COWBIT CHURCH RECEIVES LOTTERY GRANT
Cowbit St Mary’s is awarded £8,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). The project, led by local volunteers, will repair the clock and communicate the heritage of the church. Work will start soon and be completed by the end of 2015.
We want to trace the history back to at least 1907, the year the current clock was installed. So we are really interested to hear from anyone with memories of St Mary’s and special events that have taken place there. Please contact us to hear more, or to get involved.

In response to recent concerns about dog fouling and some other canine-related incidents within the village, South Holland District Council’s dog warden Rachel was invited to attend the meeting and answer villager’s questions. She said that she fully recognised that some areas of Cowbit had a particular problem with fouling, fully understood villagers concerns, and explained in some detail what wardens can and cannot do, and the precise extent of the law with regards fouling.
The overall message was that if the more evidence there is the easier it is to do something; anyone witnessing dog fouling on roads subject to a 40mph or lower speed limit should report it to the warden – email is quickest and best at email@example.com, though those without internet access can phone in information on 01775 761661.
Rachel also stressed that all reports are completely confidential and complainants details are never revealed. Concern was also expressed about some people who do clear up after their dogs have messed but then leave the bags somewhere; they should be taken home or deposited in a bin. Rachel also pointed out – and this was confirmed by District Council – that bagged dog mess can be deposited in normal litter bins; it does not have to go in a dedicated poo bin, as both types are emptied in the same way
