A newsletter had been prepared for all those who attended laying out the activities over the last year and also plans for the year ahead. Liz Kwantes, Chairman of the Cookham Youth Project. talked about the success of the trip to France in conjunction with Cookham Twinning last May and said that it was planned to invite the French over for a return trip at Easter 2001. She also said that the Youth Project was hoping to organise a skateboarding day for the young people after the successful event during the Cookham Millennium Celebrations in July.

PC Les Bullion spoke about how much the Cookham Youth Project had reduced petty crime and anti-social behaviour in Cookham. He said that since the introduction of the Youth project this sort of crime in the Cookham area had been reduced by 80%, thus making Cookham one of the safest places to live in, in the Thames Valley area. He said that most police would give their eye teeth to be able to work in such here.
