Paul said, “I really love Henley and think it has so much going for it. I want to make a difference. I love the sense of community in Henley and the people really do make the place. I want to really engage with the retailers, hospitality operators and people that make Henley such a great place to visit and live. I feel Henley has so much unharnessed potential and we could attract more great businesses and increase visitor numbers.”
