MEMBERS of Henley Wildlife Group spent a morning removing Himalayan balsam from the stream by the River and Rowing Museum.

MEMBERS of Henley Wildlife Group spent a morning removing Himalayan balsam from the stream by the River and Rowing Museum.

They also cleared overgrown vegetation from ponds and pathways in Mill Meadows. Afterwards, they relaxed with a cup of tea in the town council’s new deckchairs, which can be hired for £2 from the tourist information kiosk.

Henley Mayor Stefan Gawrysiak, who visited the volunteers, said: “We really owe a lot to the wildlife group because they look after many important sites for Henley. If they didn’t spend time on it, the wildlife area would become close mown grass and the stream in front of the River and Rowing Museum would be full of weeds.”

The group meets monthly to carry out work around the town. For more information, call chairwoman Sally Rankin on (01491) 578633 or visit www.henleywildlifegroup.co.uk
