10th anniversary of Cowbit FB
June 24th marks the 10th anniversary of the Cowbit Facebook group originally under
a different name; it was set up as a support group for residents to organise fundraising for the following year's Golden Jubilee in 2012.
At the time it was only considered to be temporary for a one-off event and after it was completed would be deleted, we didn’t even use a website for the village.
By the time we held the Jubilee, social media had grown even more and the group had grown in members to over 200 and proved very useful at getting the message out to people very quickly.
The Facebook group now has 1.9K members; not all residents but the vast majority are connected to the village and is supported by a team of 5 admin members that look after the membership and make sure the rules are being followed.
Mon 19th Jul we are open to party
The Cowbit Village Hall is looking forward to welcoming people for their celebrations when we enter step 4 planned for July 19th, 2021.
We have made some changes to keep the hall Covid safe and will give a full refund if the event has to be cancelled due to any new Covid restrictions.

Celebrating Village Hall week
Cowbit Village hall celebrated Village Hall week in January by having our outdoor storage lodge built. This will be used by the Cowbit School, Cowbit Tiny Tots, the village hall, & community. Donations was given to us by lotto funding, Cowbit Parish council , Village Hall and SHDC councillors (Cllrs. Anthony Casson, Andrew Woolf & Rodney Grocock) charity budget.
The storage is part of the bigger project to improve the outdoor facilities at the Village Hall; it started last year with the construction of 2 disabled parking bays, re-gravel the car park, installing new drainage and a base for the new lodge.
