With just over a week to go until the Library’s Tour to the Houses of Parliament on Thursday 11 April, we are pleased to confirm that the tour is fully subscribed. The event has been so successful that we have even had to organise a larger coach from our local coach operator, Johnsons Coaches, to accomodate all 52 participants. We have also arranged for two additional coach pick ups from Johnson’s depot and in Wootton Wawen at the Stratford Road coach stop opposite the General Store, in addition to the pick up outside the library in Henley at the Market Cross.
Henley Community Library is excited to announce we have secured tickets for a tour of the Houses of Parliament on Thursday 11th April 2013, and would be pleased if you would join us. We have booked a coach which will depart Henley Market Cross at 8am. On arriving in London, you will experience a fully guided tour of the Houses of Parliament including the House of Lords and the House of Commons chambers. There will then be free time in London after the Parliament tour for you to take in the sights, enjoy a bit of shopping or relax in a cafe. Your coach departs central London at 6pm for your return trip to Henley.

Henley Community Library’s First Quiz Night on 14 January put 7 teams through their paces with Quizmaster Moss Foley. The teams competed at Henley Primary School hall in rounds for music, celebrity photos, fine arts, cinema, sports, current affairs and of course books. A big thank you to assistant head Elaine Field was who was on hand to welcome everyone and ensure that all went well.
Winning teams enjoyed a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates or biscuits. The Best Team Name was ‘Readers of the Lost Ark’. A lucky draw and a raffle sent more winners home with wine, gift vouchers, biscuits, chocolates, soft toys, potted flowers and gadgets. Thanks to the cornish pasties, generously given by Roddy and Julia at Yew Tree Farm Shop, as well as cakes, artisanal bread from Knead It, and vegetarian snacks, everyone ate well. The Second Quiz Night will be in April, details to be announced.
