Thame Good Neighbour Scheme Launched

launch

On Wednesday 11 March, representatives from town and county organisations came together to celebrate the launch of Thame Good Neighbour Scheme.
 
The scheme was an idea born from the Thame Alliance Group and has come to fruition through the support of the Town Council and Sharing Life Trust. It aims to help vulnerable and isolated people within the community, regardless of age, via its team of volunteers who have kindly offered their time to assist others in need.
 
Town Mayor, Jeannette Matelot Green, welcomed everyone who was in attendance, which included Thames Valley Police, Citizens Advice Bureau, representatives from the local churches, Lord Williams’s School and OCVA amongst others. With the connections that these various organisations have within the community, it is hoped that awareness of the scheme will spread to those who need it most.
 
If you know someone who could benefit from a bit of help now and again or if you would like to become a volunteer, visit our website at www.thamegns.org or call 07913 713452.

TTC Appoints New Town Clerk

GHunt
Thame Town Council is pleased to announce that Graham Hunt will be taking on the role of Town Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer following the retirement of the current Clerk, Helen Stewart BEM.
 
Graham has 11 years experience in similar roles at other town councils following on from a career in the private sector, mostly in Information Technology and management roles. He is married with four daughters – with the last one just leaving her teenage years behind her. He is a keen utility cyclist and dog walker and will take the opportunity to explore around Thame further. Graham has expressed his appreciation of the friendly welcome from all the people he has already met in Thame – from the lady picking up litter in one of the housing estates to the gentleman pleased with his purchase of pork chops from a local butcher.
 
There has been a fair bit of learning throughout his career and Graham is a strong believer that the learning never stops.  He is sure that his wide-ranging skills and experience will be used well in his support for the Town Council and the community it serves.
 
Graham will be starting as the Town Clerk on 1 April 2015.
