COWLING GALA PHOTO 1967/8 (NOT 1960 as caption says). This is a long shot ... but if you put in a search for Cowling Gala on old photos gallery you should get the first photo which is a very interesting Gala crowd, and on a closer look the Gala Queen's tableau says 1967/8, also there are other clues about the year.... I am now told the man at the front next to Maurice Cleaver was a Mr. Parker of West View who was caretaker of the rec. ground at that time - he is holding a cine camera - can anyone trace him or his relatives please?

I was going to put up details of how to improve traffic conditions in the village. But it seems you can't post even governmental website addresses here.

So I won't bother trying.

Why have the village morons trashed the seat that was dedicated to Rufus and Majorie Benson at the top of the recreation ground, could one of them tell me?

How long do we have to put up with the ANTI SOCIAL behavior of the local youths. Since the building of the village hall it has become a mecca for local kids to run a muck. Over the past year residents have been forced to call the police on many occasions to complain of anti social behavior with no action being taken. Today we have woken to find our fence damaged, 2litr bottle of coke and something (vodka?), empty cans thrown in the garden. Milk bottles from the playschool waiting for collection (outside the village hall) have been smashed in the street, and the list just goes on. As a minimum close circuit cameras need to be installed to prevent this escallating before any more serious damage is caused

Don't miss the Winter Clearance sale at St Andrews, Walton Street on Saturday 13th April 10 - 12 noon and Thursday 18th April 2 - 4 pm. Everything will be half price. Come and pick yourself a bargain! Remember we can take stained, torn and shabby items. It would be helpful if they were in a bag clearly marked for recycling. Donations of good quality clothing, bric-a-brac and toys are always welcome as stocks are changing regularly. We serve teas/coffees and usually have home baking to sell. We have had two very successful months with thanks to all who have donated and helped in any way.

Snowden Memorial needs pointing. There are grants available from " Sharing heritage" ( Micheal Wood talked about it on BBC radio 4. It is part of our heritage. Could the Parish Council apply for this Joan?
QUOTE :
Sharing Heritage is a new funding programme to help people across the UK explore, conserve and share all aspects of the history and character of their local area.

With a commitment from HLF of £3m each year, grants between £3,000 and £10,000 will now be available to groups who want to discover their local heritage.

Projects are expected to cover, --- conserving sites or items of local significance, ---END QUOTE
So that sounds like the Snowden Memorial is elligible

I AM FURIOUS!!! Is anything going to be done about the long standing problem of cars parking up past the school on Gill Lane? I was narrowly missed by a truck going far too fast while trying to pass a large black 4x4 badly parked on the blind bend just above the school....it was quite a frightening experience I can tell you!! There are no footpaths along there, and i'm sure it's only a matter of time before someone is seriously hurt or worse...it could be YOUR CHILD walking to or from school....
Teachers need to park their cars, so why doesn't the school provide space? Haven't they got enough land that could be made into a car park? Something should be done pretty sharpish before there is a nasty accident.

Don't be ripped off by phoning the Doctors at Crosshills Heath Centre using their 08444 number - its costly!
Calls to the Doctors 0844 number cost 6p connection charge + 5p per minute. A three minute call would cost 21p. If the receptionist puts you on hold for 5 minutes then that's an extra 25p
There is a way round this, I used SAYNOTO0870.COM which has provided me with a local number you can use which is 631813 !

Fibre Optic is coming to Cowling! I will post the email below, sent to me after I made enquiries.

Dear Mr Cooke,



Thank you for contacting us about fibre broadband. You are connected to cross hills exchange cabinet MY/CSH 3.

This cabinet is currently in the build phase of being upgraded to fibre broadband. We are currently expecting this cabinet to go live to accept orders for fibre broadband in May.

However, please be aware that unknown engineering difficulties or severe weather could delay this date.



Regards

Coronation Shelter.
Yes, it may look a bit dogeared and may need some attention as regards paint and pebble dashing, but the basic structure appears sound enough....(built with engineering bricks I think) please don't knock it down!! It is a godsend to us who have to rely on shank's pony to get to and from the village or bus stop and it's a great resting place for tired legs when carting heavy shopping bags home up that long drag of a hill. Many a time it has saved me from getting soaked to the skin when caught in a heavy downpour of which there are many in this neck of the woods! I have seen lots of ramblers shelter there from the wind and rain, and also to rest a while and eat their sandwiches. Despite it's scruffiness it has it's uses, so please let us keep our shelter.

Does anyone know what the digger's doing in the field at the end of Acre Road? The site's been cleared and the digger's been working there all week, I've checked with CDC and there's no planning consent for the houses there....could the delightful Mr Verity be up to his old tricks again??

We have no need for new house in Cowling and Glusburn because within this area there are 68 empty houses.

Evidence: Craven District Council- Below is the e-mail from Deborah Davies The Revenues, Benefits and Customer Services Manager of CDC, sent, 14th February 2013. CDC does not have an “ Empty Houses” officer.

“Our council tax definition of empty is:- houses empty for 6 months or more, and not qualifying for any other class of exemption (eg owner being in residential care / recently deceased) – according to this definition there are 39 in Glusburn and 29 in Cowling.”

I am researching our family history, my great grandfather Watson Wilkinson moved
from Cowling to farm at Annis Hill Minrow. His parents John and Martha nee Whitaker
are listed on census returns as born in Cowling in 1812. They farmed at Beushaw well. I have found a Baptism record for Martha at Ikornshaw chapel but can not find a
baptismal record for John can anyone help please?
Also on following our family line through various farms in the Milnrow area I was
surprised to find that many of the farms were tenanted by migrants from the Cowling
area can anyone suggest why.

Does anyone know if double yellow lines are going to be put on the bottom of Acre Road? Since the village hall was opened, the number of cars parking on the corner and over the tactile paving/dropped kerbs has increased. I have witnessed a number of near mises with cars turning in coming head on with others going down Acre Road to the main road - usually the one on the main road nearly getting hit from behind. A bit of sensible parking would help - often there are no cars in the car park at the back but they are all lined up down the road, surely just keeping the crossing point clear will also keep the corner clear?!

You would have thought that whoever closed Winkholme would have made sure that Nan Scar was cleared but I suppose that's too much to expect from the council. Why is it that they always put numpties in charge?

I do hope that a way will be found to re-open the toilets on the main road corner.
What a frustrating waste, to have them closed.
As a matter of interest, who owns them, & who owns the land they stand on, if different??
And who owns the other closed toilets, those on the Pennine Way behind the old chapel?
