TAKE FIVE: What is the mayor's role in Henley?
Published 19/05/14



“The Mayor draws the community together, particularly with local schools. They inform them about what’s going on and help them to feel like they’re part of a wider community outside of their own.”
Liz Parham, former teacher, Nicholas Road, Henley



“It’s a wonderful tradition going back to the 14th century and one that provides stability, continuity and a focus for people’s loyalties.”
Brig Malcolm Page, Ancastle Green, Henley



;“The outgoing Mayor Stefan Gawrysiak has shown what an important role it can be in focusing attention on the town, its issues, people and problems as well as giving a real push to charity collections.”
Kester George, Parish Councillor, Harpsden Woods



“You need someone who can take charge of a body like the town council — someone you can go to for advice and the like. It’s important to have a figurehead, like the Queen is for the country.”
David Eggleton, Runs house clearance business, Gainsborough Road, Henley



“The Mayor is a figurehead around whom activities in the town can be focussed, particularly charitable and social activities. The role also helps to publicise policies that benefit Henley.”
Richard Marriott, Retired, St Mark's Road, Henley
