Ten years ago...

ORGANISERS have apologised for the faulty sound system that marred the service of Remembrance in Henley on Sunday. Hundreds of people gathered in Market Place to honour the dead from the two world wars as well as the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. But many were shocked and even angered that they couldn’t hear much of the Mayor’s address or two poetry readings by children because the public address system kept cutting out.

Henley town councillor Terry Buckett has died, aged 56. He had been battling cancer for eight months and finally lost his fight in the early hours of Tuesday at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading. Mr Buckett, who liked to be known as Terry, was a postman for more than 30 years and was made an MBE for services to the Post Office in 1998.

The owner of a controversial Henley bar is appealing against a decision to revoke its licence. Magistrates will now decide whether to uphold the decision made by South Oxfordshire District Council’s licensing panel to effectively shut the White Lotus Sports Bar in Hart Street.
