Teenager walks in great grandfather's footsteps

A TEENAGER has joined the Henley and District Talking Newspaper Association that was founded by her great grandfather.

Amy Green, 14, from Hurley, has always been keen to follow in the footsteps of her mother Caroline, who is secretary of the association, and Arthur Hull, who started it in 1982 with the support of Henley Lions Club.

She is one of the association’s youngest readers. After a successful test read a few months ago, she recently read for the first time.

Mrs Green said: “I think my grandfather would be very proud that three generations of his family are still involved in it.

“I remember as a 10-year-old I used to help him in the school holidays with the copying side of it . I was desperate to read but he said I needed to be a bit older. My daughter has done the same thing and it means a lot to me.”
