A Personal Thank You From Stefan

A Personal Thank You From Stefan
I’m extremely grateful and pleased that the residents and voters of Henley have put their trust in me for another 4 years. I was pleasantly surprised by the voting numbers, I have tried my hardest to do a good job over the last 4 years and it is good to see that a majority of Henley voters can see that. There are still some outstanding projects that I will turn my attention to during the next four years, notably the HGV ban. There are still some Henley roads that are in a shocking state and need repair and equally as shocking pavements. I will continue to address these during my term. Another thing I will be turning my attention to is Sue Ryder and residential palliative care in the South of Oxfordshire. It is unbelievable that we have no residential end of life care in this area of the county. Why should people who are terminally ill have to go all the way to Maidenhead and Reading to get the care they need. With their relatives, many elderly themselves, also having to travel long distances just to be able to see them. This, along with adult social care in Oxfordshire, will certainly form part of my agenda in the next couple of years to ensure that we get better services from the Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group and the County Council. This election is a win for me and also for HRG, the Henley Residents Group. I must thank my team of 25 people who worked on my campaign in HRG. We work as a team and although we are all independent, we are co-operative with each other to get things done. Special thanks go to Ken Arlett, Kellie Hinton, Glen Lambert, Gill Dodds and Jane Smewing who supported me personally and did an incredible amount of hard work for the campaign. Let’s get back to work!! read more

Henley Town’s bus service restarts 13th October 2020

Henley Town’s bus service restarts 13th October 2020

THE ROUTES

THE TIMETABLE

THE FULL STORY

The Henley Hopper, the new Henley Town Bus Service, will launch on Tuesday 13th October 2020. TK Travel, a local, family run company, has been appointed by the Council to provide this vital community service. A new 22 seater Mellor Strata bus, with a low emission Euro VI engine, has arrived at TK Travel’s depot and will soon start to travel the 151, 152 and 153 routes covered by the previous bus service. The service is programmed to start on Tuesday 13th October and a low key launch event will be held on Saturday 17 the October when residents are invited to come and see the bus, meet staff from TK Travel and see the sanitising processes that the company uses to help make the service as safe as possible. The service is not profit-making and is supported through housing developer financial contributions, and a subsidy from Henley Town Council, which has been supporting the routes since Oxfordshire County Council removed all its bus subsidies as a cost-cutting measure in 2016. TK Travel are a family run company, voted “Best Minibus and Coach Hire Company in South East England” in 2019 by SME News. They are taking their responsibilities with regard to the Coronavirus pandemic very seriously and can be seen sanitising their coaches on a video on their website: https://tktravelltd.com/#services.
