HENLEY was judged in the regional finals of this year’s Britain in Bloom competition yesterday (Thursday).
Two Thames and Chilterns region judges visited the town and were shown around by members of Henley in Bloom.
Anne Kempson and Mike Gass were met in Mill Meadows by parks manager Gareth Bartle, who drove them to one of the oldest buildings in the town, the Chantry House, adjacent to St Mary’s Church.
Members of the group gave a presentation with examples of their work, including the Hit Litter clean-up, plant sale, garden competitions and community planting, as well as their future plans for the town.
The judges then began the two-hour tour by boarding a boat, provided by Hobbs of Henley, to view landmarks from the river, including the Henley Royal Regatta headquarters and the regatta course, Leander Club, Singers Park and Henley Bridge.
