THE people of Henley have been urged to boycott Martins Newsagents when it opens its post

THE people of Henley have been urged to boycott Martins Newsagents when it opens its post office service on Monday. In a bid to force the post office back to Reading Road, Henley Town Council has asked people not to buy anything from the Bell Street shop, including confectionery and newspapers as well as anything from the new counter service. Councillors want customers to use sub-post offices in Northfield End and Reading Road instead.

Restaurants in Henley have been warned to keep pavements clear of rotting rubbish. Complaints from residents about maggots and overpowering smells appalled members of the town council’s environment committee at a meeting on Tuesday. The committee warned restaurant owners to sort out the problem before it causes a serious health hazard.
