COOKHAM DEAN – BOXING DAY GAMES


The annual Boxing Day Games will be staged this year on Saturday 26 December.  The Games, which start at 10.00 am and last for about 2 hours, will take place on the old cricket common in Cookham Dean.  Organised by local charity fund raisers, the Kaffirs of Cookham Dean, the event will consist of five silly games and a tug-of-war.  The games will conclude with the ever popular obstacle race but the other four are kept secret until the day and changed annually.

Teams consist of eight people and must be mixed with at least two being a different sex from the remainder.  The games are normally supported by upwards of a dozen teams (we have a limit of 16) representing pubs, clubs and groups of local residents.  Entries can only be made on the day and cost just £30 per team.  The winners will take home the prestigious 'loo seat' trophy which carries shields representing the winners over all the years since 1978.  There is a separate ' loo lid' trophy for the tug-of-war. Hot and cold drinks will be available to sustain both competitors and spectators.


Organiser, Peter Austen, commented, "We are looking forward to another exciting and entertaining games fought in their normal highly competitive but not too serious fashion.  The games will go on, whatever the weather!".  If you would like more information give Peter a call on 01628 482201.
