A PETITION has been launched to erect a statue of George Harrison in Henley. James Lambert, 42, of Friday Street, has already collected more than 700 signatures in support of his campaign for a monument to the former Beatle, who lived in Friar Park from 1970 until his death in 2001. Supporters include Henley MP John Howell and a number of town councillors.

Members of a Henley theatre group will perform for the Queen when she visits the town later this month. Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh are to attend a garden party for 4,000 people at Henley Business School on Monday, June 25. They will travel from Hambleden on the 130-year-old steam boat Alaska and be greeted by Mary Bayliss, Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire.

A colourful apple sculpture has been given to Henley by its German twin town. The 175lb artwork was presented by visitors from Leichlingen to symbolise the partnership. It has been placed in a flower bed in Gravel Hill. The apple includes images of landmarks in the town, including Henley Bridge and Leander Club.
