie, Parish Clerk. 01775 670375 07769751400 firstname.lastname@example.org
