Like many organisations our activities have been disrupted by the Covid regulations but subject to these being relaxed we plan to resume meetings from August at our regular venue of Winter Hill Golf Club, Cookham, on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the Month. Various other activities are planned for the remaining Wednesdays and these will be 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 2021/22, Paul Ovstedal, 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.
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
Our major fund raising event for 2021, the "Cookham Regatta", took place on Saturday 4th September and was a great success. Some pictures will be found under the "what we do tab" - (scroll down and select Cookham Regatta). Following the cancellation of the event in 2020, it was great to see the crowds return in force. The event raised funds for several charities, including Accesible Boating. For more information visit http://www.cookhamregatta.org.uk/ .
Next year the Regatta will be held on 3rd September 2022
