Ten years ago...

MOTORISTS in Henley, already seething after months of chaos from the controversial integrated traffic scheme, could face more traffic hell before Christmas as contractors begin roadworks at five new sites across town. Hart Street, Thames Side, Peppard Lane, Greys Hill and the footpath parallel to Norman Avenue will all be closed at various times throughout November and early December as drivers look set to suffer further delays and disruption.

Staff and parents at a Henley nursery fear an accident could happen near its entrance on Fair Mile because the town council refuses to allow any signs on that stretch of road. Signs to Orchard Farm Nursery were removed by the council because the nursery did not have permission to put them up and it was not “aesthetically pleasing”.

Top businessmen and women attended a glittering black-tie dinner and presentation evening at the Henley Management College for the climax of the 2007 Henley Business Awards. More than 60 businesses in the area took part in this year’s event and ONELAN, of Newtown Road, Henley, picked up business of the year and small business of the year awards.
