HOPS needs volunteers to keep scheme alive

ORGANISERS of this year’s Henley Outdoor Play Scheme say it may not take place unless more volunteers are found

ORGANISERS of this year’s Henley Outdoor Play Scheme say it may not take place unless more volunteers are found.

Acting chairwoman Emma Taylor, of Western Avenue, wants a minimum of five more committee members to help run the week-long holiday scheme held at Trinity School in Church Street.

She said former chairwoman Vanessa Lakatos and treasurer Sarah Lane had stepped down. Nine people in total are needed to oversee the week, which is set to be held in July.

The event is enjoyed by hundreds of youngsters and Mrs Taylor said: "It’s actually not that onerous. The more people, the less everyone has to do. It’s such a fun week as well.

“It’s been running for over 30 years and it would be awful to see it stop.”

Attractions in previous years have included workshops and activities involving arts and crafts, a beauty parlour, woodwork, cookery, cricket coaching, a bouncy castle, needlework and an obstacle course.

If you can help call Mrs Taylor on 07799 413903. A meeting will be held next Thursday at 8pm at the Catherine Wheel in Hart Street where people can find out more.
