Everyone has their own idea of what makes a 'grand day out'.

It certainly inspired everyone taking part in this afternoon's Old Windsor Carnival procession.

The 7th Windsor (Old Windsor) Scout Group chose a day at the zoo as the theme for their float - with scouts disguised as animals, some in a 'cage' marked 'don't feed the animals'.

Old Windsor Rainbow Group created a circus on their float complete with a man about to be shot out of a cannon, a ring master and a strong man.

But the seaside was the big attraction for Kings Court First School pupils.Their float boasted a carousel, helter skelter and a Punch and Judy show.

But some 'days out' were more serious.

The 3rd Old Windsor brownies' float reflected the fight by suffragettes to win the vote for women - a battle partially won 100 years ago this year.

Their days out could end in imprisonment and brutal treatment.

The brownies on the float proudly waved banners calling for equal rights - revealing they will grow up as women to be reckoned with.

Brown owl Anna Burn took the opportunity to give Royal Borough mayor and mayoress Cllr Paul Lion and Laura Lion - who were judging the floats - a potted history lesson about the suffragettes.

The lesson must have worked as the brownies' float was announced as the best when they all reached the recreation ground at Robin Willis Way.
