A race against time saw Old Windsor Memorial Hall's new floor finished with just hours to spare - as the organisers of the village's annual horticultural show waited to learn whether it would have to be cancelled.

The new £18,000 floor hit a bit of a snag when concrete was found under the old one, forcing the replacement to be raised to a higher level.

Jim Snapes, who is treasurer of the Old Windsor Handicraft, Produce and Horticultural Society, said: "It was touch and go. They worked through Thursday night to get it finished. They finished about 2am in the morning and we were able to start setting the show up on later that day ready for Saturday."

It was lucky everything worked out as Mr Snapes said this year's show was well attended.

Louise Pollock won the overall Challenge Cup for most points in show with Mavis Waghorn runner-up.

The Royal Borough Deputy Mayor Cllr Dee Quick presented all 25 cups to adults and children.

There were plenty of ways to make an impression.

Fred Fletcher - a Windsor allotment holder - won two cups for his vegetable exhibits, while Joe Mills from Datchet produced a pumpkin that could only ever have been a prizewinner.

The artistic side was not forgotten as prizes were given for everything from paintings to knitted toys.

Mr Snapes said that Old Windsor show had benefitted from the demise of other competitive agricultural shows in the area with people coming from as far as Ascot to take part.

He said: "We have been going for 81 years and it looks quite good for the future although we are all getting older."
