AN amusing incident happened at Marlow Petty Sessions when Mr H G D Beales, of Hambleden, had been summoned for an infringement of the lighting order. Only one magistrate put in an appearance and, after waiting some time for a second one to arrive so his case could be dealt with, Mr Beales volunteered to fetch Mr Morgan, a magistrate who was unable to walk owing to an accident, in his car. Mr Beales’ offer was accepted and with the necessary quorum, the bench heard the case and promptly fined Mr Beales for his misdoings, notwithstanding his kind assistance. To show that he bore no ill-feeling, Mr Beales conveyed Mr Morgan back to his residence.
On Monday at 8.20pm, the fire brigade was called to an outbreak of fire at 18 Queen Street, Henley, occupied by Mrs Whalley. The fire originated in a bedroom, from an accidental cause.
The quartermaster of the Henley Red Cross Hospital, which has been closed for spring cleaning, writes: “The hospital opened again on Monday and, though our numbers are small, we shall be most grateful for a renewal of the gifts which our generous friends have been in the habit of sending us each week. We should be glad of still more eggs to carry us over the winter months.”
