What we're about
Upcoming events (2)
Our environment matters. Come along to this event to discover how you can do more for it. Cookham residents are already taking a lead in making a difference for our wildlife. Around 20 WildCookham projects are encouraging more pollination, better habitats and more awareness. We need to do more. Come along to Moor Hall to learn how you or your community group can take part. Everyone has something to offer - all skills are useful to us - so please invite your friends, family and neighbours to make Cookham a community where all life matters. We're excited to be announcing a new initiative in Cookham Rise - Bee-Friendly - which we're hoping will become an annual scheme that will encompass the whole of the village in years to come! There will be a chance to meet those already volunteering, so don't be backward in coming forward - we need more volunteers! Take a look at this film that shows the difference our volunteers have made in 2019 at the Harris Woodbridge Nature Reserve. //www.youtube.com/watch?v=viqeg2xQX7Q As ever, this event is free of charge but we will be collecting donations. (£3 per person suggested).
