Thame War Memorial
Thame Town Council have had reports of people fishing in the war memorial pond which is not permitted. This is not a pond to fish in and we ask that the community treat the memorial area with respect.
Thame Fair – road closures
Thame Fair is returning this year between 19th – 22nd September. From 7am on Wednesday 18th to midday on Sunday 22nd there will be traffic and parking restrictions in place around the town centre. The Town Council will be putting out signs in relation to the removal of vehicles from the town centre in preparation for the fair to arrive. Please read these notices and be aware of the restrictions in place for parking between the dates specified in the notices.
The Neighbourhood Team are working towards a week of action to combat knife crime as part of a national initiative Op Sceptre. As part of this we will be actively targeting premises and locations associated with drugs to help disrupt criminality associated with carrying weapons. If you have any information relating to drugs and knives then please let the team know as soon as possible.
There are knife amnesty bins located at Abingdon and Aylesbury Police stations if you would like to dispose of any bladed articles safely. The bins will be at the front counters between Monday 16th September and Sunday 22nd September.
Schools are back!
We all hope the children of the local community had a great summer break and are all excited to be back at school! With the new term starting, please can parents, guardians and responsible adults please be mindful of where you are parking your vehicle during school pick up and drop off times. Often schools are near residential houses and even if it is just for a short time, please park responsibly without blocking drive ways.
Updates of what we have been doing
Our annual Emergency Services Day was held on 10th August at Southern Road recreation ground. The Fire Service, Ambulance Service, Tiggywinkles animal ambulance and Highways were all in attendance. It was a great to see the local community and children enjoy learning about the local emergency services teams. Thank you to our TVP South & Vale Police Cadets who came along to support us!
Rural Crime patrols – it is the time of year when our local land owners harvest their fields and therefore we have been carrying out some rural crime patrols to deter offending. ‘Rural crime’ covers various offences such as criminal damage to land and crops, thefts of machinery and burglary to rural outbuildings. TVP pride themselves on our commitment to rural crime.
