Henley Society Talk – Aldermen and Mayors: The Life of Henley before the First World War

Wednesday 10 March

Speaker – Michael Redley

The local authority of Victorian and Edwardian times, the Town Council first elected in 1883, built well and all these years later we still live largely within the geographical limits and ideas about the town which they pioneered. Twenty individuals had been Mayor of Henley by 1914. Who were they? What were their backgrounds? What were the main politics of the town at that time? Michael will reveal all in a fascinating 40 minute talk (followed by questions).
