Pubs compete to win print of Queen's horses

Pub regulars who contribute to a statue celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Queen's coronation could be in for a nice surprise.

There are 16 collecting boxes in pubs across Windsor. The statue will commemorate the Windsor Grey horses that pull the Queen's carriage through the town during state visits.

The pub that collects the most money in the next three months will receive a framed limited edition print of a drawing of the Windsor Greys done by the sculptor Robert Rattray.

The statue should be standing proudly on the Osborne Road/Kings Road roundabout in time for the 60th anniversary of the Queen's coronation next June. It will cost £200,000.

The Duke of Cambridge - Prince William - is the patron of the appeal, which received a boost when members of the public voted for it to receive £2,000 as part of the Royal Borough's neighbourhood funding scheme.

The Windsor Greys have not been the subject of a sculpture before.
