I was shopping in Thame Market today and Princess Anne graced us with her presence. She was there to unveil a plaque to commemorate a market being on the site for 800 years. The sun was shining and she was very relaxed chatting to the stall holders and mingling with the crowd.
Thame market is there every Tuesday and only 5 miles from Lakeside Town Farm.
Lakeside town farm accommodation is only a few miles from the riverside town of Marlow a picturesque drive through the Chiltern Hills.
So visit the popular restaurant The Hand and Flowers owned by televisions celebrity chef Tom Kerridge right in Marlow town center. Pre booking is essential 01628482277
Don’t forget Towersey festival just 4 miles from lakeside town farm on August Bank Holiday weekend. Country entertainment for all the family.
Last Monday we had our annual campfire party held in the water meadows. Campfire was fuelled by a huge fallen dead chestnut tree with much more left for next years event.
Over 70 people came with their food to go on the barbecue…chairs drink and plates. The children love the relaxed atmosphere where they can run about and get into no harm, loving the small stream across the middle and fallen trees played on as ships. Not an electric gadget in sight!!!
Just like the old days when I used to play there with local friends.

Saw inspector Barnaby last night in Sydenham making a call in a phone box I have never seen before by the cross roads. The cross roads are one mile from our accommodation in Kingston Blount.
Sadly last night the fox got into our chicken pen and killed all of our 12 hens. How he got in and out is a mystery and of course he only took one away to eat and left the remaining 11 headless. So fresh new laid eggs from our hens are off the menu for a while but luckily our neighbour can supply us with fresh eggs.
