A display shop has all the information residents need about plans for the town centre.
Created by new group Friends of Maidenhead, which was started by the Rotary Club of Maidenhead Thames, it has brought together displays from organisations planning developments in the town, including Maidenhead Waterways and Crossrail.
The group has set up shop in the Nicholsons Centre and opened for the first time on Saturday, June 4.
Leading the initiative is John Carr from the Rotary club.
He said: “Despite all of the information around, a lot of the people coming in are still not aware of what’s going to happen in the town.
“The reaction from residents has been absolutely brilliant. We had about 250 people visiting in the first weekend with some signing up to join our group.”
The space will be open for anyone to drop in every Saturday from 10am-4pm and volunteers are hoping to open during the week for office workers in the town to learn more about the developments.
