TOWN councillors were at Harpsden village fete on Sundday to promote Henley’s neighbourhood plan.
All 16 were invited but at least one had a good excuse not to be there.
David Silvester, a former Conservative who defected to UKIP earlier this year, was with his family being given a tour of Old Trafford, where Manchester United play.
“I am not a fan but my stepson is,” says David. In fact, he is a regular at the Triangle in Mill Lane, home of Henley Town FC — a long way from the home of the Premier League champions!
