Henley Round Table Chairman 2013 Robert Tatman explains, “We’re really excited by the programme for this year’s May Fair. We have been organising the event for many years and together with our other events the annual Fireworks and the Christmas Float, the May Fair is an opportunity for many local charities to raise funds and gives Henley an opportunity to come together for a great afternoon by the River. Our thanks also go to our sponsor IBS Office Solutions and to Henley Town Council for their support.”

The Henley Round Table is a voluntary group for men aged 18 to 45 with the aims of meeting socially and raising money for local causes through the annual events of Fireworks and the Christmas Float.  In the past 3 years, the Round Table has donated over £20,000 to local charities including the Chiltern Centre and Bishopswood School.
