Turning back the pages

HENLEY town councillors have hit back at claims by the new Safer Henley Independent Party that they have become lazy. SHIP announced last week that its members would be standing in the local elections in May and would contest at least 11 of the 16 seats in Henley. Chairman Bill Baker claimed the council was “in a state of inertia” and not tackling problems. But this week, Henley Residents’ Group, which holds power on the council, defended its work. Leader Terry Buckett said: “I am sure that most people in Henley know that we are hard working and dedicated.”

The refurbished d:two centre in Henley Market Place officially opened its doors on Saturday for a service of celebration. More than 120 guests attended, including many past members of the congregation. Before the service, guests were given guided tours of the new facility, which encompasses Henley Baptist Church and new offices for the Henley youth project Nomad.

First Great Western has agreed to amend its timetable to solve problems with services to London. Henley branch line passengers travelling to Paddington have complained that the timetable introduced in December has increased their travelling time and left some services overcrowded.
