Two new spider’s web climbing frames have made an appearance in Abingdon in the last few days…
One is in River Close playground – at the dead centre where there used to be nothing.
The other is at Caldecott Rec. also at the centre where there used to be nothing.
There is, of course, nothing strange or wonderful in all of that …
Mostly Books have been responsible for many celebrities coming to Abingdon, in recent years. Tonight Gervase Phinn – best selling author, raconteur and Yorkshireman – spoke to a packed Guildhall. He also spoke to most individuals coming into or out of the hall as that is where the book signing table was set.
New piles have been sunk on the other bank of the Thames to help secure that bank from further erosion. It might even provide space for a few more boats.
The Alzheimer’s Club had a sale at the Guildhall. The craft objects on offer had been made as an activity by members of the club which meets at Abingdon Community Hospital – Monday to Friday. The money raised was to support that Alzheimer’s Club – which helps provide stimulation and social interaction.
