Que Pasa en Abingdon?

Advent Windows
At 8pm there were a lot of people out in West St Helen Street singing along to the live Silent Night Carol on their doorsteps.

Afterwards our neighbour mentioned an Advent Windows trail raising money for Helen and Douglas House at the old workhouse estate (Abbot Road, Thesiger Road and a bit of Oxford Road).

I cycled down there and was amazed how many houses had taken part and how good the windows were.

The pandemic and a WhatsApp group has brought the workhouse estate together.

If all communities were like this there would be Peace on Earth.

I then cycled to South Avenue and looked at their advent windows. They have been doing Advent windows for a few years. Their trail also raises money for Helen and Douglas House.

One window said ‘HO HO HO’.

Another said ‘HOPE’.

Cycling back through Abingdon town centre I saw another new window lit up. The Que Pasa Tapas bar & Mediterranean Restaurant has opened. Que Pasa in Spanish means What’s happening in English.
