THE ban on barbecues in Henley’s Marsh Meadows is set to be lifted.
The town council, which owns the riverside beauty spot, banned them last summer, saying they posed a fire risk.
Now the Mill Meadows and river sub-committee has recommended lifting the ban on a trial basis this summer.
It has recommended building 10 public barbecues made out of tree stumps with a steel plate nailed on top.
These could be built by the council’s parks team in a day at a maximum cost of about £50 each.
