A series of walks have been organised by the East Berkshire Ramblers over the festive period.
The group provides the chance to make new friends and improve your health whilst enjoying walks of a varied nature.
The first is being held tomorrow - a three-and-a-half mile walk around Maidenhead Thicket with parking available at the National Trust car park in Pinkneys Drive. It will begin at 10.30am.
The next is a five-mile stroll on Wednesday starting at 10.30am. It consists of a gentle stroll around Virginia Water Lake with parking available at The Belvedere Arms car park.
On Sunday, December 30, there will be an easy walk to Cookham via The Greenway East and back along the Thames Path. Dogs are welcome on the five-and-a-half-mile route which starts at 10.15am.
Finally, welcome in the new year with a six-mile ramble along the Jubilee River on Tuesday, January 1. Parking is available at Asda in Cippenham. It will include a stop in Windsor for a hot chocolate.
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.
