A COOKHAM-based media group celebrates its first birthday this month after a hugely successful first year.

The Media Hub was set up by Cookham based journalists Sarah Parfitt and Sarah Rodi to help media professionals network.

Ms Parfitt said: "When Sarah and I launched the monthly gatherings, we had no idea what kind of response we would get.

"We have now welcomed more than 50 media professionals to our meetings, which is fantastic.’ The celebrations will take place at 8pm on Thursday 19th June in the Garden Room at the Bel & the Dragon on Cookham High Street.

The birthday celebration will kick-off with a presentation by writer, broadcaster and film-maker Angela Robson and photographer and film-maker Mike Goldwater about Ethiopia 30 years since the famine.

The Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, Richard Kellaway, will also be making an appearance.

Media Hub meetings take place quarterly. The next two meetings will be at 8pm on 11th September and 27th November at the Bel & the Dragon.

Any media professional is welcome to come along to the next event. Register on our Facebook Media Hub page, or by calling Sarah Parfitt on 07900 411 715.
