A WOMAN was attacked on Friday night as she walked home through Greys Road car park in Henley. Joyce Smith, of Greys Road, said she was walking through the car park at 11.10pm after helping her mother at the Three Tuns in Market Place. She heard footsteps and to her left saw a man following her. Then the assailant ran towards her, hit her in the jaw and kicked her. A local trader came to Mrs Smith’s aid after hearing her screams. Police are hunting the assailant, believed to be aged 18 to 20.

The Mayor of Henley’s annual Christmas party for the over-70s was carried through to a successful conclusion at the town hall on Saturday. Although the number attending was the smallest in years, this was largely due to the exigencies of age. Several old people sent word as late as Saturday morning that due to ill-health they would be unable to attend.

Humour, romance and a very high standard of acting were the main ingredidnts of George Bernard Shaw’s comedy Arms and the Man presented by the pupils of Henley Grammar School on Thursday, Friday and Saturday last week.
