AS if anyone needed confirmation that Henley is a welcoming place, here’s an online comment from one of the crews that competed at the Henley Women’s Regatta at the weekend.
Laura White, senior women’s administrator with the team from Drexel University in Philadelphia, said: “For most of us, it was our first time in Henley and as we drove up many ‘ahhs’ went up from the team.
“As we drove over the River Thames into Henley, we knew we were in a truly special place.
“Henley is a quaint and beautiful little town that we will call home for the next six days.
“Home is the right word because next we found the four homes that we will live in. The families are lovely people and they have made us feel so welcome.
