HARPSDEN schoolgirl Kate Tilney has won two skiing gold medals, despite a serious cycle accident
HARPSDEN schoolgirl Kate Tilney has won two skiing gold medals, despite a serious cycle accident. Kate broke her shoulder, collarbone and arm in the accident while on holiday in Spain last year. She was determined to compete in the British schoolgirl races in Flaine, France, last week and, although still undergoing physiotherapy, she not only took part but won gold in the downhill giant slalom and slalom events.
Councillors have shied away from proposals to bring carousels and hoopla to Henley during the royal regatta. Cllr Jonathan Barter proposed that the council enter into discussions with a fairground operator about holding a fair on Mill Meadows. But he fell foul of a recommendation “that a policy is adopted not to rent land on Mill or Marsh Meadows to commercial organisations with heavy machinery”.
Town councillors have given up waiting for George Harrison’s widow to say what she wants to do about a memorial on the lawn opposite the Red Lion Hotel in Henley. At a meeting on Tuesday, councillors decided the time had come to press ahead with action to tidy up the site, although they would still welcome input from Olivia Harrison.
