T D H & M F 2014

The first count and interim amount raised for the Breast Cancer Campaign this year is £2285.49. This will certainly increase as there is some more money to be added in later as it comes in.

Despite not having the street collection this year, this is still a fantastic amount. Thank you again to all the hard working volunteers who made this possible.

Saturday 21st February is the provisional date for next years event. Once this is confirmed the date will go on the website.

If you have any simple, great ideas to raise money next year, please pass them on to us.

Thame Dollshouse & Miniatures Fair 2014

Thank you to everyone who attended and helped make the day a success. A very big thank you to the volunteers who manned the fund raising tables, you were fantastic. Once we have a total raised figure we will post it here and on the web page.

Thank you stand holders, and we hope you all had a good day. We realise fortunes are always mixed , and people spend their money as they want, but we trust you had a worthwhile day.

We have had some very positive feedback, but as always any ideas you have to improve the fair are welcome. Did the traffic around the fair flow more smoothly, did I manage to unblock the congested areas we had last year? Not sure what we can do to improve the canteen, but we will talk to them.

For those that could not attend because of ill health, we wish you a speedy recovery and hope to welcome you again next year.

Once again thank you all for your support.

Thursday 20th

I was around the Thame area today. Despite it being a very mixed day, showers a bit of sun and the dogs coming in soaking wet from a long walk across the fields. The rain has made little difference to the roads.

Forecast looks better for the next two days.

See you all Saturday

T D H & M F 19 Feb 14

Felicity went over to the venue today, conditions were good, no flooding and parking was okay. It has been a reasonable day here and the forecast for the next couple of days is good, in fact I do not remember the last February that is as mild as this.

Everything on track for a great day.

Tuesday Update - 3 days to go

Peter Clark had to pull out of the fair yesterday on health ground. He will be missed this year as he is regular at the fair. Phoenix Models have stepped into the breach at very short notice, so we are thankful for their help.

Very mixed weather today, but it has had no real effect on the surrounding area. Roads are clear

T D H & M F 2014

Monday 17th February. Felicity's birthday today. We often had snow at this time, but it is so mild there is no chance of snow. Bit of a grey day, drizzle but no real rain. Forecast dry for the next few hours. Roads around Thame no problem, however I still get diverted by fallen trees. SAT nav gets very upset when I follow a detour. Tour in detour seems very appropriate sometimes.

See you all Saturday

T D H & M F 2014

Today has been another clear bright day. No rain, wind, just sunshine. Water is slowly receding. Roads are clear.

Going into North London tomorrow, it will be interesting to see  if the weather has had  an impact there.

Saturday, 15 February 2014


Today the weather has been dry, sunny and windy around the Thame area. Last night the wind was so strong it demolished a brick pillar supporting the fence on the boundary. Last week a few trees came down, but with less rain this will give the ground a chance to dry so the trees will stay in the ground.

Weather looks more seasonal for next week.

T D H & M F 2014

Every thing is ready for the day. Tables checked, can't do with a repeat of last year, when the table supplier pulled out a week before the fair.

The table plan is on the website, some changes but not to many. We have had to adjust some positions to fill in gaps and try to keep a logical structure to the movement around the fair. We have also tried to take account of some of the feedback we have had and hope we have improved the areas where bottlenecks caused congestion.

Now can everyone please cross their fingers or say a dry weather prayer so that we get a dry spell before the fair.

Remember doors open at 10.00.

Not Long Now

I returned from Avorias in France yesterday. Replaced snow with rain, at least you can ski on snow, rain is just wet.

Everything is on track for a really good fair. A superb range of Artisans and stand holders, we hope something of quality for everyone to see and buy.

My job now is to place information about the fair on all the local what's on websites, and cross those Ts and dot the Is.

Doors open 10.00 on Saturday 22nd February.
