Some trend setters in Abingdon have started to wear masks in public – a practice long established in Asia. I read somewhere that it was begun in Japan in 1918 during the influenza pandemic.
At the Abingdon Market the fruit and veg stall was extended into one long stall. This is to help social distancing.
Finishing Touch in Stert Street have been making some colourful rainbows to add to their shop window while the shop is closed.
Prices Stationers will take orders by email. They supply the raw materials for making all kinds of Art, including rainbows for the window, and VE Day bunting.
VE Day 75 is still planned for Friday 8th May. Many events will have been cancelled because of the lockdown but Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council have details of their plans for virtual events.
