The Local Excellence Market was on in Abingdon this morning. The Town Crier was there to announce what else was happening in town – possibly the flower festival at St Michael’s Church, and the Dunmore Pre-School 50th anniversary. I was too high up to hear.
The trees are turning a deeper shade of amber as September draws to a close.
I saw the first adverts for the Christmas Extravaganza. After S Club 3 last year, The Honeyz will be performing this year. For the first time, brochures will go to every house in Abingdon.
Enjoying the views from the County Hall roof was a lady from Australia. After three days at the Crown and Thistle recovering from the flight over, she will be going to Wales and then Scotland. She stopped here because Abingdon is England’s oldest continually inhabited town and she like it here, and the people.
She had bought a T towel of a fox from Claire Cross’s stall and was raving about Claire’s pictures.
When I passed by a few minute later Claire said that she still had a couple of fox T towels but no more donkeys – apart from the display copy.
