Abingdon Country Market are now a regular at the quarterly Local Excellence Market.
I was told by Paul, collecting rent from stall holders, that there were more stalls than ever before. The plant stall was doing particularly well.
I expect some of the stalls, like Chillis 2 U, will be back in Abingdon next weekend at Miele’s, on 7th June, for the 2nd Abingdon Food Festival. (You can pre-book Chef demonstrations, and Wine and Cheese tastings on their website.)
Market Place events do seem to increase the footfall, and buggy fall, in Abingdon town centre.
I did hear that there has been some systematic destruction of advertising signs on lampposts over the last 2 or 3 months in Abingdon. Signs worth around £800 have been ripped down. (Evidence of ‘sign vandalism’ should be sent to the proper authorities. We know it is not any of the councils.)
