More than 25 community groups came together in Slough’s High Street last Saturday to showcase their work to passers-by in an annual initiative.

This year’s Slough Windsor and Maidenhead Community Initiative (SWAMI) was the “biggest and best yet”, with Slough MP Tan Dhesi and mayor Avtar Kaur Cheema joining in the revelry.

Entertainment included performances from the Dhol Collective, a team of highly trained dhol (Indian drum) players and singer Michelle Bewley, while visitors browsed stands by the Samaritans and the Slough Happiness Collective.

Organisers said HOME Slough had one of the most crowded stands, with children crowding around to participate in crafts.

Anthony Lewis, an organiser from the Windsor Humanists, said he was “delighted” by the event’s success.

He said: “After three years it feels like the SWAMI event in Slough High Street has peaked. We have received so many positive comments, we’re delighted.”

SWAMI is led by the Slough Faith Partnership, the Windsor and Maidenhead Community Forum (WAMCF) and Windsor Humanists.

Its mission is to bring together the three towns to strengthen friendships and promote closer co-operation.
