Cowling Parish Council Village Survey June 2010

The parishioners of Cowling were asked, via a questionnaire in the newsletter, what they would like to see happen to the greenfield site, which lies to the south west of the Acre Mill development.

The voting forms were returned to a ballot box in the FM Café and this was unlocked at the July parish council meeting by our County Councillor. Many residents posted their forms directly to the parish clerk, actually paying the postage themselves.

The questionnaire asked if residents wanted affordable housing on this greenfield site in Cowling It also asked for the residents wishes for the site should they not want to see affordable homes on the site.

The response was 222 votes; 100 by post and 122 in the box. Some people had also provided comments to clarify their views.

These are the results:

Want affordable homes 9 (3 did not want them on this greenfield site)
Do not want affordable homes 213

Want allotments 94
Want other 1 (playground)
Want site to remain greenfield 118

Summary (rounded to nearest percent):

3% want affordable homes on the greenfield site
1% want affordable homes elsewhere in the village

96% do not want affordable homes in Cowling at all. Of these:

42% want allotments on the site
53% want the site to remain as greenfield
1% want the site to become a playground or amenity site

Some examples of comments which appeared on the forms:

“I would love to grow my own fruit and veg.”
“Plenty of houses to buy or rent in Cowling without building any more”
“I have my name on the waiting list for allotments but have been told I will be dead before I get one”
“There is no need for any more houses in the village as there are dozens for sale”
“I am a disabled lady with my husband and grandchild…I need a bungalow to live in”
“Suggest homes for single people, couples, house share – then families”
“There is a need for jobs rather than affordable housing”
“Please, please, please can we have more allotments!”
“Please can we have an allotment. Pretty please!”
“I do believe there should be affordable housing in our village but not using Greenfield sites”
“There are many terraced houses for sale in Cowling all very reasonably priced, they are not selling, why would anyone feel a need for more houses to be built??”

A few longer comments wanted to see bungalows for pensioners in the village but not on greenfield sites.
The Parish Council has informed Craven District Council of the result of this survey, and will discuss it at the next Parish Council meeting.

We were told today the sad news that Lillian Morrell Nee Bradley passed away on Monday 14th of June in Airedale Hospital after a very short illness.

Lillian was always very friendly and for someone of her age she thought nothing about climbing over the back wall of her house to head off for a good walk up and around the village.

It will be someone else to keep David Hoyle & Alec Starkey company!

RIP Lillian.

Funeral details to follow.

Pinnacle Productions Present.....
The world's worst drama group attempt to put on the cheap and cheerful thriller Murder at Checkmate Manor.
Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd May at 7.30 pm at St Andrews Hall, Cowling

The four ladies of The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society are a force to be reckoned with. The sheer scale of their ambition in mounting "Murder at Checkmate Manor" is only matched by their overwhelming confidence in their abilities to master all fourteen parts.

Even though Gordon, their stage manager, nobly steps into the breach at the last minute, their production is blighted by a series of disasters. The curse of Am Dram strikes…. The scenery falls down, sound effects add a strange note, cues are missed and those quick changes are just too slow.

Through this adversity the ladies soldier on, determined to provide a good evening out for their audience, but reveal more about the relationships between themselves than the plot.

The play is set in the drawing room of Checkmate Manor. The family gathers for the reading of the will of the late Sir Reginald Bishop. However, someone else has designs on the Checkmate millions, and will stop at nothing to get them. A string of grisly murders ensues, where everyone has a motive and everyone is a suspect in a classic whodunit farce.

Led by their indomitable Chair, Mrs Reece, the Ladies maintain the suspense right to the very end. And just to make the price of admission extra-specially worth it, they have even arranged not only a Fashion Show, but a who-dunnit quiz for all to enjoy.

“Be prepared for an onslaught of utter incompetence”

“Unmitigatedly awful”

“You need to have some pretty good performers to act that badly ….. performing multiple roles in a madcap series of changed costumes”

£5 for adults. £4 for concessions.

Tickets from Bay Horse Pub and Bains Shop, and from Julia on 07918 940 540 or on the door.

Keighley Cup Final

Cowling FC 3 Long Lee Juniors FC 2 AET
Full time score 1-1


Cowling secured their first Keighley Cup Final victory in 14 years with a late winner in extra time. Both teams started nervously and it took ten minutes before the game settled down. Cowling began to find some rhythm in their passing and created a couple of half chances. Winger Kyle Willis found his way past the Long Lee right back on several occasions and both strikers had opportunities to put the team in front , although the Long Lee defence and ‘keeper dealt well with the threat.

Long Lee came back into the game on the half hour with the midfield pairing finding space to create opportunities for the wide men and strikers. At one point the Cowling keeper James Metcalfe came off his line to gather the ball and mistook the rugby white markings on the pitch for the goal area and handled the ball outside the box. After a few nervous moments for the Cowling bench he was just shown a yellow card. Going in level at half time both teams could be pleased with the effort put in during the half.

The second half started brightly for Cowling, with the wide men finding a bit more time and space on the ball and the team playing some composed football through the middle. The Long Lee ‘keeper was by far the busier of the two number ones and pulled off a number of good saves. With 15 minutes remaining Cowling deservedly took the lead from a set piece. Adam Smith swung a ball in from the right and Steve Barker rose with a defender to get a decisive touch as both players made contact with the ball. As is often the way, an element of nervousness crept into Cowling’s game after going in front as Long Lee began to press for the equaliser. It arrived with seven minutes remaining, the Long Lee striker chasing down a ball and rifling it in from inside the box.

To Cowling’s credit the equaliser did not diminish their desire to win and they finished normal time again in the ascendency. With players tiring and going down with cramp it was always going to be a more open game in extra time. Both teams had opportunities in the first half of extra time and both keepers were forced to make fine saves.

Five minutes after the restart Cowling went ahead again after some sustained pressure. A ball back into the box from the left was met with a diving header by Adam Smith, Kyle Willis getting the final touch on the line to score. Almost immediately after taking the lead, Cowling were pegged back to 2-2 by a great turn and shot from the edge of the box by the Long Lee striker. Again the response from the Cowling players was excellent and runs from Tom Sowerbutts and the tireless Ali McEwen almost resulted in goals. With five minutes remaining substitute Lee Barker was brought down just outside the area. Adam Smith’s curled free kick cannoned off the underside of the bar and was rammed home by Jody Proctor. Cowling players Proctor, Smith and Mark Adams were all in the squad that won the Keighley Cup in 1996 and it was particularly special for Proctor to score the winner on Monday as he had missed the final in ‘96 through injury. The final five minutes were nervy as Cowling held on for the win and great celebrations greeted the final whistle. Cowling skipper James Complin lifted the trophy in front of a big crowd of Cowling supporters

The entire Cowling team deserve great credit for the performance and Cowling’s man of the match award went to Tom Sowerbutts for a fantastic display in the centre of the park.

We are back but our fingers are frozen to our keyboards!

Happy New Year to all and we really do hope that 2010 will be a very good year!

Even if we are starting it in the coldest weather I can remember for a long time but the snow does look lovely when you look up over to Cowling Hill and all the dry stone walls are criss crossing what are now pure white fields that looks like the perfect winter scene! Wonderful!
And the South Craven School children were given an extra 4 days off school. "E when I was a kid" comes to mind.

Photos from in and around the village are always welcome. So this time my thanks go to Tim Abbott for sending me the image that we are using for the new main banner on the site!

In the next couple of weeks we are hoping to introduce new face to the Cowlingweb family. A new admin for the message board.
It will be a name and face that many people will already know and I hope she will enjoy helping us out as much as we are looking forward to her joining us in keeping the site up to date and as relevant to the village as possible.

Cowlingweb is FREE and for that reason we do not chase information to go on it. If a village events is not publicised on here it is simple due to the organisers not getting in touch or supplying us with the event details.

So that is it. The start of a New Year. Lets all wait and see what 2010 brings!
But remember we have had snow for the past 3 year now!

It’s been a fun and very rewarding journey to get Cowlingweb to where is it today and along the way we have met some really nice people some who have become really good friends.

But time moves on and time is something we are finding ourselves with less and less these days so we need help to keep the website running on a day to day basis.

We are looking for someone to admin the message board and also people to admin and moderate a forum that has been in the background of the site for over a year now but was never implemented into the website.

So if you feel you can spare a couple of hours a week and want to help keep the website moving forward we would like to hear from you.
