Cheers to new act

WHEN Martin Akehurst was made Mayor-elect by his colleagues on Henley Town Council there were two unusual aspects.

Firstly, there were no other nominations so he was elected unanimously.Secondly, his proposer and Henley Residents’ Group colleague Dieter Hinke said he didn’t want to speak about the nomination, prompting Cllr Akehurst to quip: “I’d rather drink to it!”

It looks like we’re in for a fun year with the 65-year-old part-time actor as mayor.
