BUILDERS of the leisure pavilion in Henley’s Mill Meadows have issued a writ against the town

BUILDERS of the leisure pavilion in Henley’s Mill Meadows have issued a writ against the town council demanding the immediate payment of £39,000. Milne Contracts Ltd of Oxford gave the town council until Monday of this week to settle the bill and are now claiming a further £148 costs and £16 for each day the money is not paid. Earlier this month the council refused to pay the architect, David Tapp and Associates, and Milne Contracts because they were dissatisfied with the building.

Would-be thieves, who tried to steal a car from Central Garage in Henley, had to give up in the end after crashing the vehicle into a brick wall. The driver ran into trouble when the £6,500 Audi Coupe’s steering lock jammed as they were reversing out of the forecourt, sometime between 8pm and 10.30pm on Tuesday night. After scraping alongside a pillar they crashed through a brick wall.

Health chiefs for West Berkshire will meet members of Henley Town Council on September 3 to discuss threats to the Townlands Casualty Unit. The council recently called on the health authority to forget any such plans and to explain what had happened to money from the sale of the former War Memorial Hospital.
