Should a riverside town give priority to teaching its children to swim?
At the Recreation and Amenities meeting of Henley Town Council on Tuesday 29th May 2018 Councillors considered a detailed report on recurring problems on the meadows – written by HRG Cllrs Hinton and Miller and Town Hall staff. The report had been some months in preparation:
The Conservative Candidate claims that HRG is a high tax and spend party.
WHAT IS THE TRUTH?
Introducing our outstanding HRG candidate Michelle Thomas:
She is an experienced business woman and has proved herself as a tireless campaigner. But Michelle can speak for herself…
Last Thursday, 18th January 2018, there was a by-election in Henley North ward and the results were:
- Donna Crook (Con) 577 votes
- Paula Isaac (HRG) 484 votes
- Jackie Walker (Lab) 131 votes
Henley’s two wards, North and South, are divided by Greys Road. The Town Hall being in Henley North.
If you live in the South Ward, you might have had little awareness of the by-election, if you live in the North Ward, you can’t have missed it!
HRG protect services while keeping council tax rise to 12p per week – why it makes sense to restore the Town Council’s share of council tax.
The Town Council’s tax income for services has been cut every year in real terms since 2014. We are saying it should be restored to its original level to help make up for service cuts by the District and County councils. And remember this is only for the small part of council tax that goes to Henley Town Council: the increase is just 12 pence a week for a Band D household.
