An opportunity to find out more about the first stage of work for the Maidenhead Waterways project will be on offer this weekend.
Organisers of the project will be holding a drop-in session for members of the public who are interested in the scheme at Maidenhead Library on Saturday.
It will include a presentation on the importance of work to remove trees around the York Stream channel, which is due to begin next month.
It will also give more detail on the first stage of the project, which has a long-term aim of creating a ring of navigable water around the town centre by widening and improving existing channels.
The drop-in session takes place at the library, in St Ives Road, from 10am-1pm.
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.
