The mayor is all set to make a big splash at this year's Windsor Swimathon.
Cllr Andrew Jenner will make history by being the first Royal Borough mayor to actually swim in the Windsor Lions' annual fundraising event when it takes place on Sunday, October 14 at the Leisure Centre in Stovell Road.
The event has raised £100,000 for good causes over the last 16 years, as assorted teams swam for their favourite charity while Royal Borough mayors cheered from the poolside.
But Cllr Jenner will be taking the plunge himself, heading his own team.
The formula will be the usual one with each team swimming for 55 minutes as individual members take turns to cover laps.
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.
