Do you know a Henley 'face'?

A SECOND book capturing Henley?s diversity in photographs is to be published.

A SECOND book capturing Henley?s diversity in photographs is to be published.

People are being invited to become involved in the 100 Faces of Henley project.

The first book of photographs, published in 2012, raised more than £9,000 for charities and individuals in the town and surrounding area.

The 288-page, full-colour commemorative book also contained a short biography on each subject, including TV presenter Phillip Schofield, from Fawley, actor Rodney Bewes (Henley) and magician Paul Daniels (Wargave) as well many familiar local people.

Richard Reed, a trustee of The Face of Henley charity, which is organising the project, said: ?We?d like anybody who is a Henley person and would like to be in it to give me a call.

?It can be anybody who is part of the Henley scene.

?Many people have got a copy of the first book on their coffee tables but there are so many interesting people in the town, we can easily get another 100 faces.? Mr Reed, a former news editor at the Henley Standard, added: ?We?re depending on the people of the town to come forward and help us and I?m sure that they will.?

It is hoped the book will be published by the end of the year and there will be a reception to mark the launch.

Money raised from sales will once again be donated to charities and individuals in need.

From Wednesday, September 2 to Tuesday, September 8 people can have their picture taken by professional photographer Charlotte Snowden at the Old Fire Station Gallery in Upper Market Place.

Even if more than 100 people come forward, they will still be included in the book.

The Face of Henley charity, which is supported by Higgs Group, publishers of the Henley Standard, was set up in 2002 to provide financial support to people in the Henley area experiencing tragedy or hardship.

If you would like to book a 15-minute slot, call Mr Reed on 07913 670249.
