RESIDENTS of Greys Road, Henley, say their lives are being blighted three nights a week by rampaging drunks leaving a trail of destruction — all in the shadow of Henley police station. They told the Standard they are woken in the early hours of every Friday, Saturday and Sunday by shouting, swearing, violence and vandalism. Garden walls have been pulled down, windows smashed and pipes and drains ripped out. Residents have overheard fist fights and had drunks urinating on their doorsteps.
Sacred Heart School in Henley has apppointed a new headteacher — and she is no stranger to the school. Karen Edwards, currently assistant head at Highcrest Community School in High Wycombe, has three children at Sacred Heart and lives in Binfield Heath. She will take up her position on January 1 after Tony McDonald steps down after three years.
The Henley branch line will not be reclassified as a community line without the support of residents, the Government has reassured Henley MP Boris Johnson. Fearing a decision to reclassify the line would be slipped through quietly, Mr Johnson sought the commitment of the new minister and the Government pledged any reclassification would need community support.
