THE nightmare on Hart Street, Henley, appears to be over after the Mayor admitted the decision
THE nightmare on Hart Street, Henley, appears to be over after the Mayor admitted the decision to narrow the road down to one lane had been a mistake. The closure of the lane caused traffic to back up to White Hill, leaving drivers fuming as it took them up to an hour to get down into the town.
Farmer Brian Doble picked up the Henley Show’s Supreme Champion trophy which has been connected with his family for 85 years. In 1921 his grandfather collected the trophy for winning the cultivated root vegetable class at the show. It remained in his possession until his death in 1960 when Brian’s parents handed it back to the show’s organisers. On Saturday it was back at the family farm at Shiplake after his Holstein cow was crowned.
The ice cream trade in Henley looked to be heading for meltdown before town councillors pulled back from shutting down two stalls. They discussed licences for a trailer in Mill Meadows and a van on the New Street slipway. The licences were approved by a narrow margin after some frosty words from Councillor Gill Zakss, who told councillors not to be “killjoys”.
