Tea party to honour the fallen

ABOUT 70 people attended a tea party at Peppard war memorial hall to commemorate the men from the village who died in the First World War.

Clive Mills, who chairs the hall committee, read out a message of best wishes from the Queen.

Nick Launders led a time of remembrance for the soldiers named on the plaque in the hall and a wreath was laid by Barbara Butler.

Mike Willoughby, an amateur historian who has spent a decade researching the war memorials in the Henley area, gave a talk about this work with particular reference to Peppard.

The guests then enjoyed the party with a commemorative cake cut by 105-year-old Mollie Walker.
