Volunteers are needed to help build a Coronation Arch in Windsor to mark 60 years since the Queen was crowned.
The project will see a floral display built near Windsor Castle's Cambridge Gate, along with six willow arches at the top of the Long Walk.
The Royal Borough has issued a call to anyone who is free this Friday who would be interested in assisting.
Volunteers should turn up from 11am, wearing sensible clothing, and armed with gardening gloves and secateurs. Call 07740 083720 for more details.
The initiative is a collaboration between the council, the Royal Windsor Rose & Horticultural Society and the Windsor & Eton Town Partnership.
The unveiling of the Coronation Arch is set to take place at 11am on Saturday, September 14 with Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead Cllr Andrew Jenner, celebrity gardener Alan Titchmarsh and actress Anna Friel.
