Come on a magical evening walk and enjoy colourful displays in the windows & gardens of Thame in a brand new event which takes places between Friday 18th – Thursday 24th December 2020.

Thame’s Window Wanderland also invites all residents and town-centre businesses of Thame to take part by creating one of the displays in their own windows or gardens. Each display will form part of this magical trail that will amuse, entertain, and enthrall the whole community during the week running up to Christmas. Over 120 venues have already signed up but there is definitely room for more! Please spread the word and save the date for this magical event.

What goes into the displays is totally up to you: from a string of fairy lights to a band playing in the living room, from simple to spectacular: as long as it’s family friendly, anything goes. It’s easy to put your house on the map if you want to make a display, just visit our event here www.windowwanderland.com/event/thame-2020 to sign up. There is plenty of inspiration on the website in the ‘display ideas’ pages.

The community initiative is being organised by Thame’s 3 primary schools with support from Thame Town Council and Lucy Electric. The event will be raising money for the schools and the fundraising link is also available at the web address above.  Closer to the 18 December a downloadable map will be released on the website to allow you to easily find every venue that is taking part. Printed maps may also be available – check the website nearer the time.

Window Wanderland was created in 2015 in Bristol by Lucy Reeves, a mum, artist and ‘nosy parker’ who says:

“Everyone has a playful side to them they just need an opportunity to show it. I wanted to make an event that anyone can participate in and do something different. This brightens up the long Winter nights giving everyone a great excuse to get outdoors. It is a proper grassroots community event. Since 2015 we have had over 47 events nationwide, including overseas. You are joining in with a happy family of not-for-profit volunteers who want to brighten their world!”

As a not-for-profit organisation, Window Wanderland is passionate about social change and recognises that although we live closer than ever, we are becoming more isolated, with over 7.5 million people now living alone in the UK. Window Wanderland is embraced by those who see it, young and old.

Thame’s Window Wanderland aspires to bring positivity and warmth into people’s lives. It is an inclusive community event, aimed at bringing everyone together to have FUN. So tell your friends to save the date, wrap up warm, and join us for Thame’s magical Wanderland.

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 ...
