Since the outbreak of COVID-19, our Thame community has sprung into action. Neighbours are connecting and looking out for each other more than usual; informal support groups have organised to support people in need; charities, volunteer groups, businesses, churches and many others have all rallied together to support the town and it’s residents. Working together, Thame Rewards Club – Shop OX9 and Thame Town Council have launched these awards to recognise and celebrate some of the incredible work that has been done. 

You can nominate in one or all of the following categories:

  • Community Champions: an individual or group who you feel has gone above and beyond to support you or other members of the community during lockdown. 
  • Local Business: a local business that has helped support you, or those you know, during lockdown. 
  • Charity: Each year Thame Rewards Club donates 20% from funds raised from the sale of membership cards. This year there is an award of £500 up for grabs! Is there a local charity that has risen to support the community during lockdown?

When you nominate please include comments/stories to celebrate and thank your nominee(s) as this is all about sharing the LOVE! Let your nominees to know loud and clear how much they are appreciated. Although there are no specific prizes, each nominee will receive a certificate with these comments included. Thame Town Council and Thame Rewards Club are also planning to create a visual display within the town centre using your words to showcase how our community has pulled together.

Nominations can be made through a form on Thame Rewards Club’s website which you can access at www.thamerewardsclub.com/thame-lockdown-love-awards until 31 August 2020 and awards will be distributed at the start of September.

So get involved in sharing some Lockdown Love by nominating today!

Another way you can ‘show some love’ locally is by shopping as much as you can in local businesses. Our town centre will only remain strong and vibrant during this time if we use it.

Hello Readers,Welcome to the October issue! How seasonal is our front cover image! It literally makes me want to jump in and snuggle into one of those jumpers. I love autumn, all the colours and crisp mornings, although summer does seem to have made a late appearance this year doesn’t it, with this gorgeous weather we’ve been having recently. The perfect weather for tending to our gardens before the cold snap returns. If you are a keen gardener, be sure to turn to our ‘Over the Garden Gate’ feature on page 28 by our resident contributor, Lucie Ponsford of Mimosa design.I also wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate our Abingdon Air & Country Show 2021 competition winners, Robert Grimes, Christina Brooks both from Chinnor and Katie Thomas of Chalgrove. I hope they and their families had a great time at this event as it returned for the first time since the pandemic.Whilst on the subject of events, Chinnor and Thame Friends of the Earth are hosting a Swap Shop and Bike Exchange at Chinnor Village Hall on Saturday 10th from 10:00am - Midday and Autumn Green Fayre at Thame Town Hall on Sunday 30th from 10:00am to 3:00pm. For more information on either of these events please contact Maureen Dyroff on 01844 352816 or chinnorthamefoe@gmail.com. We also have Halloween to enjoy (or avoid) later this month which was great last year in our local villages as lots of houses got really involved in turning their homes into ghostly haunts and leaving treats outside their doors. If anyone is looking for Window Stickers or Vinyl Decals to dress their windows for this spooky affair please visit my other businesses Facebook Page - Scratch-em & Vinyl as we have a vast selection of creepy designs available.And don’t forget to turn your clocks back an hour on Sunday 31st at 2:00am.As always, Stay safe, continue to shop and support local...Love Emma xTo read this Edition, click here: https://issuu.com/looklocalmagazineoxonedition/docs/octt21_issue107_32pg_web_version ...
