The annual outing to 'Rosie’s Chocolate Factory' at Sheeplands Farm, near Wargrave for Year 4 boys from Papplewick School in Ascot was as popular as ever this year.

The trip was part of the ‘Geography of Chocolate’ scheme of work for the Year 4 Geography course. The boys had been learning about the climate required for the growing of cacao beans, and went to see how the beans are transformed into a chocolate bar. 

The boys made a chocolate bar and a lollipop (with a choice of white, milk or dark chocolate) and then delighted in decorating them with sweets. 

 Headmaster Tom Bunbury said "Extraordinarily this geographical trip commands 100 percent attention during the duration of the workshop !"

Apply now to join the Royal Borough’s new resident parking discount scheme


Motorists living in the Royal Borough can now apply online for their free, virtual parking permits to join the council’s new resident parking discount scheme offering one hour free in six popular car parks.

Residents can apply to get the discount at car parks in Alma Road and Alexandra Gardens in Windsor, Grove Road and West Street in Maidenhead, Horton Road in Datchet, and Meadow Lane in Eton. 

Just follow these simple steps to get started:

 Firstly, set up a free online account with the RingGo cashless parking system (if you don’t already have one)

  1. Then you can apply for your free virtual permits to get the discounts in the car parks you wish to use. Permit applications can be made via a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
  2. Once your application has been approved, start using your discounted sessions from Monday 4 April 2022, activated either through the RingGo app or via landline or mobile phone using the automated voice service.

 For more information on the scheme and how to apply, visit Check out our video showing how to apply via this page.

The introduction of the resident parking discount scheme makes the Royal Borough one of the only local authorities in England to offer such a scheme. Free parking will continue to be offered for disabled users and those using electric vehicles. Motorcycles can continue to be parked for free in their designated bays in selected car parks. If motorcyclists park in a normal bay, they will need to pay the usual fee unless they have joined the discount scheme.

You can apply for permits for all six, or just some, of the car parks. A separate application will have to be made for each car park except Maidenhead and Windsor where one application each covers both car parks in each of those areas. Applications for the permits only need to be submitted once and will last for up to two years.
