The Windsor and Eton Facelift 2022 is an initiative of The Windsor and Eton Society in partnership with the Windsor and Eton Partnership and the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. Taking inspiration from the Facelift movement begun in the 1950s by The Civic Trust, and previous Windsor and Eton Facelifts, the first in 1961 and the most recent in 2012, we aim to have the towns looking their sparkling best in time for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June. We are seeking support for a general “clear, clean and tidy up” ; encouraging a co-ordinated effort to beautify the towns with newly planted public spaces, buildings adorned with planters and flower baskets and Jubilee themed window displays, as well as cleaning and repainting building facades when possible, and other improvements such as clearing away unsightly cables and unnecessary signage and making minor repairs to stonework and joinery.
Help and support will be available from the facelift team and volunteer Facelift Ambassadors, who will be visiting buildings in the core area to encourage participation. Advice on alterations, or on repainting of town centre buildings can be had from the Conservation Team at the borough. We hope that as many people as possible will join us in making our towns places to be proud of in 2022
