In January 2018, Cooke & Arkwright consultant and former Chairman, Roger Thomas, took part as one of the guns in the Cocker Spaniel Championship at Sandringham, by kind invitation from Her Majesty The Queen. The two day event was hosted on the Wolferton beat, part of the Estate.

Other guns included Cooke & Arkwright client Nick Williams, Sir Gareth Edwards, Simon Hickling (Sandringham Land Agent), Peter Fawcett, Manager of Sheik Al Maktoum’s grouse moors in Durham, and Geoff Garrod, Headkeeper of The Audley End Estate.
