Sick and injured swans had their lives improved by generous employees from Centrica on Thursday.
The visit was organised by Windsor and Maidenhead Voluntary Action (WMVA). The Centrica guys cleared and maintained pens, repainted fences and carried out general ground maintenance on the site in Cuckoo Weir Island.There are currently more than 50 sick and injured swans in the centre as well as many orphaned cygnets and ducklings which need additional care.
Eileen Denny, community action co-ordinator at WMVA, said “We are delighted to be working with Centrica again on this community effort. The swans are very much part of Windsor and our environment but at this time of year, as well as the injured birds there are many sicknesses which can strike and Swan Lifeline is reliant upon volunteers for help."
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.
Further details have been revealed over how many trains will be running in Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead during planned rail strikes later this month.
