Following the measures announced by the UK government, most traders in Henley will be closed from Thursday 5 November to Wednesday 2 December except for takeaways and essential supplies.  

Henley Town Council is still planning to launch the Christmas Advent, plus have three late night shopping events (until 7.30pm) on the 3rd, 10th and 17th December to SUPPORT HENLEY. Government guidelines allowing.

Please also remember The Henley Basket which will hopefully be useful to you whilst the town is in lockdown to keep spend in the town.  The Henley Basket aims to create revenue for the town’s traders and take some of the stress out of your Christmas shopping.

Further information can be found on www.henleytowncouncil.co.uk and www.visit-henley.com or you can call the TOWN HALL on 01491 576982 during office hours.

We hope that you and your families stay safe and well.

Please note that we will keep these arrangements under regular review.
