MAIDENHEAD: A new auction house which opened in December will hold its first auction on Saturday.

Dawson’s Auctioneers opened on the Kings Grove Estate after months of looking for the right location.

The first auction selling fine art and antiques will begin at 10am.

ROYAL BOROUGH: Fit For Life week will return this weekend, offering residents in the borough a chance to try a new sport for free.

An opening event will take place from 10am-1pm.


SUNDAY:

DORNEY: Runners can kick off the new year by taking part in the Windsor Winter Half Marathon.
