Date set for Windsor night market as part of Bright Idea scheme

A night market will take place in Windsor this summer after last year's Bright Idea challenge prize provided funding for the event.

The initiative asked residents living in the Royal Borough to come up with solutions to problems affecting Windsor and Maidenhead.

The £20,000 scheme was won by Maidenhead homeowner Jeff Lloyd in September with his idea of creating an evening street market, which will come into fruition in July.

Speaking at a Windsor Town Forum meeting on Monday, Windsor and Eton town manager Paul Roach said: "The whole concept for the street market is a bit like a street festival with food stalls, entertainment and very family orientated.

The night market for Maidenhead will take place on Saturday, July 12, and the Windsor night market will take place on Saturday, July 19.

Other winning entries from last year include the 'Walk Wise' scheme to encourage people to walk more by devising signs which tell walkers how many calories they burn while walking to various destination.

The final scheme was the Wildflower Project where nectar bars are planted in specific locations to attract honey bees and improve the growth of wildflower.

This year's competition is due to be launched on July 1 with the awards announced on October 7.
