We need your ideas for the next Blue Plaque!
Is there a part of Thatcham you love? Is there a little known story that you’ve heard? Is there something you remember that you miss seeing in the Town?
Suggestions for Thatcham’s next Blue Plaque are being received now! Led by the heritage working party, Thatcham Town Council is seeking submissions from the public proposing people, places or significant events to be commemorated by a blue plaque.
Chairman of the Working Party Cllr Gregory stated “Thatcham is far older than any of its neighbours, from Mesolithic settlements to the hunting estates of Kings, the town has a rich history that needs to be celebrated.”
The Mayor of Thatcham Cllr Cover launched public submissions at the Annual Town Meeting on Monday saying “The first blue plaque was unveiled during the 2018 Thatcham Festival; we want to build on that success by another installation and we want this one to be community led; exploring our history can be very revealing and I urge anyone with a passion for Thatcham to put an idea forward.”
If you want to take part but don’t have an idea drop into Thatcham Library to check out their extensive local history section and pick up a nomination form. Forms can also be collected from the Town Council Offices or downloaded below.
Nomination forms need to be returned to the Town Council offices by midnight on Sunday 31st March where they will be compiled into a shortlist and sent out for public vote.
