Father Christmas greeted gardening fans at the gates of Braywick Heath Nurseries on Saturday as it held its Christmas fair.
Fairgoers guzzled on mince pies and got stuck into the tombola which had plenty of festive gifts up for grabs.
Fred Simmonds, otherwise known as Fingers Fred, provided the musical entertainment for the day and played a selection of seasonal tunes on his keyboard while people revelled in the festive spirit.
Cookham resident Fred, 73, said: “I play at a lot of different places over Christmas but I always enjoy doing something for Braywick Heath Nurseries.
“I’ve got a thing for plants and flowers, I just love them.”
Fair organiser Carole Selway also paid tribute to the scores of volunteers who helped the event run smoothly.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
