Cowling Gala 2015
After a slow start, a group of very enthusiastic villagers met and a new committee was formed to ensure that Cowling Gala will continue into 2015. Without the dedication of these people, the history of the Gala, which spans over 70 years would indeed be lost. However we do still need to know what YOU want from the Gala – so please come along to the next Gala meeting on 12th November, 7.30 pm in the Bay Horse .

FORMER COWLING TENNIS CLUB: Calling all old members of the fromer Cowling Tennis Club which has not been active since 1989, though at the time every effort was made to maintain the interest. Now that a new Recreation Ground Management Committee is up and running - under the" umbrella" of Cowling Parish Council who own the land - decisions need to be made about funds invested and silver trophies in storage. while there are still people left who remember anything about it!
A small informal meeting was held in July 2013 with 3 of the known old members, but nothing has been heard since then. As 2 trustees were from the old parish council (pls refer to minutes 2005/6 and May 2007 still on the council website)
this matter really does need to be finalized.

Hi all,

I moved to the village about a year ago - and have recently been in talks with the Parish Council about restoring the old K6 style phone box. The aim is to turn the phone box into a library/swap shop.

If anybody has any thoughts, ideas, or would like to help - please get in touch.

You can also stay connected via the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/cowlingswapshop

Cheers,

Paul

A man this village should be proud of. Maybe we should be asking ourselves what we can do to help him in the Invictus Games? Funding? A grant? Publicity?

Thanks to the good people who strimmed and tidied up the parish church graveyard recently - some of the lovely graves can now been seen! Interesting one -though now minus its plaque- belongs to a Mr. Newman who used to own the Springwell Laundry at one time - was told that its made from the fossilized tree found near Sutton Pinnacle around 1905! Other parts of it are still in the village also.

Can anyone recommend a reliable painter/decorator in the local area please? It's for some external painting. (Fed up of being let down by tradesmen who say they'll come to give a quote and then don't bother getting in touch!!)

MISSING POST - just wondering if anyone else has had post gone missing lately - will check with the regular postman asap to see if he knows anything - think there might have been a postal strike in the Bradford area for a couple of days, but the backlog should have been cleared by now! A token sent to the Bradford area has not arrived, and a couple of letters from there have not arrived here as yet!

We are having a Field Fun Day in Intake Field, Park Lane from 2.30pm to 6.00pm There will be Wellie Throwing, Races etc. Light refreshments will be available, but outdoor seating may be a problem.

Cowling Gala alive then please come to the

It's been reported that yesterday (Monday 7th July) the village lengthsman noticed a young couple with their daughter of around 4 years of age in the childrens' area of the 'rec. with the father using an infants' swing. As they had a dog, a Jack Russell, with them they were asked to take the dog outside that area, and would the father not use infants' equipment. The response was to refuse, and for the mother to swear at the lengthsman. Most people in the village approve of the lengthsman, and the work he does - but obviously some don't, presumably thinking that their dog should not have to be constrained. Dog faeces can blind children - that's why they're banned from the infants area, allowing dogs into there is both selfish and stupid. Equally the lengthsman is not employed to be abused and sworn at for simply asking people to observe sensible rules, rules which are there to protect our infants. If anyone could give a clue as to the identity of these people please let the Parish Council know, and the police and dog warden can be informed.

Re: Phoning doctors' surgery Cross Hills - had great difficulty lately, and heard of other people the same - reception informed me that the 08?? no. will soon be changing - thank goodness, but the 631813 is usually engaged, you are lucky to get a slot! However when waiting in the foyer realized how very busy they are, and on their screen over 220 appointments had been missed last month!

Pls. be vigilant - there seems to be a complete nutter around with a grudge against society in general - stealing parts from and damaging gates, bridges, fences - anything new looking! (Probably under the cover of the dark.)
Pls. report to Sgt.Paul Taylor.

Work is currently taking place installing stone steps on the Pennine Way between Ickornshaw & the main road, by (I think) NYCC. This will be a great improvement to this path which has been very difficult to use in wet weather due to water gushing down it. Thanks to any others who may have helped the 'campaign' to get this work done.
