Henley Royal Regatta

Henley Royal Regatta is staged annually in the Parish of Remenham and is possibly the most famous rowing event in the world. The Royal Regatta is renowned for its exciting racing, as well as being a highlight of the British summer season.

Crews and visitors come from far and wide to enjoy the spectacle that takes place on one of the most beautiful stretches of the River Thames, a tradition that dates back to 1839.

The Regatta Course starts at Temple Island which is graced with a delightful Georgian folly. This idyllic venue is available for hire during the Regatta and throughout the year.

For more information about Henley Royal Regatta and Temple Island, please visit the  HRR website.

Henley Cricket Club - The Brakspear Ground

The first recorded mention of cricket in Henley is of a match between Mr Mathew Slaughter and his ten sons of Peppard who played a Henley side on August 6th 1766. The prize of eleven pairs of gloves, donated by the landlord of the Plough Inn, Shiplake, plus 11 guineas, was won by Henley.

Today's club dates from 1886 when two Brakspear brothers formed a club for 'gentlemen' that played on Butler's field. A Town club, formed some 20 years later, played at the current Brakspear ground. The two clubs amalgamated in the 70's and now fields four Saturday league sides, Sunday and Occasionals sides, plus a 220 strong junior section.

In the past ten years the Club has bought the ground and built a new pavilion and once loans are paid off the ground will be placed in trust to ensure that it stays a sporting facility for Henley in perpetuity.

For more information about the Club, or how to hire the pavilion visit the HCC

Leander Club

Founded in 1818 Leander Club is the most historic, successful and prestigious rowing club in the world. The club's athletes, who include such sporting legends as Sir Steve Redgrave and Sir Matthew Pinsent, have won more Olympic medals than any other single-sport club in the world – a tally which now stands at 112 following the success of the London Games.

Our clubhouse is not only spiritual home to more than 3,500 Members worldwide – it is also a distinctive hotel, with fine dining and conference facilities which may be booked by non-Members, who thereby play their own part in placing the Club's athletes onto the podium at the next major rowing event.

Remenham Women's Institute

“What an eye opener”!

 A view from a young member who recently joined her local WI “not at all what I expected”

The WI is not just a monthly meeting with a cup of tea. It is a forward looking organisation with something for everyone. It is the opportunity to share knowledge with other women; come together socially; and learn new skills. There will always be jam making but you will also find music, creative writing, theatre, sports, photography and lots more.

The WI is also a campaigning organisation. This year our main objective has been to increase awareness of the importance of organ donation and this follow other campaigns to increase the number of midwives, human trafficking and saving our bees.

In fact the WI is what you make of it – why not give it try.

Remenham WI meets on the second Monday of each month at 2.30pm in Remenham Parish Hall. Do come along – we’d love to see you.

The RAG Team

RAG stands for Remenham Amateur Gardening. It is the idea of Linda Ashwell, who lives on Remenham Hill - and its aim is to improve the look of the bare verges and the rural environment in the community. RAG has generated the support of a team of volunteers who gave up their time, last autumn, to plant bulbs in grass verges that were previously rather bare.

The result so far is evident and once more approvals are given then further works can be undertaken.
