Thame Vitality & Vibrancy Study Published

vitality

Miller Research and Chris Jones Regeneration were commissioned by Thame Town Council earlier in the year to carry out a study to establish an action plan to suggest how available funding should be used to maximise the vibrancy and vitality of Thame Town Centre. 

After several months of research, which included site visits, stakeholder interviews, an online survey and a public workshop, the report is now published and can downloaded here.

Should Thame be Stocking Up?

stocks

Cllr Bretherton is a Trustee of Thame Museum and a keen historian. He has recently undertaken some research and discovered the Statute of Labours Act of 1405, an Act that required every town and village to maintain a set of stocks in which to punish vagabonds, layabouts and drunkards. Should a town not posses a set, it would be downgraded to a hamlet and would lose its right to hold a market or fair. 

Stocks should not be confused with a pillory; stocks hold the feet at a low level whereas a pillory was for the head and hands. The use of the pillory was abolished in England in 1837 but being placed in the stocks is still legal in this country and there is no evidence that the statute of 1405 has even been repealed.

The Town Council is eager to gain your opinion as to whether a new set of stocks should be commissioned for Thame. Whilst it in unlikely that our town will be downgraded to a hamlet for not possessing a set, it has been proposed that stocks would be a welcome addition to the town to assist in community fundraising and tourism. Please get in touch if you've been desperate to hold a sponge throwing competition and lack the right equipment or if you think the idea of a set of stocks deserves 'twelve strypes with a rodd'.
