Henley Design Day hailed a success

THE fourth annual Henley Design Day took place at the town hall on Saturday

THE fourth annual Henley Design Day took place at the town hall on Saturday.

Twenty architects and design experts came together to showcase examples of their work to potential clients and talk to them about how they could help them with their ideas for their homes.

Sarah Miller, a town councillor who organised the event with the Royal Institute for British Architects, said: “We had in excess of 200 people, not as many as in previous years but it was more quality, not quantity. The people who came in were clutching plans, drawings and photographs.

“We always hold it on the first Saturday in March and we’re looking forward to running it again next year. We’re thinking of ways of making it bigger but we don’t want to leave the town hall.

“It’s really to shatter the myth about architects. An architect can run a whole project from start to finish.

“This way people can come along and sit in front of an architect, or three, and receive free advice and the architects showcase themselves as well. If the exhibitors are happy, I’m happy.”

The Henley Society, a conservation group to which Cllr Miller belongs, had a stall promoting its work.
