An appeal has been launched for fresh helpers to support the 80th Littlewick Show this summer.
Key organiser Valerie Bosley hopes a group of around a dozen 'strong and responsible' people can assist with setting up and taking down the tables and tents for the annual horticultural show.
Valerie, from Pinkneys Road, is concerned that the increasing age of their regular team of helpers and the growing popularity of the show means they need extra people on board.
The annual event is designed to bring together the community and help raise money for charities. It is expected that about 10,000 people will attend this year.
Exhibitions, competitions, live music, craft activities, charity stalls, a children's funfair and horse and dog shows are just a few of the activities that will be entertaining visitors.
Valerie is also concerned that fewer people are taking part in the floral art competition and she hopes more people will sign up before the event.
Organised by the Littlewick Green Society and sponsored by the Louis Baylis (Maidenhead Advertiser) Charitable Trust, the show will take place at the Braywick showground in Ascot Road on August Bank Holiday Monday, August 25.
Helpers need to be available several days before for to assist with the preparation of the event, and also during and after the event.
Contact Valerie on 01628 630622 or email Valerie@vbosley.plus.com for more information.

Advance tickets for the show are available from Pike, Smith and Kemp in Queen Street, Time Machine in Westborough Road, Boyn Hill, and Hunts Hardware in Station Road in Marlow.
