THE river at Wargrave has gone down very appreciably. Most of the low-lying meadows have been  inundated and a great deal of inconvenience has been caused to persons living in close proximity to the river.

In connection with the movement for utilising women to do the work of men who are called up to the colours, a registry will be opened at the Technical Institute, Duke Street, Henley. Next week an official will be in attendance on Tuesday and Friday and on Wednesday morning for the purpose of taking the names and capabilities of those willing to undertake work.

It was reported to the Henley Board of Guardians that the trees in Hop Gardens which had caused damage to the guardians’ property had been removed by Mr G W Turner. Mr Peck suggested that Mr Turner should be called upon to make good the damage. An estimate of the cost of the necessary work could be obtained and Mr Turner might then be called upon to defray the expense, he said. The board agreed.
