    Bank holiday weekend is here again!

    Thame Driving Blog

    About 2 years ago I was approached by several customers about information that we know as "motor industry experts" but is unknown to the wider public.

    I thought that knowing what to do to pass your MOT or how to claim money back if you hit a pothole was easy information to find. Apparently not, and anayway when it comes to cars and motoring, what I have found is that there is alot of guff and untruths out there. The feeling I got was that people want to listen to people that they trust.

    So....I started writing articles about useful motoring information, amusing tales and local information. I now send this out to over 2,000 people on a monthly basis along with other motor related emails and generally get really good feedback. In fact what happens now is that my readers are now telling me what to write about.

    I hope you enjoy the articles and if there is a particular topic you want to know about then please let me know.


    I’m sure we only just had a Bank Holiday weekend, yet here we are again, about to go into another long weekend.

    I could get used to this, especially with so many great things going on in the Thame area to keep the whole family entertained!

    Here are my top 3 picks for what to get up to this weekend.

    Number one…

    The charity football & family fun day on Bank Holiday Monday.

    Taking place between 12 and 4 a the ASM stadium, this looks like a lot of fun and is raising money for a great cause: the Air Ambulance in memory of Barnaby Cork.

    Number two…

    The famous Tiddington car boot sale on Sunday.

    I don’t know about you, but I love a good mooch around a car boot sale!

    If you’ve got the appetite for it, you could even use the opportunity to convert some of your old junk into cash in hand… and then spend it again on somebody else’s junk.

    Don’t you just love being British?

    Number three…

    Music In The Park between Noon and 9pm on Sunday.

    If you’ve any energy left from your romp around inspecting the attic contents of the good people of Oxfordshire, head over to the spectacular Music In The Park at Elm’s Park in Thame.

    30 acts on 3 different stages, a beer tent, kids entertainment and a guaranteed convivial atmosphere.

    Now what’s that weather supposed to be doing this weekend…

    If any of these tickle your fancy, head over to the Thame Town Council website for more details on each of them, and a bunch of other things to do that didn’t quite make it into our top 3.

    Whatever you’re up to this weekend, have fun and stay safe.

    Happy weekend!
