My wife has been organising the raffle for the Arts Festival Ball at the weekend. All the money raised goes to help run the arts festival. As always Abingdon Businesses have been very generous donating prizes. They include:
Boots the Chemist
Prices the Stationers
Smiths the Chemist
On Thursday this week the Christmas Extravaganza takes place in Abingdon. The Parade is at 6:45pm. The lights get turned on at 7pm by Nicola Blackwood MP. The winners of the ‘Find a Fairy’ competition will be announced at 8:15pm just before the fireworks.
Since Saturday children (and parents) have been going round the town, finding the fairies – one for each letter of the alphabet – in shop windows. I’m sure ER Goffs will still have some Entry Forms, and this is all the details you need to supply :
Name of Fairy Name of Shop
Some of the entries for the best Tea Cosy competition can be seen in the window of Rosie’s Rea Room.
A knitted tea cosy featuring the front view of Rosie’s Tea Room is one of the winners.
