This April 1st the City Daily Photo has asked us to do a start of the month theme day called ‘camera shy self portrait’.
So here is one of me accidentally reflected in the side of a very shiny piano at the recent Abingdon Music Centre concert.
City Daily Photo has more Camera-Shy Self Portraits.
1864-5 Albert Park laid out by the charity Christ’s Hospital of Abingdon.
1865 Monument to Prince Albert, designed by J Gibbs, completed.
1867 St Michael’s Church, designed by G Scott, completed.
1870 Roysses School, designed by E Dolby, completed.
1875 Trinity Methodist Church, designed by W Woodman, completed.
Gothic houses in the North-Oxford style were set out around the park forming a fine Victorian residential area –
with gated private roads.
And from 28th June 2015, 150 years after the monument was unveiled, a new book about the park will become available. It is still possible to become a founding subscriber and have your name printed in the book. Address queries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to Ray from the Vineyard Church, who meet in South Abingdon, for this report on the annual Easter Egg Hunt in the Albert Park (on Saturday).
It was a bit of a wet and windy day but there was a good turnout. We had just under 100 children registered for the ‘Bunny Hunt’ and all got a boxed Easter Egg for finding the three bunnies (photo). There was the usual games of Egg & Spoon, Three Legged, Wheelbarrow etc.
The Tug-O-War was its usual success with boys against girls, and family rounds.
For the less energetic there was face painting and (temporary) Easter tattooing, cookie decorating and Easter craft.
For the even less energetic there was tea, coffee and cakes.
The whole event was free to all. They gave away over 100 Easter Eggs and other prizes.
