Welcome to Cookham Bridge Rotary Club
We meet Wednesday evenings at Winter Hill Golf Club, Cookham, but check also the programme tab for special events. Normal Club meetings currently start at 7:30 pm but our President, Ron Phelps, always looks forward to welcoming our 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 tyical evening. You can contact us using this link.

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
