Platinum Jubilee

The Cottesbrooke Village Hall Committee alongside a group of enthusiastic volunteers are working to plan a fantastic event in celebration of HRH Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee on Sunday, 5th June.

Our celebrations will take place at the Village Hall from 4:30-8:30pm. All residents and their families are welcome. Further details will be posted through letterboxes in the upcoming weeks, so do keep an eye out!

If you would like to help out on the day, or if you have some festive red, white and blue or Union Jack bunting we could borrow (the more bunting the better!), we would love to hear from you.

The Greedy Squirrel

There are an estimated 2.7 million Grey Squirrels in the UK and this is one that visits Steve Nicholas’s garden bird feeders. They can provide great entertainment, though it is well-known that these animals, a non-native species, have pushed the Red Squirrel to small enclaves around the country.

It is not surprising that the grey squirrel likes our bird feeders as their food of choice includes nuts and seeds, and the easier to get at them, the better.

Grey squirrels like to bury their food for later and have been observed pretending to do this to fool other squirrels that may be watching!
