HENLEY in Bloom has been celebrating the success of the Henley Standard’s Going for Gold campaign.
A total of 171 summer hanging baskets have been bought by town centre businesses, shops and residents in a bid to help Henley win Britain in Bloom.
That was one more than the target and eight better than last year’s record total of 163 baskets.
At a meeting of the council’s Henley in Bloom committee on Tuesday, member Marisa Francini thanked the Henley Standard and fellow committee member Caroline Langler for promoting the sale of the baskets.
She said: “I want to thank Caroline for her diligence and tenacity. Sometimes it is very hard to get people to order baskets. We have a core group of 70 or 80 people who always order and the rest are really difficult to get.
