Dear Mr Hyde,


I am writing to you regards to a request.


My name is Christie Ellis and I work for The Odney Club, which is based in Cookham, Berkshire. 

This year we are celebrating 90 years at Odney and we are looking to have a fun day where the public and Partners of the John Lewis Partnership can explore our grounds (120 acres) and learn more of the history of the club.














This is a photo of The Odney Club -

The Odney Club is fine 18th Century country house which is now used a private hotel for Partners of The John Lewis Partnership.


The Odney club has so much history, including the tenancy during 1911 of late Colonel Frances Ricardo who was at the time,  the High Sheriff of Berkshire. Colonel Frances Ricardo was also the first car owner of our village, Cookham. He owned a Yellow Rolls-Royce. 


As we want to celebrate the past 90 years, we are really interested in inviting vintage car owners to showcase their cars on our property. As your website features cars from 1903 - 1963 I thought you were a perfect person for me to contact.


We are currently working on a date this summer which is yet to be confirmed, however, I am wondering if you or anybody you know would be interested in showcasing their car? We will be open to the public on the day and closed to only private members in the evening.


I look forward to hearing from you.


Kind Regards,

Christie Ellis Conference & Events Coordinator, The Odney Club.
