More than 30 members and supporters of the Thame Labour Party gathered for a garden party.
The event included a talk from newly-elected Labour MEP for the South East Anneliese Dodds who spoke about the impact she was having in the European Parliament.
The garden party also provided an opportunity to pay tribute to the work of retiring Thame town councillor Andy Gunn.
Mr Gunn served on Thame Town Council from 1995-2003 and again from 2011-2014.
Local prospective parliamentary candidate, Sam Juthani said: “Andy has been a hard-working and dedicated town councillor, and is held in high esteem by all who work with him.
“I want to thank him for all he has done to support Labour values in Thame over many years, and wish him a very happy retirement.”
The annual get-together also gave members the chance to discuss local and national political issues.
Mr Juthani said: “Among the subjects the members discussed was the proposed development at the Elms.
“A wide range of views were expressed but broadly people were unhappy with the plans because they feel it is the wrong place.”
