IN PICTURES Weekend highlights

of Here is a photo gallery round-up of some of the events which went on in the area over the weekend: 1.
A quacking time was had once again by families as they cheered on their yellow ducks at the annual Duck Derby in Maidenhead on Sunday. The event was started by the Royal Borough mayor Dorothy Kemp, who sounded the hooter for the 2,500 plus plastic ducks to be unleashed on the River Thames, at Ray Mill Island. 3. Footballers played their hearts out on Saturday afternoon in Cookham to support a charity and a little girl with a rare brain tumour. It was organised to raised funds for CLIC Sargent, which has supported two-year-old Kayley Grantham, and her family, since the youngster was diagnosed with a benign brain tumour when she was one. 4. A sailing club held its annual event on Saturday morning to attract more sailers into their club. Different varieties of boats featured at The Kingsmead Sailing Club Lake, off the Horton Road, as potential new members were given rides on the water. 5. Some of the hottest musical talent in Maidenhead took to the streets on Saturday to take part in a busking event. Seven diverse bands and artists performed outside the old Woolworths in the High Street, and organised to raise funds for the Maidenhead Carnival which is taking place in June. 6. The Christian faith was celebrated in Marlow’s Higginson Park on Sunday by a bumper crowd. Being held for the second time, the Hope in the Park event was organised by six churches in the town and the family feast of fun was attended by more than 1,000 people.
7. Hordes of excited Rolf Harris fans lined a shopping centre in Maidenhead on Saturday when the much-loved entertainer signed copies of his new book. Many waited patiently for more than an hour outside Waterstones in the Nicholson Centre, to meet their hero and get a copy of the ‘Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport’ publication autographed.
