To note that the Town Council reached the final 12 of the national Blachere / Revive & Thrive Christmas Lights competition, selected along with Farnborough, Halifax, Kidsgrove, Lancaster, Ormskirk, Pontardawe, Portishead, St Helens, Sunderland, Salisbury and Putney. Following subsequent submission of a video featuring Councillors, Officers and images of previous events to additionally note that Thame eventually came 3rd in the deciding competition, only just behind Ormskirk and Farnborough, which focussed on the attractiveness of the Christmas Lights event to the community. The video responded to the fundamental question “A family is faced with three places all with clashing switch-on events. Your place is one of them. What’s so good about your place and why should they choose you?”
