Like many organisations our activities have been disrupted by the Covid regulations but we have recently resumed meetings at our regular venue of Winter Hill Golf Club, Cookham, on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Wednesdays of the Month. Various activities are planned for the Wednesdays, and these are shown under the 'Happening Soon' heading alongside or below. If you are interested in attending any of these events contact us using the link below.
Our Wedesday meetings at Winter Hill start at 7:30 pm but our President for 2022/23, John Fairlie, looks forward to welcoming visitors from 7:00 onwards in the bar, and it is also a good chance to meet other members and to find out more about the Rotary movement.
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 regular 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. If you wish to join us for dinner our deadline for catering is the Friday before the meeting. (by 12:00 noon).
Cookham bridge spans the river boundary between the surrounding villages in Berkshire and Buckinghamshire (historically Wessex and Mercia) from which we draw our support and many of 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. Recorded in the Doomsday Book (1068) as 'Cocheham' the stone church of Holy Trinity may date from 750 AD. Recently the remains of an 8th Century monastery have been excavated by archaeologists from the University of Reading in the grounds of the church. 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
Coming Events 2022/23
Our major fund raising event for 2022, the "Cookham Fun Regatta", took place on Saturday 3rd September 2022 and was a great success. Many thanks to all those who attended. The event raised funds for several charities, including Thames Valley Adventure Playground. It also provided an opportunity to raise funds for Ukrainian refuges.
