Time to have a sort out and make some money while you are at it.

Let me know your street name and maybe house number or approx. location (on the Cowbit Facebook Group – Annette Turner, or via email to Darren Harper bookings@cowbitvillage). Then I will populate a map that I will share, showing what streets have Yard Sale’s happening.

Please tell your friends and family about the event, so we get lots of shoppers!


Rules
Sell what you like as long as it is legal
Keep your bits off the public paths and roads.

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.

It was installed by Hallgate Timber of Long Sutton
 

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.
 
 

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.

Cowbit Village Hall

 

In line with recent events all our activities at the Cowbit Village Hall will be suspended; this includes any committee meetings, Post Office, events & bingo. All regular groups have been asked to stop meeting until further notice.
