Bike stands repainted

A set of bike stands in Henley will be painted green.

Henley mayor Elizabeth Hodgkin described the existing galvanised steel stands in Friday Street as “utilitarian” and suggested painting them would be an improvement.

Speaking at Tuesday’s meeting of Henley town council’s traffic advisory committee, Cllr Hodgkin said: “They [the stands] are in the centre of a conservation area. They seem quite cheap and the quality appears to be quite poor. I think the paint would make them look quite attractive.”

Councillors voted in favour of the proposal and the council’s parks and recreation team will now paint the stands.
