We are now back and recovering from our annual trip to the Cook Islands and to digging up more village history. I now go back some 83 years when I started school at Holy Trinity and my first teacher a Miss Collins. Also recalling some of those who attended my class during that period. Yes you may find your mother or father or grand parents mentioned here:

So turn up your sound, you may learn a little family history.

Clearly an excellent step in the right direction for vulnerable folk.
But for me it begs the question re progress on rough sleepers in Windsor.

A new facility helping people supported by the council move towards independent living will welcome its first residents.

Braywick Lodge will house four people and is designed to help residents transition to independent living from more comprehensively supported accommodation.

The first four residents are due to move into the self-contained property next week.

Cllr Ross McWilliams, principal member for housing and communications, said: “We are committed to helping residents lead fulfilling and independent lives.

“There are a host of support services offered in the borough to help residents get back on their feet. Braywick Lodge will offer those residents who have moved from John West House an opportunity to live in a more independent setting with support before successfully managing a tenancy elsewhere.

“By utilising the support services we commission residents needing help will be supported all the way from first arriving in our emergency night shelter John West House, into Braywick Lodge and then transitioning into a more permanent home.

“Residents will be encouraged to live more independently and offered support including help finding employment and working towards more permanent housing.”

Braywick Lodge will be used to support any residents who would benefit from it as they continue their journey to independent living.

Royal Borough officers treat each housing case individually and will always offer support appropriate to a resident’s needs.

The council will work with Open4You to deliver the service at Braywick Lodge.

David Haugh, managing director of Open4You, said: “We look forward to welcoming the first residents into Braywick Lodge and helping them continue the journey towards more independent living.

“By working with the Royal Borough we aim to provide an excellent service.”

Has anyone else noticed the increase in traffic on the A404, on the approach to the Handycross roundabout from Marlow, over the last 6months?

From the Maidenhead Heritage Centre)

We encourage you to tune in to the Breakfast Show (7am to 10am) on BBC Radio Berkshire this coming Thursday 18 January, when the future of the Heritage Centre and the regeneration of Maidenhead will be discussed in between the news, the traffic and the music.   Even more important are two days of 'consultation' exhibition on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 January about the Borough's plans for the York Road area, which promise to deliver a "stunning new cultural quarter" but have little or no reference to the Heritage Centre or long anticipated improvements to the Desborough Theatre.  The exhibition will be in an empty shop unit in the Nicholson’s Centre (10am-5pm both days) and you will be asked to leave your comments on the proposals.  Please please do so, making the case for a bigger better Heritage Centre as part of the redevelopment.  If you can't get along, you can see artists impressions by going to

I know it's a bit early to talk about Christmas cards but now is a good time to get your cameras ready for action. Why? With a mini ice age forecast, well a cold snap anyway, the next few weeks may give you the chance to snap a wintery Cookham view or two that will be perfect for our cards.

Happy snapping!

Now we get to show you what the GoPro 5 black sees when aloft with the Karma Drone. The GoPro 6 black camera is even better I am told. Please excuse the whistle picked up during the voice over. So turn up your sound.

Exactly Paris - WAS a nice village.

I wonder if there is a way to find out who is approving / voting and abstaining to swing the votes for such changes in cookham?

I really like looking through the published Cookham books to see what it was once like... I wonder if the next generation will also be looking back and thinking WTF happened ??

What is going on with all this massive changes in the Cookhams ? Whats happened to the village design statement that is allowing the charm of the 'Cookhams' to be eroded at every corner !

I can not believe the charm of the area is being physically stamped out ! Look at the lovely Huntsmans House GONE ! Another VERY MOCK Georgian building being slapped up in its place.

I understand at times things need to change, but Woodlands Farm was a massive corner stone for Cookham Dean, I'm afraid its no longer such a desirable place to want to be.

What is it with our Cllrs ?

And lastly - what the heck has happened to the 'pound' in Cookham.... the 'sleeping police men' are now tarmac, I thought this was a conservation area ?

Cant wait to retire to a real village - at least the Cotswolds  have the right idea... if your going to build, at least make it fit in within the area. Rant over.
