A SCHEME to establish a national rowing museum in Henley is to be considered by South Oxfordshire District Council. The National Rowing Museum Trust, under the umbrella of the Rowing Foundation, is aiming to establish the museum at Mill Meadows. It would be the first of its kind in the country.

Henley is to have a new leisure pavilion at a cost of around £620,000. Henley Town Council has agreed to go ahead with the pavilion at Mill Meadows which will house facilities for bowls and tennis players, river users and the general public.

Plans to close part of Chilterns End old people’s home in Henley have been criticised by town councillors. Members of the general purposes committee were worried about the loss of the 25 beds. Oxfordshire social services will decide the issue in June.
