TWO young Henley brothers received an invitation from the Queen to a children’s party at Buckingham
TWO young Henley brothers received an invitation from the Queen to a children’s party at Buckingham Palace on Sunday. Adam and Sean Bellman, of Chilterns End Close, joined 1,998 other children at the event to celebrate children’s literature. Adam, five, was one of 1,000 children across the country to win a place at the party after his mother Dawn entered him in a lottery for invitations. He chose eight-year-old Sean as his guest and the boys were accompanied by Mrs Bellman.
This summer’s Henley shop window display competition has been won by Rive Gauche in Hart Street. The ingenious display epitomises an English summer’s day spent at the Henley Royal Regatta — or enjoying a picnic in the car park. The part of the display which has attracted the most attention is a bagel filled with red balloons as “smoked salmon”.
Henley Mayor Barry Wood is urging residents to report drunken and antisocial behaviour in order to build up a dossier of evidence for possible action against pubs and clubs. He said: “Residents are having a miserable time because of the night clubs and pubs in this town. There is no way we want to have people treated like this but they have got to help us help them.”
