How many Royal Oaks?

The Royal Oak pub in Cossington

Of course, the pub at the heart of Cossington is one Royal Oak. But is it the only one? That was one of the questions set in a walking treasure around the village.

Thirteen members and guests spent about 90 minutes seeking clues to the 41 questions. Over a delicious meal in the pub garden, the winner was unveiled… President Kartar Singh Bring.

In truth, he had received a lot of help from his partner, Rotarian Norman, visiting from Corby.

The event was designed to be for fun, but it also made £30 for Rotary good causes yet to be identified.

The bad news is that the President’s Afternoon, which was to have been held in a member’s garden, to allow members to mix in a socially-distanced way, was postponed because there is a 90 per cent chance of heavy rain for Sunday.
