Thankyou to Brian who sent this picture celebrating Europe Day! It shows the European Flag flying above the County Hall Museum in Abingdon.
Brian says, ‘It has been the flag of the Council of Europe since 1955. The UK is a founding member of the Council and, of course, is still a member.’
‘Much later, in 1985, the same flag was also adopted by the EC.’
There was very heavy traffic heading into Abingdon at 5 pm today.
The queue into Abingdon stretched out of sight towards Culham on the A415.
The traffic was also heavy going up West St Helen Street.
More people must have returned to work and school in April 2021 and traffic looks close to pre-pandemic levels.
The traffic was at its quietest during the second week of the first lockdown. The recent lockdown saw a smaller reduction.
