Lightfoots Solicitors – a forerunner in supporting Thame’s Green Initiatives

Work has already been progressing to achieve Thame’s Green Living plan and early in 2022 Lightfoots Solicitors were one of the first local companies to sponsor a partnership initiative between 21st Century Thame and Thame Green Living. 

This funding has allowed the partnership to make good progress on projects such as :

  • 20mph throughout Thame and Moreton
  • Anti Idling and Air quality monitoring
  • Cycle Racks and encouraging Active Travel
  • Numerous Tree and hedging projects in and around Thame (pictured)
  • The New Thame Repair café
  • Electric Vehicle Hire Club
  • Thame Drive Electric Event in September
  • LoveThameHateWaste – and trying to attain the status of Plastic Free Thame
  • and more

Joe Middleton, Managing Partner of Lightfoots, said, “We are delighted to announce this association with this environmental partnership bringing together our award winning firm with 2 organisations who have recently received awards themselves as Climate Action Heroes from the High Sheriff of Oxfordshire.  

Lightfoots have been part of Thame’s history for over 150 years, with multiple generations of families both as clients and members of Lightfoots (Henry Ovens followed both his Father, John Ovens, and Grandfather, Charles Ovens, into the firm). Supporting our community is really important to us and being able to play a part in protecting and enhancing the quality of life in Thame for the next three generations, and beyond, is an honour.”

Lightfoots Solicitors have four offices in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, working for clients across the UK. Their heritage and community-focused ethos give them a unique perspective on the challenges local businesses and other organisations are facing. They have three principal areas of service – for business, for lenders, and for life. Their values are based on conducting business to the highest ethical standards, encouraging a ‘we over me’ mentality, providing innovative solutions and delivering excellence in everything they do.
