Ten years ago: VANDALISM and petty crime is costing Henley Town Council £1,000 every week and it will only get worse, Councillor Barry Wood warned this week. He says the current £430,000 CCTV scheme for the town, which is being funded by South Oxfordshire District Council, ignores the worst area for vandalism.
A Soha tenant won the prize for most improved garden in a competition run by the housing association. Philip Hughes, from Nettlebed, beat 80 other tenants to also win the most outstanding contribution prize and £50 of gardening vouchers. Mr Hughes said: “When I moved here the garden was just a rough piece of grass and I have worked hard to bring it up to this standard.”
Golfers of all abilities helped swell the funds of the Face of Henley charity by almost £2,000 on Saturday when they competed at the Greys Green course in Peppard. There were prizes for nearest the pin, the longest drive and any holes-in-one on the par three holes.
