Outstanding achievements in 2012 were celebrated at Windsor and Eton Society's annual dinner on Friday.
The Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead Cllr Colin Rayner congratulated members on their biggest recent projects - the Diamond Jubilee tribute sculpture now ensconced in King Edward Court and the 2012 Facelift, during which 160 public spaces and buildings in Windsor were refurbished or enhanced.
The dinner was organised by Joan Bigg and held in the Castle Hotel.
Windsor and Eton Society's president Air Marshal Ian Macfadyen, the governor of Windsor Castle, introduced the principal guest Doctor Alastair Niven. He talked about his 12 years running Cumberland Lodge, which is an educational charity in the heart of the Great Park.
Society chairman Anne Taylor thanked key members for the support they had given Beryl Hedges, retiring this year from her organising role on the executive committee.
She also presented previous chairman Doctor David Murray Bruce with an honorary life membership scroll.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
