Sight loss charity the RNIB is asking people in Windsor to 'go dotty' by holding fundraisers celebrating Louis Braille's revolutionary communication system.
Braille pioneered the use of raised dots to help the blind and partially sighted to read.
The RNIB wants to celebrate his work and is encouraging people to raise money by dressing in polka dots, having a dotty cake sale or something truly dotty like bathing in a tub of baked beans.
There are estimated to be more than 4,000 people affected by sight loss in Windsor and Maidenhead.
Visit here for details.
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.
