Thame is switched-on!

Last Friday evening saw the lights switch-on in the town centre. There was the annual lantern parade featuring beautifully hand-made willow lanterns made by pupils of Thame’s Primary Schools, two adorable reindeer to pet and feed, rides on a minature steam train and a visit to Santa’s grotto as well as other attractions, performances and a wide variety of stalls.
Crowds gathered around the tree to hear the Christmas Blessing which this year was given by Pastor Anthony Taylor from Grace Church (who had also stepped in as compere at the last minute) and the winner of the town trail was announced by the Mayor of Thame. Well done to 8 year old Lilia Manga who was chosen as the winner and received tickets for Thame Children’s Cinema and a chocolate lollipop from Rumsey’s. The runners up, Heather Kirk age 6 received Whizzkidz tickets and Taylor Spink age 10 received a game from Wally’s toy shop and both received a chocolate lollipop courtesy of Rumsey’s.
Father Christmas arrived on his sleigh and once on the podium, the much awaited countdown for the switch-on began. As Lilia Manga accompanied by her younger brother Joe and the Mayor, Cllr. Ann Midwinter pushed the plunger, the crowds cheered and the town centre was lit up. Thame Concert Band accompanied the community carol singing to round off a wonderful evening.
Thank you to ASM Auto Recycling for donating the tree, Thame Cars for sponsoring the lantern parade and to all our generous event sponsors; Lucy Electric, Risborough Carers, 3B Vehicle Hire & Servicing, Park Street Dental Clinic, Penguin Stu6ios, Shout PR, JJ Plumbing and Thame & District Housing Association, and to all of our sponsors and supporters this year. This event simply wouldn’t be possible without the generous support we receive from local businesses and the community.
