The finality of summer was vividly pronounced on Tuesday 14th August by a large group of House Martins, preparing to migrate, swooping down the side of our house, cascading like a waterfall and rising like surf time and time again. At 6:50 pm they were all gone. What a strange sensation it was to stand looking through our glass doors. It was like being on the underside of a “waterfall” of House Martins.  Chris Utley


Native American Wisdom

From father to son, I am poor and naked but I am the chief of the Nation. We do not want riches but we do want to train our children right. Riches would do no good, we could not take them with us to the other world.

We do not want riches we want peace and love.

Joanne Tromans & Dylan Hartley were married at All Saint Church Cottesbrooke on Saturday the 7th of July by our new Vicar the Rev. Allison Twigg.



Patience, perseverance and a positive attitude is a trait of Cottesbrooke villagers.

Thank you to all of you who helped in the setting up in the drizzle and to all of you who attended. Teas and cakes were exceedingly popular that day!

A big thank you goes to the Macdonald Buchanan family for allowing the village to use the gardens of Cottesbrooke Hall for the Fete.  

Children from the village helped to sort the toys for the stall.

The inaugural Cottesbrooke Produce Show was held by the Village Hall Committee on Saturday 8th September in the Village Hall.

Thirty seven exhibitors entered 123 exhibits in 25 classes! The best in show award, sponsored by Ensase Consultants, was won by Julie Westaway for her collection of garden produce.

The Village Hall Committee would like to thank all those that entered, printed show schedules, helped with the teas, provided cakes, the auctioneer, those that sold plants and the five judges. £453 pounds was raised towards the upkeep of the hall.
