VILLAGE HALL FOR HIRE

OPEN GARDENS WINNER

Mr. John Summerford at Myrtle Cottage was the winner of the Cottesbrooke Village Gardens open Competition this year. It was chosen for the lovely colours and beauty combined with his great selection of plants of different shapes and sizes. Usually the Prize goes to Derek and Yvonne Daw, or their neighbours, Joyce and Eric Wright who both have beautiful gardens; so it was good to have a new rival at the other end of the village. It was a close-run decision!  Congratulations to Mr. John Summerford.

VILLAGE FETE

No matter that the forecast said ‘rain’; the sun shone brightly for the Fete! Teenagers were among the new stall holders displaying organic ‘BeeFayre’ Products  www.beefayre.com; original designed greeting cards, lavender posies and sachets. Handmade pottery was displayed on another stall.

BRIC A BRAC – WHITE ELEPHANT – PRE-LOVED

Whatever you like to call it this is a popular stall, always the first stall that people rush to and this year was no exception. What a bumper stall with a marvellous selection of goods on offer ranging from a bicycle to armchairs, a mirror to a golf car, and even a dining table, and plenty of items in between. It is amazing what people manage to fit into cars when they find a bargain!!!!

Mark and Debbie Harris provided a Big Red Tractor which was on display at the entrance to the Fete. Visitors were allowed to climb up into the cab – some of them were assisted .

FIRE ENGINE AND CREW VISIT TO COTTESBROOKE

The fire engine and crew from Guilsborough Fire Station visited the village hall playing field on Thursday 10th August for a demonstration and discussion for the children living in the village. They were allowed to use the fire hose and climb into the driver’s seat of the fire engine. The children were given activity and story books by one of the crew. The Estate farm manager Henry Clemens and his wife welcomed visitors. New resident Thomas Gregory, general manager of the Windhover in Kingsthorpe, made tea and coffee, and his wife Gemma, who is  Marketing Planning Manager at KCI in Kettering, helped serve drinks and biscuits to the children.  A very big thank you to Chris Mayer for organising the visit.
