The annual Carol Singers from Abingdon Christian Aid were on the Market Place yesterday. John Enticott always sent me a picture for the blog. This year the singers braved the cold wind and hopefully raised quite a bit from passing shoppers. They even had some impromptu dancing from a happy toddler or two. It would have been Johns’s 77th birthday, and although everybody who knew him missed him, the brass band and singing did him proud. Thanks to John’s daughter for sending this.
The Town Crier was ringing his bell and announcing the Street Art Exhibition which had its last day today at the Community Shop. It was something new to Abingdon and well worth a visit.
Some firemen came to town later in the day. They were recruiting ‘On Call Fire Fighters’. Anybody interested can go along to the Fire Station any Tuesday Evening from 7-9 pm.
