Marking the WW1 centenary in Thame

Thame’s Service of Remembrance will be taking place at the Memorial Gardens on Sunday 11 November 2018. The procession, which will include Town Councillors, members of the Royal British Legion and other community groups, will assemble outside the Town Hall at 10.30am ready to proceed to the War Memorial.

Following the service everyone is warmly invited to Christchurch for refreshments.

A copy of the Order of Service will be available to download from the Town Council’s website at www.thametowncouncil.gov.uk/remembrance. Copies will also be available at the Information Centre and will be distributed at the Memorial Gardens on the morning of the service.

Beacon Lighting 
In the evening, a Beacon will be lit at the War Memorial at 7pm as part of the national Beacon Lighting ‘Battle’s Over’ event. The Mayor of Thame and President of the Royal British Legion will open the event at 6:50pm, and after the event Tay o’ Lay will perform music through the decades commencing with familiar songs from the First World War. The church bells will Ring Out For Peace and the Last Post will also be played. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Commemorative Projects 
As 2018 marks the centenary of the end of World War I, a variety of commemorative projects have been undertaken around Thame. Almost 200 homes and businesses in Thame where over 300 servicemen once lived before going to fight in the war will display a poppy, or poppies, in their front window from 1 to 12 November. The poppies, printed by Windles, have been coloured in and cut out by local schoolchildren, scouts, guides, the Youth Café and Day Centre. Poppies with a black centre represent those who did not return, and a white centre represents those who did.  This visual and poignant tribute has been made possible thanks to extensive research by the Thame Remembers project.
