COOKHAM PARISH COUNCIL
Could you spare a few hours to help keep Cookham moving during the next flood emergency?
The Parish Council are currently updating the Community Flood Plan. It has now been agreed that when all three access roads into Cookham village are closed, The Causeway will be opened to allow supervised access for pedestrians and vehicles to enter and leave the village.
Access Operation will be managed by RBWM using Amey, their Highways
part of the Parish Councilís commitment to facilitate this operation, we
are hoping to build a roster of volunteers who can join Councillors in
providing support to RBWM and Amey in maintaining this vital service for
residents and businesses. The Odney Club and Chartered Institute of
Marketing have also committed to providing assistance by their staff when
role of the Community Volunteers will mainly
be to answer questions from the public e.g. about opening times, shuttle
bus services and inform the public on operating procedures. Volunteers
will also guide pedestrians swiftly across The Causeway at the appropriate
times and should therefore be people who are comfortable dealing with the
public and happy to work outside, even in cold and inclement weather.
community volunteers will be given a one hour training course.
will be an informal meeting during September when more specific details of
the areas of activity will be explained.
you would be interested in more information or would like to add your name
to the list of Community Volunteers, please contact the Clerk on 01628
