A CAMPAIGN to stamp out dog fouling on Mill Meadows and Marsh Meadows in Henley is under way after complaints from parents whose children play there. Town councillors have vowed to take steps against dog owners after hearing a child slipped and fell in faeces. Mayor  Ken Arlett told the general purposes committee this week: “This is the last straw. Roaming dogs must be banned.”

Children believed to be about six to eight years old attempted to break into a pensioner’s home in Kennylands Road, Sonning Common, on Tuesday. They were foiled when the 72-year-old woman disturbed them. They had smashed glass in the woman’s front door after she failed to answer when they rang her doorbell but she heard the breaking glass and shouted at the children from her bedroom window. Police believe the children had originally planned a distraction burglary.

Almost £1 million worth of improvements are to be carried out at Henley’s Chilterns End home for the elderly. The £970,000 refurbishment of the 45-bed home in Greys Road home is due to start early next year and will take nine months to complete.
