a free, two-course Christmas lunch was held for 37 of Henley’s older residents. The guests, from the Gainsborough estate, The Close and King James Way, enjoyed turkey dinner followed by Christmas pudding at the Catherine Wheel pub in Hart Street. The event was paid for with a grant from housing association Soha to the Gainsborough Residents’ Association. It was organised by town councillor and association chairman David Eggleton and vice-chairwoman Paula Isaac. He said: “It was to bring the older generation together and to show them there are people to support them. It was brilliant and people loved it. There were lots of comments from people saying they can’t wait to have it again next year.” Guests included the Mayor Lorraine Hillier and Lynda Mortimer, manager of the Henley Over-60s Club. There was a raffle of four food hampers made up of items donated by Henley youth and community group Nomad
