Swapping your home might sound like a tough challenge.
But that did not deter potential home swappers who turned up at the Memorial Hall, Straight Road, Old Windsor.
The event had been organised by three housing associations - Radian, Housing Solutions and One Housing.
The aim was to let tenants from all three find homes better suited to their needs. Everyone turned up armed with photographs of their properties and 62 homes were put forward to swap.
Radian supplies homes across the Windsor area. Its community development officer Gemma Stephenson said: “The Home Swap Shop event allowed visitors to meet people who also needed to swap their home they would otherwise not have met.
“We are so pleased that one swap is already underway and another has been found as a direct result of this event."
More are already planned.
