SLOUGH: Families with special educational needs or disabled children, young people and adults are being invited to speak about their experiences of the services they use in Slough.

The Special Voices group is holding a participation day at Participation, Association, Leisure & Sport (PALS) in Northern Road tomorrow (Saturday) from 2-4.30pm.

There will be a free entrance gift, raffle and refreshments.

WINDSOR: Iconic figures including David Bowie, John Lennon and Muhammad Ali will light up an art shop in the town centre tomorrow (Saturday).

Work by British neon artist Louis Sidoli will be on display at Castle Fine Art, in King Edward Court, from 1-4pm.

He creates neon art of cultural icons and was inspired by the music of Bowie.

The artist said: “It was the track Andy Warhol on Bowie’s 1971 Hunky Dory album that, from an early age, first ignited my curiosity and love of the pop art movement. It’s fair to say that without this album, I might not have become an artist.”


ASCOT: The Ascot Farmers’ Market is being held on Sunday.

Marketgoers should head to Car Park 3 at Ascot Racecourse for a 9.30am start.

MAIDENHEAD: There are set to be plenty of attractions at a Spring Fair on Sunday.

Held at the Holiday Inn in Manor Lane, organisers say it will feature more than 35 stalls.

Disney princess Elsa from Frozen will open the event at noon and will pose for photographs with parents and children.

Later, Mickey Mouse will be on hand to entertain the children. There will also be sand art and face painting.

The event, which finishes at 4pm, is free for children and £2 for adults.

A raffle will raise funds for five-year-old Ruby James, a Manor Green School pupil currently at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, where she is being monitored for epilepsy and fluid on the brain.

Money raised in the raffle will buy sensory equipment for Ruby’s home in Woodlands Park.

WINDSOR: The annual Funfest organised by the Windsor Lions will take place on Sunday at Windsor Leisure Centre.

The annual event is for disabled children and their families to enjoy an afternoon of fun activities.
