The first meeting of the Henley-on-Thames Archaeological & Historical Group under it's new stewardship took place on Tuesday evening, 3rd January 2012. There were many new faces to be welcomed by the incoming Chairman, Valerie Alasia, who noted the presence of the Honorary President, Ann Cottingham.
The Chairman congratulated HAHG member Mary Hooper on her new book ’Velvet’, recently reviewed in the Daily Telegraph Saturday supplement.
Members’ approval was received to a letter objecting to the proposed stopping-up of the historic highway at Northfield End on the basis of ‘once a highway, always a highway.’
