To the Editor of the Henley Standard
Spring is nearly upon us, it is getting warmer, the sun is shining, the sky blue, and the rhododendron,
azaleas, daffs and tulips are popping up to say hello. I love spring and the colours and aromas.
But, most of all, I love Henley’s May Fayre! And we are back with a bang in the Market Place this year,
Monday 6th May from 12 to 5 pm.
It will be a fabulous fun family day kicking off with the maypole dance at midday followed by musicians,
dancers, performers, and other ‘local’ acts on stage throughout the day. There will be
some amazing traditional stalls selling everything from cupcakes to kids’ toys plus vintage fun fair games,
face painting, Jackanory, tug of war and so much more.
We are kindly supported by Henley Town Council and sponsored by Wilkins (Henley) Ltd, Penny &
Sinclair, Soha and Hot Gossip for which we are incredibly thankful and will be raising funds for the Henley
But, with all this happening, we do need a bit more help than last year.
Will you be one of a handful of ‘helpers’ and come on board the May Fayre ship to help make this May
Fayre bigger and better than last year? It would be good if we had support from all Parties in the town’s
council and of course anybody else who would like to help out. The more the merrier.
