The shops of Cookham Village were again open on Sunday afternoon 14 December for their special Christmas Charity afternoon to help raise money for local good causes.  This year it was Elizabeth House and the Thames Valley Air Ambulance Service. For the last few years the event had been masterminded and organised by Alison Parry of Kid 2 Kid, but now Alison has left Kid2Kid, Catherine Forsyth of Toy Heaven stepped into the breach. Theresa May MP opened the afternoon and was presented with an enormous bunch of flowers.

The festivities were opened at 2.00pm and these were followed by seasonal entertainment, carol singing, a wind band, a fair organ and a clown entertainer, plus a Victorian carousel for the children.  There were stalls selling  Cookham Society Christmas Cards, the Thames Valley Hospice had a tombola and the RNLI were selling cards and gifts. 

Is it cold up there?

There was also lots to eat, hot chestnuts were on sale, the 1st Cookham Scouts had a barbecue and there was mulled wine and mince pies at Mrs Bond's. 

Congratulations to Catherine for all her hard work in making the afternoon so succesful.
