Windsor’s summer fair drew more than 1,000 people to Alexandra Gardens – with the event raising £5,000 for good causes.

The annual event, organised by the Windsor and Eton Rotary Club, has been a fixture in the town for more than 40 years – with the famous duck race a much-loved highlight.

Slough Observer:

And this year’s fair, on Saturday (June 29), was no different, with 1,500 people flocking to Alexandra Gardens to enjoy the day.

Revellers had the chance to browse stalls in the market area, while the main arena featured local acts and schools performing throughout the day.

The Bandstand hosted a variety of musicians, including the Bagshot Concert band.

There was also plenty of food on offer, including the Rotary run barbecue, vegan food, a licensed bar and tea and sandwiches provided by the scouts.

The duck race was, once again, a major attraction, with total of 200 plastic ducks released into the river to see which one would cross the line first, in a tradition going back many years.

Slough Observer:

Paul Bayley, of the fundraising committee, said: “The ducks were spectacular again - it’s always quite a feat watching them go into the river.

“The musical acts we had were also very good.

“It is a great community event and people look forward to it each year.”
