James, you will be pleased to hear that the Parish Council purchased a bicycle for Cookham's local Bobby a while back. Our one Cookham Bobby now covers a huge area including Hurley and Burchetts Green, although he has help from some PCSOs.

Thank you for the information Roger. Is it one of those super-duper mountain bikes? He would need it to make a dash from the Olde Bell at Hurley to an incident in Cookham. My word that is progress! Maybe there should be a hill climb contest on mountain bikes for the TVPF up through Quarry Woods. That would certainly draw a good crowd.

We now switch to a country sport that has been around for years, and as you will see by my photo that the Eton College Beagle Pack is still going strong. Yes hunting with dogs has been around for a long time. Even Cookham Dean was a home ti a Staghound Pack. Hence the name Kennel Lane.

Beagles are the dog breed most often used in animal testing, due to their size and passive nature. Of the 8,018 dogs used in testing in the UK in 2004, 7,799 were Beagles (97.3%).[60] In the UK, the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 gave special status to primates, equids, cats and dogs and in 2005 the Animal Procedures Committee (set up by the act) ruled that testing on mice was preferable, even though a greater number of individual animals were involved.[61] In 2005 Beagles were involved in less than 0.3% of the total experiments on animals in the UK, but of the 7670 experiments performed on dogs 7406 involved Beagles (96.6%).[62] Most dogs are bred specifically for the purpose, by companies such as Harlan. In the UK companies breeding animals for research must be licensed under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act

So Wannabe, are Rats, Mice, and Goats. So what has that got to do with history, and what the Beagle was originally bred for.

This next blog I felt I had to write in support of those concerned villagers on the state of the River Thames, and its banks and towpaths. There aws a time when The Thames Conservancy meant conservation and were very much into Preventative Maintenance.

James, since when has relevance to the topic stopped you from posting your opinions or comments?

Because my dear Simes the one thing that you all overlook. I and my family have had a long association with the village. That is fact that you can't dispute. That is whyI care.

James, it's good to hear that your family have long associations with the village, but does that give you the right to post responses that are not relevant to the topic? Your history & food blogs are no doubt interesting to many of the people who visit Cookham.com & you have threads running that direct people to them, I don't think it's appropriate that you then try to hijack other threads as well.

I am not hi-jacking the threads as you say. I am concerned that the village is losing its identity, what with the pressure of more housing estates and the like. I am trying to protect the heritage of the Cookham's.

I'm with you Simes and most of the other posters on here. Hijacker Hatch has a good ring to it.

Sorry James, but I fail to see how directing people to your grilled halibut or Yinnie Lin's Stir Fried Veg recipes when we're having a good discussion on the pros & cons of local restaurants is going to protect the heritage of Cookham.
