Councillor takes rest

DEPUTY Mayor Martin Akehurst has been relieved of his duties on Henley Town Council temporarily for health reasons.

DEPUTY Mayor Martin Akehurst has been relieved of his duties on Henley Town Council temporarily for health reasons.

He requested an extended period of absence, which was unanimously agreed by full council on Tuesday.

Town clerk Mike Kennedy said: “He is not doing this for any other reason than his health and he has been advised to take complete rest, which means his other activities, such as acting and volunteer work, will also stop.

“Councillor Akehurst is a north ward member and there are eight others who serve it so the other seven councillors will have to spread their work to cover him.”

Cllr Akehurst, who lives in Two Tree Hill, Henley, was elected in May 2011. He was elected Deputy Mayor in April and is deputy chairman of the planning committee.
