Mayor's grandson and his heavy metal group

FEW people would associate Henley with heavy metal or punk rock groups but two teenagers aim to change that.

Jake Clark and George Buckett formed four-piece band To Burn and Blossom more than a year ago and hope to record their first EP soon.

The 16-year-olds rehearse weekly at the home of George’s grandmother Pauline in Western Avenue. Mrs Buckett is the widow of former Henley mayor Terry Buckett, who died in 2009.

The boys, who are in year 11 at Gillotts School, put the band together for a school talent show in March last year, which Jake organised.

Jake plays bass guitar and George the drums while the group’s vocalist is Josh Clapham and the guitarist Jake Burford, both 19 and from Whitley.
