Foes forget festivities

AFTER a heated exchange between them, Henley town councillor Simon Smith still wished former mayor Ken Arlett a merry Christmas — but not without a parting shot.

The pair clashed at a planning committee meeting. Councillor Smith, who chairs the committee, made a statement at the start responding to concerns raised by a member of the public that he was taking “no interest” in the council’s neighbourhood plan steering group.

Mr Arlett, who was sitting in the public gallery, then identified himself as the resident in question.

When the meeting had concluded, Cllr Smith wished everyone a merry Christmas but said to Mr Arlett: “Smile, you’re looking grumpy like the Grinch!”
