Councillor quits due to move
Published 20/04/15



A HENLEY councillor is not standing at the elections next month because he no longer lives in the town.

David Clenshaw, who represents Henley Residents’ Group, moved to Bray a few months after being elected in May 2011.

He said: “The only reason I’m not standing is that I don’t live in Henley anymore and I don’t think I should stand for the residents’ group if I’m not a resident.

“There have been difficulties over the last few months but, yes, on the whole, I’ve enjoyed it. I have enjoyed serving and I wish I could continue to do so. I want to leave it to people who live in the town now.”

Councillor Clenshaw, who works part–time in the Oxfam book shop in Duke Street, had lived in the town for more than 25 years.


He added: “I still see Henley very much as my town. It was one of my ambitions to live there as a child. When I succeeded in doing that I wanted to take part.”

He continues to be a member of HRG’s executive committee and says he will continue to support the party.

Meanwhile, Simon Rees, who was due to stand as for the party in the Henley North ward, has pulled out due to work commitments.

Mr Rees moved to the town four years ago and lives in New Street.

He has worked in media and advertising and has interests in a number of online and digital start–ups in learning, content creation and environmental sustainability.
