THE Mayor of Henley says she would like to see the return of a town band.

Lorraine Hillier was speaking at a meeting of the town council’s recreation and amenities committee, which was discussing use of the bandstand in Mill Meadows.

Councillor Hillier said: "We haven’t got our own band and it would be lovely to have one."

Councillor Sam Evans said: "We should make it a mission to have one."

Councillor Ian Reissmann suggested talking to Henley Symphony Orchestra in case some of its musicians were interested in the idea.



Councillor David Eggeleton asked if local bands could play in Mill Meadows regularly.

Councillor Kellie Hinton responded: "I don’t know how I’d feel going down there on a Saturday when a heavy metal band was playing. There has to be some consideration of the style of music."
