A former mayor of Henley has lashed out at the Henley Partnership, the town’s equivalent of a chamber of commerce, calling it a “disaster”. Councillor Barry Wood steered a motion through a town council meeting this week that will reduce any grant from the council for the partnership from a proposed £7,500 to £500. “The Henley Partnership is a fiasco and a shambles and has no link with business at all,” he said.
