A new welcome to Thame

Visitors to Thame will soon be greeted by new Gateway signs.

The current signs were installed in 2009 and have dutifully welcomed visitors to Thame since that time. However in the years since they were put in place there have been changes and the time has come to reflect these changes in the signs. Thame has been twinned with Sinaia in Romania; new estates have sprung up, one with its entrance falling outside of the boundary signs; a new Town Flag has been created and Thame Town Council undertook a re-branding activity that led to the creation of a new town crest. Next week the signs will be replaced with a new design, that both ensures our links with Sinaia are recognised and reflect the colour of the new Town Flag that was created in 2017. Alongside this, the gateway signs will be pushed further towards the boundaries of Thame Parish, ensuring that the new developments on Thame Park Road as well as all entrances to Lea Park are contained within the sign locations.

A new sign will also be installed on the Phoenix Trail to ensure that walkers and cyclists visiting the town receive the same warm welcome.

The existing boundary signs have colourful planters located under them (although some have been removed for various reasons over the years). These planters are also used as locations to advertise local events. Not all of the new locations are able to accommodate a planter, as some are on narrower highway verges. This means that a separate project will need to be undertaken in due course to establish alternative planter/sign locations. Some may remain where they are – while others may appear at new locations.
