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.

Love seeing all these posts of pubs and restaurants reopening! Here’s an update from The Angel in Bicester 🍻Oh hi there, remember us? 🙋🏼‍♀️ We remember you and can’t wait to welcome you back on.... 🥁 MONDAY the 12th APRIL!! 🎉🔸Opening Hours. The pub will now be open from 4pm-10pm Monday - Thursday. 3pm - 11pm Friday 12pm - 11pm Saturday 12pm - 9pm Sunday The bar will close 30 minutes before closing time allowing you all enough time to finish your drinks. 👩🏼‍🌾🔸Booking. We have decided that the best way for us to operate means will not be taking bookings, tables will be on a first come first seated basis. 🪑🔸Track & Tracing! It is now mandatory to collect track and trace information from ALL customers. Yes, that’s EVERYONE on your table. We have the relevant NHS COVID 19 poster with the QR code specific to us. You’ll find this on displayed on arrival a member of staff will also have a portable one to bring to your table when they take your first order so we can ensure that everyone has signed in successfully. We would advise that you download the NHS-Covid 19 app before you arrive to make the process as smooth & simple as it can be. No worries if you can’t, we have wifi and you can download it here! No excuses 👀*No track & trace = No drinks* 🔸Face Coverings. We must ask that on entering the building at any time you do so wearing a face covering. Once seated at a table you may remove it. However if for any reason you need to leave the table, for example to come inside to use the toilet, or entering the pub itself for any other reason you must put your face covering back on. 😷🔸Table Service Only. Once you and the members of your group are seated a member of staff will be over to take your order.If you need us just flash us a smile or give us a wave and we will be with you as soon as possible. 🔸Rule of 6.There is a maximum of 6 people to a table however each individual table has its own maximum capacity. Although it’s tempting to stand up and mingle as we’ll all be outside we ask that you remain seated and don’t hop from table to table. 6️⃣I know that’s a lot of information to take in, trust me, we’ve been trying to process it all ourselves. Like always we will do our best to operate the best we can and provide an environment everyone feels safe and comfortable in. ItThank you for following the rules and understanding that they’re not things we want to do but things we HAVE to do. 🥰Much Love Hannah & Team Angel 🧡*P.S, please come prepared for the weather! Bring your own, blankets, brollies, coats, hats, suncream or anything else you might need to shield you from the weather of all four seasons. ☀️🌱⛈❄️🍂As we know, we can experience them all in one day 😂* ...
