The new town council notice boards are no longer blank. A map of Abingdon town centre has been placed below two sheets about services that are closed at the moment, and the slogan – Stay Home – Protect the NHS – Save Lives.
Abingdon Museum is closed and have a project recording people’s stories of lockdown.
People in their 70s are now getting the virus vaccine. The government announced today that over ten million people in the UK have had one of the vaccines.
