The Express and Advertiser's CEO and Editorial Director have both been slung in the stocks today to mark St George's Day.
Patriotic CEO Jeremy Spooner, wearing an England football shirt, and Editor Martin Trepte, in fetching chain mail as St George, were soaked by sponges thrown by delighted members of staff to raise money for two charities.
Baylis Media Ltd, owners of the Express and Advertiser series, based in Bell Street, Maidenhead, has agreed to donate £100 each to the Thames Valley Adventure Playground (TVAP) and Open Kitchen.
Christine Bristow also raised £10 for the TVAP by wearing knickers on her head and Janice Nattress donated £4 for the Open Kitchen.
TVAP is an adventure playground in Taplow for children and adults with special needs and Open Kitchen provides food and help for needy families in and around Maidenhead.
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.
