Turning back the pages - 25 years ago

WHILE businesses nationwide are failing, nine new shops believe Henley is the place where they can succeed. Chimes Jewellers in Duke Street opens tomorrow (Saturday), joining Wooden Tops, Aurum Interiors and Fizz Fashions which all recently opened on the same street. Another shop is to be opened in Duke Street and 34 Bell Street has been bought by a fashion chain. Station Road welcomed Bon Appetit a few weeks ago, Pettit’s garage in Reading Road made room for Pettit’s of Henley mountain bike shop while Hooray Henley’s gift shop opened in Market Lane.

An appeal for a home for two young rabbits and their mother has been made after the animals were found dumped at the roadside. They were rescued and saved by the Payne family, of Swyncombe, who say they would have been an easy target for foxes.

A blistering attack on plans to build a Tesco supermarket at Mill Lane, Henley, has been made by a town councillor. Margaret Day criticised her fellow councillors this week for supporting what she claimed would have “disastrous consequences” for the town. Cllr Day was the only member to object to the application.
