Funding fireworks

FORMER mayor Ken Arlett questioned the town council’s decision to give an £8,000 grant towards this year’s Henley Summer Fireworks

FORMER mayor Ken Arlett questioned the town council’s decision to give an £8,000 grant towards this year’s Henley Summer Fireworks display, which takes place on the Saturday of the royal regatta.

Speaking from the public gallery at last week’s council meeting, he said, “I am not sure whether the fireworks are for the people of Henley or the people who go to the regatta.

“I just feel it’s £8,000 of taxpayers’ money going up in smoke.“ Quite.
