ANOTHER debate on local traffic conditions took place at the borough council meeting on Tuesday following the completion of the normal business, this being initiated by Coun Mrs Carson-Bury who made an impassioned plea for the diversion of through traffic from Henley by the provision of a bypass. She said that although the alterations at the Cross appeared to have assisted the flow of traffic more should be done to divert it from the town rather than aid its passage through it.

Miss Marlene Trendall, of Crisp Road, Henley, had a wonderful start to her holiday.While staying at Butlins Holiday Hotel at Cliftonville she was chosen as holiday princess of the week. Marlene previously entered the same competition while staying at Butlins Hotel in Brighton but was placed second. Looking very striking in a red bathing costume and with vital statistics 36, 24, 37, she now goes forward to the northern area finals of the competition.

There was a smaller than usual attendance of local organisations taking part in the parade to the traditional civic service at St Mary’s Church on Sunday. The parade was marshalled by Mr G H J Tomalin and played to and from the church by the band of the Sea Cadet Corps.
