You can get Nectar points with lots of things today.
Now the Royal Borough has come up with a nifty way of encouraging people to look after their streets. As part of its partnership with Nectar, the authority has launched a pilot scheme that will entitle people to collect 'points' by participating in its Adopt-a-Street schemes.
Last week Nectar's marketing director James Frost and Royal Borough cabinet member Cllr Christine Bateson met up with volunteers from the Borough’s Adopt-a-Street scheme in Old Windsor led by Brenda Pollock, to launch the scheme.
They chose a fantastic spot for it - on the village's riverbank where the air is like 'nectar'.
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.
