VALUABLES worth more than £130,000 have been stolen in a wave of burglaries in the Henley area in recent days. More than £100,000 worth of possessions, including eight paintings, a walnut desk and porcelain vases, figurines and plates, were stolen in one raid on a house in Sonning on Friday evening. The burglars broke in by forcing a patio door.
Henley Town Council is inviting applications from supermarkets for the sports centre in Mill Lane. Following confidential talks over the last few months with its agents, Donaldsons of London, the council has advertised the land in national trade papers for development as a supermarket and car park. The Mayor Tony Lane said the council was advertising nationally in order to get the best possible price for the land.
Furious Henley residents say they will oppose former Mayor Graham Payne in his bid to retain an unauthorised car park behind flats in Vicarage Road. District councillors recently supported action to re-instate the car park to gardens but members of the town council’s plans committee favoured the development provided it is properly landscaped and kept specifically for parking.
