THOSE who waited outside the Regal Cinema in the rain last Friday evening may have been slightly disappointed at seeing fewer well-known celebrities than in previous years, but all those who saw the film Othello would agree with Mr Caden-Prescott, president of the Henley Midnight Matinée, that it was the finest film to be seen since the event began in 1960. This year the occasion raised more than £2,200, mostly for the Imperial Cancer Research Fund.

In a report to be presented at today’s meeting of Oxfordshire County Council, the police committee refers to the introduction of the traffic warden scheme in Henley. It recalls that in November the council authorised the employment of wardens since when the Chief Constable and Henley council had agreed that a fixed penalty scheme be brought in at the same time. Offending drivers will have to pay the sum of £2 within 21 days or face proceedings.

A car coming down St Mark’s Road, Henley, was in collision with a car travelling along Vicarage Road on Wednesday. Mr M J Webb, of St Mark’s Road, and his wife and daughter were taken to Battle Hospital but released after treatment. The other driver was Mr R M Church, of Marmion Road.
