A Coach load of residents from Henley once again set off from Oates Close for a day trip to Skegness. The weather was very kind to us and the children were on their best behaviour. Barbara, one of our Committee members organised a raffle to raise funds for the group. This raised a laugh on the bus.Mums and kids headed for the amusements, keen to spend the £5.00 that the group donated to each child under sixteen.Fish and Chips were enjoyed by many of the members.b The return journey was somewhat quieter as several of the children were asleep after a hectic day.
On Wednesday 3rd July and Saturday 6th July the Henley community held a Poppy Picnic in support of our armed forces in Afganistan. We held raffles to raise money and Barbara did a great job at tombola. The cakes, buns and savouries went down a treat and were provided by Glenys, Winnie and some were donated by the ladies themselves.The events raised a total of £200.00 which was sent to the British Legion. Photos were put on the internet of the picnic cakes table and we found out in September that we had won second prize of a food hamper and a letter of thanks from the Royal British Legion.
