Garden Party for Cowbit Senior Citizens was a success!
  3 years ago, I helped at the first ever Christmas party for Cowbit seniors and was inspired to organise a garden party for them in the summer, with a traditional afternoon tea. As Andy and I have been renovating “Oakleigh” since we moved in 6 years ago, it has been put off until we were finished. As we feel privileged enough to have a lovely big garden, it is crying out to be shared.
  Thankfully, the sun shone down on us on Sunday 13th May, when 26 guests enjoyed a traditional afternoon tea on a beautiful May afternoon. After putting out a plea for bakers on the village Facebook page, we were inundated with offers! Many thanks to all those villagers who baked or made a contribution. The tiered cake stands on each table looked fabulous!
  Whilst guests chatted to friends they hadn’t seen in a while and reminisced about “this old house”, they were entertained with a variety of tunes from the 40’s upwards, played by Holbech Brass Band. 25 members in fact! I’m sure many villagers on Stonegate were able to enjoy those sounds from their gardens too! Many thanks to Chris Elliotts’s business for sponsoring the Band.
  We would like to thank so many people for all their help to make the afternoon such a success:
The Village Hall Social Events Committee, members of St. Mary’s Church, and other “Cowbiteers”,  all helped us to pull together as a community. Thanks to all those who used their braun to transport the tables and chairs from the Hall, the waitressing, sandwich makers, cake bakers, washer-uppers, and drivers to enable all those with mobility problems to be transported. 
Thanks to Gerald for tidying up the front garden to look lovely and to all our helpers who weeded, transported, served and washed up. Thanks to Colin for providing the tea, coffee and table cloths and to Helen Holmes for making the beautiful flower table decorations.
All in all, a great community social event, so with your help, Cowbit, we hope to do the same next year! 
Many thanks,
Kind regards,
Marian Gaylor
