The Cockwood Cockleshell Mariners is a social group dedicated to entertaining the Cockwood Community.

The Mariners runs a variety of events throughout the year, generally one a month, to enhance the community enjoyment of all those living in our special village. See the 'What's on' calendar for forthcoming dates.

The activities widely range from children’s events such as the Easter Egg Hunt, through to a formal Christmas Dinner & Dance. Skittles and Bangers & Mash evenings and the hugely enjoyable Safari Suppers are also organised. The highlight of past calendars has been the Summer Mudfest, which close-on 500 people have attended.

Most events are either minimally priced or some are free.

A Committee organises the events but we are always looking for more helpers, event ideas and indeed more local people to join the (free) membership.

We also extend a special invitation to anyone not yet a member, would like to participate in our events or are new to the area around Cockwood, Cofton, Middlewood and Westwood. We would be pleased for you to be part of our social community. To join send an email to
