A fascinating look through Windsor's history was how one community group celebrated the Queen’s birthday.
On Wednesday more than 20 members of Windsor’s University of the Third Age (U3A) enjoyed a visit to the Windsor and Royal Borough Museum.
The chairman of Friends of Windsor, Malcolm Lock, gave the group a guided tour through the museum and the specially-opened Guildhall.
Astrid Thompson, from the group, said: “Malcolm and the experienced museum staff gave us a fascinating guided tour through Windsor History. We even saw the stair lift having a face lift in readiness for the possibility of the Queen’s visit on Thursday.”
The U3A is an educational group made up of members, normally retired or semi-retired, who wish to use some of their leisure time to acquire new knowledge and skills.
The Windsor branch has 450 members and offers 54 subjects raging from science to Latin, to crafts and wine tasting. The group meets on the second Wednesday of every month at Gardeners Hall in St Leonards Road.
