Thame Town Council strives to maintain the vibrancy and vitality of our thriving little town, and is keen to work with and support the businesses who choose to base themselves in it. We hope the information provided here is useful to you, but if there is anything else that would be useful to have on our site, please let us know. Contact details can be found on the ‘Support for your Business’ page.

Responding to Covid-19

The impact of the extraordinary circumstances under which we are all currently living call for cooperation between the community, volunteers, and businesses large and small to pool their knowledge, skills, and resources to the common good in a spirit of mutual support.

As you will be aware Thame Town Council is not able to offer direct business advice. However what we do have are contacts, networks, and access to higher authorities who can assist businesses in responding to challenges and resolving particular problems. During this time we have set-up a NEW online business forum ‘Thame Businesses Together’ today. Please come and join us to:

  • have the opportunity to talk to other businesses to share knowledge, advice and experience to help in the present
  • access shared resources to support you at this time
  • offer what assistance you can to support other businesses and the wider community
  • receive updates on any relevant local information 
  • take part in planning now that restrictions are beginning to ease, to bring people back to our local town centre, and to find ways to remind the public of the part played by local businesses in making lockdown more bearable.

There will probably never be a better opportunity to champion our local economy, so please join us now and also help to spread the word to other local businesses who you feel would benefit from, or contribute to, Thame’s economic and social wellbeing through this forum. You can sign up through the link below:

We have also been working in partnership with Thame Rewards Club, who approached us early on during the crisis to offer to keep an up-to-date listing of all opening hours/ changes to services being delivered by our Independent businesses, in order to support them as much as possible during this difficult time. Your business may already be listed as they are proactively seeking out and publishing new information at the moment. If not, then you can claim your free listing there today.

Our Responsibilities

Thame Town Council is responsible for a number of services in the local community, however, we also have a strong working relationship with other tiers of authority who provide additional services such as recycling, highway repairs and benefits.
