THE Henley Standard’s Going for Gold campaign is only 28 hanging baskets away from its target of 170.
A further 25 baskets were ordered during the past week, bringing the current total to 142.
We are urging town centre shops, businesses and residents to buy summer hanging baskets to support Henley’s bid to win the gold in this year’s national Britain in Bloom competition.
Caroline Langler, a member of Henley in Bloom who has been co-ordinating the sale of the baskets, said: “We are immensely grateful to everyone who has bought one or more basket.
“As usual, the majority of the purchasers seem to be individual shopkeepers and it is disappointing not to see more chain businesses getting involved.
