RADICAL plans for a multi-million-pound riverside art centre, marina and hotel complex have been developed by a Henley arts group. But the vision was scuppered by town councillors who said any development at Marsh Meadows, which the council owns, was unacceptable. The Henley Partnership, which promotes tourism in Henley, is due to hear details of the proposal from its cultural group on Monday.
Robbers threatened a 17-year-old shop assistant with a large hunting knife in a raid on a newsagents. They entered McColls in Goring High Street and, after browsing around the shop, one of the men bought a drink and the second went to the till to buy a chocolate bar. When the till was opened, the first man went behind the counter and threatened the teenager with an 8in knife. After snatching £100 from the till, they ran from the store.
The town council could hire a security guard for night-time patrols at Henley’s riverside meadows after a spate of vandalism, arson, drinking and drug use. The town management committee received a letter at its meeting last week from a disgruntled boat owner who left his town council moorings in Mill Meadows three months early because of the trouble.
