Do you know an unsung hero? Nominations are now open for the Thame Town Awards

image001

Thame Town Awards are back and it’s time to celebrate our local unsung heroes who go out of their way for others to make our community a safer, more vibrant and happier place to live. Do you know someone who lives, works, studies, or contributes to life in Thame that deserves a Town Award? If so, nominate them! You can make your nomination online via the Town Council’s website, or collect a form from the Town Hall.

Company of the Year

A local company that has gone the extra mile for the wider community e.g., supporting community initiatives, offering opportunities, and practicing sustainability (companies can nominate themselves for this award).

Creative Arts Contribution

Someone of any age who excels in the Creative Arts and/or has contributed to the creativity of our town. This award covers a wide range of people – from the star of the show to the behind-the-scenes team and everyone in between. Nominations are welcome for any form of creativity.

Service with a Smile

There are so many individuals and businesses who consistently provide a friendly service in Thame, but who do you know that should be recognised for it this year? We’re not just looking for shop assistants – we also want to hear about opticians, carers, cleaners and doctors, to name but a few!

Sporting Contribution

This could be someone (or a team), of any age, who deserves a gold medal for their commitment to a sport or contribution to local sports. Perhaps a player who excels in their sport or someone who goes above and beyond to support their team from the side-lines. We are also looking for those who have made a notable contribution to sporting / fitness within the community.

Volunteer of the Year

Thame thrives on individuals who selflessly give their time to help others in our community. From fundraisers to friendly neighbours, there are plenty to choose from but who do you think deserves to be awarded Volunteer of the Year?

Volunteer Group of the Year

A volunteer group or organisation that has worked tirelessly for the good of our community. This could be a charity, but we also welcome nominations for less formal volunteer groups, who might have formed in response to the pandemic, or any volunteer group that makes a positive difference to their community.

To date, the Town Awards panel has awarded 73 Town Awards to local people and organisations.

Anyone can make a nomination. Visit https://www.thametowncouncil.gov.uk/community/town-awards/ and complete the online form, or pop into the Town Hall Information Centre to pick up a nomination form. Be sure to follow the Thame Town Awards Facebook page and on Twitter #ThameAwards to be one of the first to find out this year’s Town Award winners. Nominations are now open and close on Thursday 26 May.

Please visit https://www.thametowncouncil.gov.uk/community/town-awards/ for terms and conditions.

This year’s awards are generously sponsored by The HR Agency, Red Kite Radio, and Helpful Hirings.

“The HR Agency – People on purpose, is a Thame-based HR consultancy founded with a commitment to the environment and our local community.  Thame Town Awards provide our thriving community the opportunity to recognise and celebrate some of the brilliant people who make this such a great area to live and work! It’s a privilege for The HR Agency to be able to support this fabulous event.”

“Red Kite Radio, the Ofcom-licensed community radio service for Thame, Haddenham and the surrounding villages, has been on the air since June 2017. During that time, the station has worked closely with Thame Town Council to bring community information to the notice of all our listeners. As part of that process, Red Kite Radio is delighted to be one of the sponsors of this year’s Thame Town Awards, which recognise the incredible contributions of individual people in our town.”

“Helpful Hirings is so pleased to have the opportunity to support an event that praises local heroes. As a local business, it is amazing to see the amount of people who are being recognised for their hard work and dedication to the community. The Thame Town Awards is an event that highlights those who do that ‘little bit extra’ and it is a privilege to be sponsoring such an occasion.”

Welcome to the June edition of Look Local Over the Garden Gate with @lucieponsford_mimosagarden of @mimosagardendesigner_lucie . Today, we delve deeper into our gardening knowledge. We’ve explored apex woodland, grasslands, deserts, the tropics, and water plants. Now, let’s take a step further and understand the distribution of plant groups and their families worldwide. This understanding forms the bedrock of our gardening practices.Read full article here: https://look-localmagazine.co.uk/look-locally-over-the-garden-gate/ ... See MoreSee Less

This is so sad to read. Another local festival will be no more 😔To those attending this years The Beacon Festival have the BEST TIME! And congrats to our May Issue Competition winners Sean from Lewknor and Nick from Watlington! Enjoy 🎉It’s an incredibly difficult time for the festival industry, with a record 42 festivals having announced a postponement, cancellation or complete closure in 2024. Despite tricky conditions, Beacon Festival is going ahead in under two weeks time – which we cannot wait for! This year, our stages will look a little different, but we promise the same wonderful Beacon vibes as every year. However, the Beacon team have had to make a tough decision in light of skyrocketing festival expenses: Beacon Festival 2024 will be the last. We’d like to thank all of our loyal festival-goers who have supported us over the years and made Beacon what it is today. We’d love you to come and join us for one last time, and celebrate the final Beacon Festival with us, 21-22 June. Let’s make it a party to remember! Day and weekend tickets still available. Kids under 14 go free 👉https://www.beaconfestival.net/2024-ticketsFull announcement here: https://www.beaconfestival.net/lastbeacon2024 ... See MoreSee Less
