VANDALS have left businesses with a bill for tens of thousands of pounds after rampaging through Henley town centre and gouging “tags” into windows — just before the newly installed CCTV cameras were switched on. They struck late last Thursday night, attacking 17 premises with a glass cutter and leaving the tags “DARK” or “SARK” scratched into the surface. The same tags were also spraypainted on walls.
Young Toby Marlow has more reason than most for wanting to be glued to the television on Boxing Day. The 10-year-old from Henley will make his professional debut in the third of four new productions for the Miss Marple story, The 4.50 from Paddington. He plays James Stoddard-West, an English and French speaking aspiring sleuth. Toby belongs to the Henley-based Acorn Music Theatre Company and has been actively involved in the Henley Youth Festival and had starring roles in numerous amateur productions.
A woman who spent more than an hour trying to get hold of a telephone number for Townlands Hospital has called the mix-up a disgrace. Donna Berenger, 69, who lives off Church Street, Henley, said the wrong number was being advertised in the latest editions of the phone book, despite it being changed 18 months ago. The number was changed from 572544 to 637400 in March last year.
