FESTIVITIES got off to a quacking start at a summer fair.
The highlight of the Royal Windsor Midsummer Fair at Alexandra Gardens was a plastic duck race, which saw 2,000 plastic ducks, purchased by fair-goers for £2, racing for a £500 first place prize.
Up to 40 charity stalls, including Thames Valley Hospicecare and Age Concern, were hoping to raise at total of £15,000 at the fair on Saturday (30), organised by the Rotary Club of Windsor and Eton.
Rotarian and co-organiser David Shaw said: "It's great to see people having fun and raising money for so many good causes."
Entertainment included a Punch and Judy puppet show, food stalls, book sales and various activities as families and friends came together in the sunshine under the Windsor Wheel.
