Books in call box

PLANS to turn an old telephone box in Henley into a mini-library have been backed by

PLANS to turn an old telephone box in Henley into a mini-library have been backed by the town council.

The red kiosk on the corner of St Andrew’s Road and Belle Vue Road was bought by the council for £1 from BT in November 2013.

The council was considering moving it to Greys Road at the junction with Manor Road near the shops and installing a defibrillator in it.

But Millie Bond, of St Andrew’s Road, suggested that it should be left where it is and used to store books instead. Now this idea has been backed by the council’s town and community  committee.

Mayor Lorraine Hillier added: “The young lady who put this forward was also prepared to look after it and clean it because she was very passionate about keeping it.”
