The Henley Society has a history of tree planting in the town and were responsible, jointly with Henley Town Council, for planting the avenue along the Fair Mile some years ago that enhances the northern entrance to town. That scheme, known as the Fair Mile Jubilee Scheme, was completed in the 1970s. We had wanted to do something similar to make the southern entrance to the town a little more attractive. In 2022 we finally got permission to plant eight trees on a triangle of land owned by Oxfordshire County Council at the junction of Reading Road and Sheephouse Lane.
Eight of our members generously sponsored a tree in memory of a loved one and plaques at the base of each tree signify such.
