The consultants recently appointed to design and deliver improvements to Elms Park, The Environment Partnership (TEP), will be at the Thame Christmas Lights Switch on, on Friday, December 4, from 3pm to 7.30pm, and at Small Business Saturday on Saturday, December 5, from 10am to 2pm.

Spokesperson for TEP, Anna-Sophia Stamm, said: “The Park is an important component of the historic town centre and conservation area of Thame, and TEP will be working hard over the next few weeks to really understand the needs of the local community and those who regularly use the Park. The information gathered will be used to inform the design and to make sure that a really special and inspiring place is created for the people of Thame.”

Look out for their gazebo outside the Town Hall and go and share your ideas. TEP is eager to listen to what you have to say.

Thame Skate Park Opens

Wind and rain couldn't keep Thame's skaters from testing out the new skatepark that officially opened on Saturday 14 November. Despite the terrible weather, skaters and BMXers turned out to test the new ramps, bowls and rails that form part of the £250,000 redevelopment project.

The Town Mayor, Cllr Nichola Dixon, was joined by members of the Skate Park Working Group to cut the ribbon and let Thame youth loose on the ramps. In a welcome speech, she expressed thanks to all those who had worked hard to fundraise for the project and after some gentle persuasion, took to the ramps herself on what is expected to be her first and only taster of the facility!


Following on from the excellent turnout at the opening ceremony, the skatepark has been brimming with users throughout the weekend, demonstrating just how much the facility is cherished among the young (and not so young) of Thame and the surrounding areas.
