Take Five: World War One

Did Henley and the surrounding villages do enough to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Britain joining the First World War?



Helen Prescot, 59, a cook, of Greys Road, Henley: “Most definitely and I think Henley is also good with Remembrance Day. The exhibition at the Old Post Office Gallery is marvellous and I’m pleased with how the town has dealt with it.”

There was the exhibition and other things to clue up the younger people on what happened 100 years ago.”
