Val Day RIP


It is with deep regret to hear that Val Day pass away this month.
Val was very much part of the community; in fact she was the community; and my predecessor as chairperson of the Village Hall Hall.
Val did much more; she helped with reading at the local Cowbit school, ran the Dun Cow Pub with her husband Brian and was on the committee to save it from being bulldozed.
She was elected chairperson to the Village Hall, started up brownies and ran the bingo there for 10years.
She was involved with the playing field committee and was a big supporter at St Mary’s Church, was on the PCC and did a lot of fundraising and supported many of their events
Val's family apologise for the family only funeral, due to covid restrictions, but there will be a memorial service for her next year when everyone will be welcome.

COVID-19 message from Cowbit village stores



Our policy of having only 1 customers in at one time is working really well, thank you. Thank you also for being sensible and standing a minimum of 2m apart when waiting outside.

We would like to ask however to try to reduce the frequency of your visits to the shop. Please try not to come to the shop every single day, or even more than once a day. By reducing our social contact in the shop with each other, we will reduce the risk of spreading this awful virus.
Can we also please remind everyone that our closing hours are 6:30pm now. We will be closing Mon-Sat at 6:30pm sharp.
Thank you all so much for your understanding at this time.
Stay safe everyone
