And the longest serving market trader award goes to…
Terry Hankins! At Thame Market’s Community Day yesterday, Terry (pictured right) was presented with a silver plate to celebrate over 35 years as a trader at Thame Market, making him the longest serving trader at Thame’s weekly Tuesday charter market. Terry was presented with the award next to his fruit and vegetable stall by Mike Broun (Chairman of Thame Market Traders Co-Operative) and the Mayor of Thame, Cllr Tom Wyse. Congratulations Terry!
The Community Market Day was a great success with several local organisations and charities holding a stall and selling everything from plant pots and rainbow merchandise to knitted clothing and toys, all in aid of great causes. There was also face painting, balloon modelling, tombolas, live music and a massive bouncy slide! Local MP John Howell attended and met some of the local organisations too. Thame Market Trader and secretary of the Market Trader’s Co-Operative, Chris Hurdman added it was the most successful market day ever and Thame was buzzing. He also thanked the Town Council for their support with the market’s event.
