Ban on barbecues set to be lifted in summer trial

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.
