MR and Mrs W Morton, of 22 Crisp Road, who on July 29 advertised in the Henley Standard the loss of £4 in cash just drawn as an old age pension, had a pleasant surprise on Monday morning. They received by post a postal order for £4 but as it was unaccompanied by any other enclosure they are unable to thank the sender who, they hope, will accept through this paper an expression of their attitude.

Henley Rural District Council heard on Tuesday that a refund of rates totalling £19 18s 11d is to be made to a council house tenant. Wing Commander Sinclair Wood, chairman of the finance committee, explained that the tenant had been charged rates on a garage erected at the house by the previous tenant, who took the garage with him when he vacated the house.

Welcoming the attendance of two members of the general public to the meeting of Henley Rural District Council on Tuesday — this being the first time for many years that a meeting has been attended by other members, officials and the press — the chairman, Mr A H Stevens, hoped this would be an example to be followed by others interested in local government.
