COWBIT has netted a King’s ransom for the village’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Ashley King, of Ashley King Developments, presented a cheque for £1,000 to the Cowbit Jubilee committee on Thursday.

Youngsters from St Mary’s Primary School went along to fly the flag for the event, along with members of one of the attractions, the Knights of Skirbeck, and Trevor Tyrrell who will be leading a 21-punt gun salute.

Committee chairman Matt Yates said: “I would like to thank Mr King for his very generous offer. It will help us make this year’s jubilee the village’s best yet.”

The celebrations take place in Cowbit Playing Field on June 2.
