Welcome to Cookham Bridge Rotary Club
We normally meet Wednesday evenings at Winter Hill Golf Club, Cookham, but currently meetings are suspended and we maintain contact electronically.
When things get back to normal (!) Club meetings will start at 7:30 pm but our President for 2020/21, Derek Tyler, looks forward to welcoming visitors from 7:00 onwards in the bar and it is a good chance to meet other members.
We are always looking for new members, young or old, of any background and of any vocation. We offer the opportunity for membership of a relaxed and friendly local club with international connections and the chance to put something back into the local community. Our weekly meetings typically include a drink, a meal and a chat plus a bit of Club business and some entertainment - a guest speaker for instance.
We are not at all rigid in our ways and fresh views are always welcome. If you are interested why not come along and see what goes on and join us for a typical evening. You can contact us using this link.
Please note, in the interest of personal privacy, enquiries are not stored on the database, but may be retained by the recipient of your enquiry until the query is resoved. They will subsequently be deleted and not shared with any third party.
Cookham bridge spans the river boundary between the surrounding villages in Berkshire and Buckinghamshire from which we draw our support and our members. Cookham is a charming old Thames-side village with lots to see and do, a host of Pubs for a drink, a selection of restaurants from simple to sophisticated and some exquisite small shops. The world famous artist Stanley Spencer gallery is in Cookham High Street. For more information on Cookham visit www.cookham.com .
Just across the river are the villages of Bourne End and Flackwell Heath with good shopping facilities and restaurants. To view a brochure about the Club click on this link
Our major fund raising event for 2019, the "Cookham Regatta", took place on Saturday 7th September and was a great success. Some pictures will be found under the "what we do tab" - (scroll down and select Cookham Regatta). For more information visit http://www.cookhamregatta.org.uk/ or click here for Regatta 2019 Pictures. This year (2020) the regatta was planned for September 5th, but in view of uncertainties over the Covid-19 limitations we have regretfully had to cancel the event but hope to be back in 2021 on Saturday 4th September.
Cookham Bridge Rotary Club welcomes working working with Business Communities and Local Companies to support local community needs and to give member businesses recognition for their contributions. For more details of the scheme, click here.
